HPHT connectors made
for subsea environs
Elite Series Three-Channel
Wet-Mate Connector is announced as an expansion of a high-pressure, high-temperature
product line — specifcally designed for extreme subsea and
The 15.8-mm-diameter instrument has been functionally
tested to 1034 bar and as high as 150°C. It is the latest of this
company’s HPHT feedthrus and wet-mate and dry-mate subsea connectors line. They communicate electrical signals from
downhole subsea pressure and temperature sensors.
Among patented design: concentric contacts individually
sealed within pressure-balanced, oil-flled plug and receptacle
connector housings. This protects both plug and socket contacts from external seawater environment. It also assures high
reliability along with repeated subsea mating capability in extreme pressures and temperatures.

Self-retracting lifelines serve harsh onshore,
offshore oil, gas, petrochemical environments
Greater reliability and safety in harsh petroleum environments
is announced for Miller DuraSeal Self-Retracting Lifelines.
Their patent-pending sealed technology serves demanding
onshore and offshore oil and gas as well as petrochemical locations. It prevents contaminants from entering the mechanism
to make the SRL IP69K certifed as it assures brake system,
power spring, and bearings are never exposed to debris, water,
DuraSeal SRL’s braking system withstands multiple falls. It’s
designed to install and transport easily with quick, low-cost
lifeline replacements in the feld.

Wireless networking products announced to lower
oilfield off-grid well pad communication costs
TeleOS unlicensed band point-to-multipoint radios are
announced to lower oilfeld communication costs.
They provide power-effcient SCADA communications with
I/O capabilities so upstream operations can bring modern
wireless communications to off-grid well pads. This reduces
capital and operational expenses, helps maximize production
effciency, plus enhances environmental and worker safety.
TeleOS offers 10 to 100-times higher throughput than nar-rowband radios with cost advantages.

Pull through mooring system connects/disconnects
mooring lines for less make-up time, added safety
Simple mooring lines connect and disconnect to midwater
buoys or foating facilities is delivered by a new pull through
mooring connector system.
It’s announced to reduce make-up time by more than 80%
compared to traditional methods, declares the maker, “saving
up to 5 days on vessel hire and installation time with improved
safety and avoidance of complex rigging.”
The pull through connector can be deployed on all turret-
based mooring systems. It meets requirements to disconnect
mooring lines, laydown, and reconnect new lines without a
vessel disconnection from the turret assembly.
The rugged, forged-in-alloy-steel connectors can be designed for any mooring line load requirements and installed
or changed using ROVs and pull through line from a support
vessel. They also avoid the need for corrosion packs.

IR tech, camera measure
gas leak emission rate
A patent has been issued for
infra-red-based technology which measures emission rate of gas leaks
from industrial process equipment. At the same time, Model QL100 which uses the technology, is also announced.
Previously IR camera technology only detected hydrocarbon
leaks and was unable to measure or quantify leak rate. Now
facilities can quantify leak rate in pounds per hour or other
QL100 is designed to work with FLIR hand-held IR imagers,
widely used in oil, gas, and petrochem sectors for leak detection. Operators quickly and accurately assess how much lost
product they are recapturing during Leak Detection and Repair

Pour point analyzer with thermoelectric Peltier-based cooling system
Pour Point Analyzer with
Peltier-based cooling system
is newly announced. It provides an indicator of the lowest temperature at which typically a fuel oil may be used.
Pour Point’s manufacturer declares this “an industry frst because of ability to deliver exceptionally accurate and repeatable measurement results — without the need for a chiller.”
This design feature negates the need for chilled water to reduce
running costs and “conquers logistical limitations which have
previously governed where and how pour point analyzers can
be used.” Complete Pour Point specifcs are free upon request.
