Engineering Marvel – The CPI SL6000 30 Meter Hardened Linear Position Sensor Since the introduction of our SL series hardened draw-wire Linear Position Sensors almost 20 years ago, we’ve learned a lot about long stroke hydraulics from our hydraulic cylinder… Continue reading The SL6000 Subsea Draw Wire Breaks the 100 Ft Barrier
As 2019 comes to a close, the team at CPI like many industrial businesses around the world, are inclined to review not only our own progress and well-being, but the progress of our industry (Electro-mechanical Switches and Sensors), related industries,… Continue reading 2019 The Year In Review
Its interesting to look at sensor manufacturer’s talk about the “long stroke” version of their hydraulic position sensors. They go on about how their amazing sensors can actually operate on stroke lengths of up to 1.2 meters in some cases!… Continue reading Long Stroke Draw Wire Hydraulic Position Sensor Overview
When CPI introduced its first harsh duty hydraulic cylinder linear position sensors over a decade ago, we designed them to be as compact as possible, primarily for installation into hydraulic cylinders. Some of our customers wanted them to work with… Continue reading Yes, Our Draw Wire Position Sensor Can Go inside Your Cylinder.
As oilfield engineering enjoys a resurgence of interest and investment, companies continue to look to advancements in technology to both reduce costs, and improve the safety of offshore drilling operations. In particular, active heave compensation systems use advanced hydraulic cylinders… Continue reading Heave Compensation Systems for Offshore Drilling
For well over a decade, CPI has been manufacturing a unique Hydraulic Cylinder Linear Position sensor, meant for the harshest environments, and longest stroke applications on the planet. We’ve learned a lot over that decade. We’ve not only improved the… Continue reading Have you Looked At CPI Linear Position Sensors Lately?
As Oil and Gas companies seek to expand and extend their retrieval capabilities both on and especially offshore, concerns about safety and exploration costs are never far from mind. Things have come a long way since the tragedy of Deepwater… Continue reading CPI Subsea Sensors Can Detect Reservoir Tank Levels 2 Miles Under the Sea
The environment in which the search for oil is conducted beneath the surface of the seas is ever changing and often treacherous. It changes constantly due to the ebb and flow of the surface of the water and operation during… Continue reading Motion Compensation System Hydraulics Can Get A Whole Lot Smarter.
Mining and earth-moving operations around the globe have inspired some of the largest, most powerful machines ever designed and built by man. These machines involve millions of parts and sub-assemblies and can weigh on the order of close to 500,000… Continue reading Position Sensing Hydraulics In Highwall Mining Equipment
Last year we discussed CPI sensor solutions for Oilfield hydraulic accumulators and cylinders, but in the fast-paced world of oilfield engineering, that was a long time ago. For instance in 2016, CPI didn’t have a fully subsea capable (qualified to… Continue reading Marine Riser and Tensioner System Hydraulics – Revisited.
