Toronto, Ontario and New York, New York–(Newsfile Corp. – February 12, 2018) – Micromem Technologies, Inc. (CSE: MRM) (OTCQB: MMTIF) (“Micromem”) (“the Company”) through its wholly owned subsidiary Micromem Applied Sensor Technologies, Inc. (MAST), and in conjunction with its technology partner Entanglement Technologies, Inc. (“Entanglement”) announces that the AROMA model ATRA171 tracer detector analyzer has successfully passed all final performance testing and is now released to the market for field installations. The technology positions the companies to become global leaders in intelligent, in-situ automated oil and gas tracer detection platform delivery.
The new field platform represents MAST’s first fully integrated tracer chemical analysis system designed for the global oil and gas market. The new AROMA tracer detection analyzer fulfills an international market need for a fully automated in-situ tracer detection platform supported by automated oil well sampling and oil/brine separation. The fully automated and autonomous system allows for safer, more reliable sampling of tracer arrivals at the wellhead and faster more accurate sample processing.
Steven Van Fleet, President of MAST said: “Entanglement Technologies is a great technology partner to MAST. They recently successfully completed an extensive blind testing of alcohol-based tracer samples and statistically validated the results.” The results were in line with the recently published product datasheet. Several alcohols, including, IPA, 1-propanol, 1-butanol, 1-pentanol, and multiple fluoro-alcohols were simultaneously detected in the blind samples, over a blind sample range of over 3,000 ppb down to a limit of detection below than 1 ppb. The R2 value for all test were greater than 0.99 indicating excellent linear detector response.
In addition to being able to support automatically, adjustable, rapid sample frequency, to capture initial breakthrough of tracer concentrations at the wellhead, the planned auto-sampler allows for unattended sample collection and storage. This greatly improves sampling density and integrity, in field environments that preclude or inhibit personnel-based tracer sampling.
MAST will expand the international presence of the AROMA tracer detection platform, as its customers have long asked for a cost-effective platform designed for ruggedized field usage that addresses safety, accuracy, efficiency, and cost for the current tracer detection process.
“We listened to the needs of our customers and designed the AROMA tracer platform to be easy to learn and automatic to operate and maintain” said Dr. Tony Miller, CEO of Entanglement Technologies, Inc. “The intuitive interface and automatic processing eliminates the need for highly trained operators. The AROMA platform delivers outstanding performance 24/7.”
