Transducer for down-hole ultrasonic transit time measurements

A HPHT (High Pressure High Temperature) transducer has been developed for down-hole ultrasonic transit time measurements.

Transducer for down-hole ultrasonic transit time measurements

The transducer is designed for transit time measurements in fluid/fluid or fluid/gas systems under High Pressure 690 Barg (10.000 psi) and High Temperature, maximum 150°C (300 °F). The minimum measurable time interval is 60µsec, limited by ringing. The transducer is based on a non-pressure compensated design, and the transducer is oil-filled. The transducer effect is achieved using a piezoelectric element operating around 5 MHz.

CMR has designed and built transducers for a wide range of application areas since the 1970’s, ranging from the transducers found in the FMC MPU series ultrasonic gas flow meters to the ES300 upward looking sonar and the NISEP 201 gravity based separator system.
