OTC 2012: Honeywell to exhibit safety and pressure sensors

Offshore staff

HOUSTON – Honeywell (NYSE:HON) will show a range of sensors and switches designed to enhance productivity and safety in a variety of oil and gas exploration and drilling applications at the upcoming OTC. 

Featured products include Honeywell’s new Model 425 and Model 425 High Accuracy Wing Union pressure sensors with either 0.2% or 0.1% accuracy for extra sensitivity in pressure monitoring of drilling media and monitoring of downhole drilling conditions. 

Honeywell’s new Model 427 Wide Aperture Wing Union has a rounded edge and wider aperture for use with more viscous mud and media blends and is available in 0.2% accuracy. 

Both models enable pressure monitoring of mud and media flow, enabling operators to accurately detect and monitor pressure spikes.

Also featured is Honeywell’s MICRO SWITCH BX2 Series for hazardous locations. The explosion-proof, weather-sealed design with flame path enclosures contain and cool escaping hot gases, with o-ring seals to render switches weather-proof, water-tight, and dust-tight. These switches provide the same performance as Honeywell’s MICRO SWITCH products, but are wireless. 

Honeywell’s OneWireless XYR 6000 Position Sensor allows remote valve position monitoring in a variety of applications to avoid the time and safety risk of manually monitoring valves in hazardous areas and remote installations. 

In addition to Wing Union pressure sensors, Honeywell offers a variety of pressure, temperature, and position sensors, load cells, and torque. The portfolio ranges from miniature sizes such as the Model S used for downhole tools and MWD (monitoring while drilling) applications, to large load cells and torque sensors to monitor tubing weight, insertion force, and wireline tension. Subsea, high temperature, intrinsically safe options are available.
