Safety Plug for Immediate Oilfield Pressure Relief
- Date: May 20, 2013
The safety plug immediately relieves pressure, such as pumping against a closed valve. Unlike transducers whose kick-outs can slow pumps but cannot instantly relieve pressure, Oseco’s technology delivers immediate pressure relief.
The safety plug has a bursting pressure range of 6,000 to 15,500 pounds per square inch gauge and a flow rate up to 1,500 gallons per minute, the highest amount available. The plug lasts up to six months without maintenance and has been compression-loaded disc-tested to 3.5 million cycles with no effect on accuracy.
Each unit comes with certification paperwork documenting the plug’s accuracy.
