Oil and Gas

Power protection and conditioning are vital to Oil and Gas applications

A loss of power that results in downtime is not only costly, but represents a safety issue. AMETEK Solidstate Controls offers a range of DC and AC power solutions for upstream, downstream and transmission (pipelines).

Upstream, or exploration applications, typically include drilling rigs both onshore and/or offshore. These environments can be harsh (corrosive, humid, seismic, etc.), however power problems are not acceptable under any conditions.

Downstream, or production facilities, can be sensitive to power fluctuations where power outages can mean many thousands of dollars of both product losses and in restart time costs. Pipelines and transmission stations need continuous, clean power to protect sensitive valves and pumps from damage, as well as ensuring the constant, controlled flow of product.

Our UPS systems, inverters and battery chargers are designed to meet the specific, demanding needs of the Oil and Gas industry. From design life of over 20 years to our in-house manufacturing of transformers (the heart of every industrial power system), you can rest assured your power needs will be met.

Solidstate Controls' systems provide a level of insurance against failures associated with power disturbances. We have completed over 50,000 installs in 66 countries and have decades of experience partnering with leading Oil and Gas companies.
