Custom Oilfield MWD Sensor Designs

HITEC’s custom MWD sensor designs provide feedback for weight-on-bit and bending. These measurements are particularly important with todays’ directional drilling where operators require various inputs in order to provide the most efficient drilling operation. Our custom MWD sensors routinely operate at temperatures up to 500 degrees F and pressures of 10,000 to 30,000 PSI. Axial loads can approach and sometimes exceed 45,000 lbf. Typical of the environment, shock can near 100 g’s and HITEC sensors are designed and manufactured to survive these extreme environmental conditions with accuracies close to 0.5%.
