Pressure and temperature instruments for the Oil & Gas industry

Applications of Measurement and Monitoring Technology

Companies in the oil and gas industry face numerous challenges at nearly every link of the supply chain. From drilling to refining to transportation, they continually seek ways to reduce costs while remaining compliant with industry safety and environmental protection standards. For this reason, many oil and gas operations utilize process control measurement sensors—e.g., temperature and pressure instruments—to measure and monitor their operations and ensure they are running at optimal levels and in compliance with regulations. 

Pressure and temperature instruments play a critical role in a wide range of operations in the oil and gas industry. Typical applications for our products include:

When increasing demand places safety and productivity at risk, your facility needs instruments that can withstand extreme conditions and ensure peak efficiency. From fractionation and distillation to hydrocracking and process treatment, we have the right solutions.

Ashcroft: Your Single-Source Solution

Ashcroft serves as a single-source supplier for all measurement and control needs in the oil and gas industry. We design, engineer, manufacture, test, and calibrate a broad selection of products that help industry professionals protect resources, optimize operations, and more. Our temperature and pressure instruments, such as our multipoint temperature sensors, are regularly used in critical process measurement and control applications.

Throughout our over 165 years in business, we’ve earned the trust of industry professionals across the globe with our quality products and services. Our focus is on safety and protection and ensuring our instruments protect our customers’ people, processes, and profits. We develop innovative solutions that help ensure safety in all areas of the plant and in some of the most critical processes and applications. For instance, our Acid Lead Detection (ALD) process gauge and seal assembly was developed for hydrofluoric acid alkylation unit (HFAU) processes and are used within the cracking units. By offering dual safety containment and operations personnel notification, they provide safety and protection during the extremely hazardous process of checking for leaks that might occur within the gauge and seal assembly.

Importance of Measurement and Monitoring Technology for the Oil & Gas Industry

Oil and gas companies aim to lower operational costs while meeting regulatory requirements. One method of fulfilling both of these goals is implementing reliable measurement and monitoring technology—such as temperature and pressure instruments—in oil and gas equipment/systems. These devices allow engineers to monitor and track temperature, pressure, and other critical operating parameter levels and determine when system updates or modifications are required to achieve peak performance.

Some of the most critical measurements involve the catalytic processing unit. Ashcroft’s multipoint sensors offer control and accuracy, allowing for a maximized catalyst life cycle, providing safety, and offering investment protection.

By optimizing their operations, companies can better ensure the safety of their employees, the quality of their products, and the efficiency of their processes. Combined, this translates to greater cost savings and compliance with environmental sustainability practices.
