Controlling hydraulic artificial lifts

Position feedback for hydraulic lift cylinders

The solution

Hydraulic artificial lift systems are enhancing energy efficiency and optimizing production rates through constant monitoring of downhole conditions and adjustment of the rate and duration of pumping operations. Controlling the velocity and stroke of a hydraulic lift is key to obtaining these benefits.

Balluff magnetostrictive linear position sensors are available with operating strokes up to 7620mm to accommodate all but the longest-stroke lifts.

The features

  • Non-contact, wear-free operation for long service life
  • Standard models for non-hazardous applications
  • Flameproof / Explosion-proof protection method for hazardous locations
  • NEC, CEC, ATEX, IEC, and many other international approvals for explosion-proof variants
Energy, oil/gas extraction, monitoring oil pumps
