Putting a precision linear sensor into a subsea environment is one of the most difficult challenges in the sensing world. Sensors produce signals and they are inherently electronics-based devices. Liquid immersion is the enemy of all things electronic, including conductors,… Continue reading Precision Under Pressure: Subsea Linear Sensors and their Engineering
Hydraulic Position Sensing for Oil & Gas Recovery Applications Hydraulic cylinders deployed into drilling platforms such as land-based mast raiser systems are used for oil and gas recovery in a wide variety of fixed and mobile configurations. The hydraulic cylinders… Continue reading Rig & Mast Raiser Hydraulics
Like many other USA based manufacturers, CPI had many reasons to be optimistic about 2021 back in December of 2020. A COVID vaccine was on the horizon, business was off, but continued at reasonable levels. There was lots of talk… Continue reading Looking at 2021 – The Rear View Mirror that Wasn’t
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
