Morgan Advanced Materials has launched a new range of high-accuracy sensors for the oil & gas extraction sector, harnessing the unique capabilities of its proprietary piezoelectric materials which can provide reliable sensing and monitoring in high-temperature environments above 200ºC.
Suitable for applications from custody transfer to gas flow monitoring, the sensors from Morgan’s Technical Ceramics business draw on the proven properties of lead zirconate titanate (PZT).
With a compact footprint and extremely high sensitivity required – especially in natural gas applications – the sensors are capable of measuring both high and low flow to extreme accuracies.
Their ultrasonic nature suggests that they cope with potential pressure drop than alternatives, such as turbine meters and electromagnetic meters.
Made from a selection of inert materials including titanium, alumina and zirconia, the new Morgan sensors also boast enhanced corrosion resistance when compared with conventional alternatives. This is particularly useful in harsh environments.
