When a major oil well components manufacturer was looking to upgrade their systems for drilling in the Atlantic, many factors had to be considered. Given that stands of pipe can be over 90 ft long, precise positioning was a must. However, accuracy wasn’t the only requirement. The sensors had to be reliable for years to come in a corrosive marine environment as well as provide the necessary certifi cation for the Oil and Gas application. After reviewing a number of potential solutions the customer choose POSITAL’s Explosion Proof Rotary Sensors.
