Production choke's torque 90% less than typical designs

Production requirement solutions are declared delivered by OGSI’s line of Lancaster production chokes.

Operating torque is said to be over 90% less than typical commodity-style designs. This offers ease with which this equipment may be automated.

Chokes comprise a stainless steel micrometer-type position indicator. It provides for precise orifice size readout. It remains on the choke even when mounting rotary-type actuators.

With only 27-lb-ft torque required to close the stem against 15,000-psig downstream of the orifice, a small 17-lb (24-v dc) electric actuator (drawing 2.6 amp at these conditions) is all that is required for automation. The actuator may be operated using solar power and is easily removed while the choke is in service and under pressure.

OGSI Lancaster models come in needle, cage, multi-stage cage, positive, and adjustable/positive style trims. Any adjustable trim style may be easily automated and any type actuator used with the maker’s standard components.
