Connector for downhole oil and gas applications

Don Horne   

ametek 1215AMETEK has expanded its portfolio of high-pressure, high-temperature (HPHT) connectors with the addition of its latest Elite Series Wet-Mate connector. The 3-channel connector is designed to operate reliably in the extreme environments found in downhole oil and gas applications. The HPHT connector is just 15.8mm in diameter and has been functionally tested to 1034 bar and temperatures as high as 150ºC. The Elite Series Wet-Mate connectors feature a distinctive design in which concentric contacts are individually sealed within pressure-balanced, oil-filled plug and receptacle connector housings. That configuration protects both plug and socket contacts from the external seawater environment and ensures the highest level of reliability along with repeated subsea mating capability at extreme pressures and temperatures. 12-14-15
