Precise and explosion-proof solutions for tough conditions
Ever-dwindling resources require ever better, more effective technology for extracting fossil fuels. With highly robust, completely accurate and low-maintenance sensors, Balluff offers you precisely the products and solutions you need for oil and gas extraction in rough conditions. Supplied of course with reliable explosion protection with numerous international approvals.
Control and shutoff valves are used in many areas of oil and gas extraction, in refineries and in petrochemical plants. Here, they not only need to be protected against harsh environmental conditions, but also against explosion hazards. Explosion protection has the highest priority in this environment. Balluff has the ideal solution for every application: Our certified BTL magnetostrictive linear position sensors have numerous international approvals and are extremely reliable.
After tapping an oil field, discharge pumps do most of their work entirely autonomously. However, the pump parameters need to be monitored continuously by sensors and automated remote systems. Our BTL magnetostrictive linear position sensors guarantee totally reliable and high-precision position measurement under tough conditions directly on the pump, and directly allow conclusions to be drawn about the conditions in the pumping system.
Oil pumps have to be placed precisely over the borehole so that loads and wear are minimised as much as possible. Our BSI inclination sensors provide optimum conditions in rough outdoor environments: Their analog angle values make it possible for you to position the pumps with the utmost precision.
