Our Pressure Switches in Oil & Gas Applications
Today’s global oil and gas exploration and processing industry demands the highest level of quality to ensure the safety of workers and the protection of our environment. Gas turbines are critical to the operation of oil and gas platforms, driving compressors to inject gas into wells and force oil upward, as well as compressing the output gas for transportation. Due to the high-pressures and corrosive media involved in these oil and gas applications, the switches used need to be durable and reliable enough to ensure safe operation time after time.
CCS’s series of pressure switches for the oil and gas industry has been designed to do just that while combating other widespread issues associated with traditional switches. Corrosion problems were dealt with using our Welded Diaphragm Design while pressure issues, like spikes and pump ripples, were solved with a pressure threshold of up to 16,000 PSI. CCS oil and gas pressure switches also do away with the use of constant rate device technology in favor of our pioneered DUAL-SNAP® action technology utilizing Belleville disc springs to lessen premature wear and switch failure. The use of DUAL-SNAP® action technology also means there is no drift in set point and thus no need for recalibration.
Whether the need is on an off-shore platform or land-based, CCS products stand up to the harsh, corrosive surroundings of every oil and gas application. CCS has over 40 years of proven performance in this market giving us the knowledge needed to understand the unique obstacles found in the industry. Based on this knowledge, our products are able to reduce the costs of maintenance and the need for replacement parts while mitigating unplanned or emergency shutdowns.
Typical applications include well-head control panels, chemical injection skids, pipeline pressure monitoring, emergency shutdown equipment, BOP systems, fire suppression systems, filter separators/scrubbers, lube oil systems, and pump and compressor management. CCS has a worldwide distribution network well positioned to meet the urgent needs of this global market.
