QFT2™ Mud Logging Fluorometer

**The QFT2 System was originally developed and supported by a division of Texaco that no longer exists. In response to ongoing demand, Turner Designs continues to manufacture and repair QFT 2 systems. Although we are the equipment manufacturer, we do not have specific knowledge to support the application. If technical questions arise related to calibration or field methodology, it will be necessary to consult with an industry consultant familiar with this process.**

Texaco patented and developed the Quantitative Fluorescence Technique (QFT) introduced in the early 1990s as a well-site method to determine the fluorescence of crude oil extracted from the sample. QFT was a substantial improvement over the visual technique for detection of oil in drill cuttings or cores but still provided only a relative measure of oil in the sample.

Further development resulted in an improved method called QFT2™ . QFT2™ involves a two-point fluorescence measurement that yields estimates of both absolute oil quantity (weight % oil) and oil type (API gravity). The speed, accuracy and ease of application make QFT2™ a practical tool for the determination of oil concentration and API gravity at the well-site.
