CCS Pressure Switches for Oil, Gas and Pipeline Applications

Pressure Switches for Oil, Gas and Pipeline Applications

Today's global oil and gas exploration and processing industry demands the highest quality to ensure worker safety and environmental protection. Gas turbines are essential to the operation of oil and gas platforms, as they power compressors that inject gas into wells, force oil upward, and compress the output gas for transportation. Because of the high pressures and corrosive media involved in these oil and gas applications, the switches used must be durable and reliable enough to ensure safe operation over and over again. 

CCS's pressure switch series for the oil and gas industry does just that while addressing other common issues with traditional switches. CCS oil and gas pressure switches also eliminate the use of constant rate device technology in favor of CCS's DUAL-SNAP® action technology, which employs Belleville disc springs to reduce premature wear and switch failure. Because of DUAL-SNAP® action technology, there is no set point drift and thus no need for recalibration. 

Well-head control panels, chemical injection skids, pipeline pressure monitoring, emergency shutdown equipment, BOP systems, fire suppression systems, filter separators/scrubbers, lube oil systems, and pump and compressor management are examples of typical applications. 

CCS products can withstand the harsh, corrosive environments of any oil and gas application. CCS products can reduce maintenance costs and the need for replacement parts while mitigating unplanned or emergency shutdowns.

Understanding the Difference Between Trace or a Snap-Action Mechanisms in Pressure and Temperature Switches

Processes can use either a trace or a snap-action switch to provide an electrical response to the rise or fall in pressure or temperature.  

Trace mechanisms, also known as spring-based mechanisms follow or trace the exact pattern of pressure or temperature changes. These trace devices can include a helical spring or spiral spring, a Bourdon tube, or bellows in their mechanism. 

Unlike trace switches, a snap-action mechanism remains inactive during system pressure and temperature changes. When the set-point is reached, the snap-acting disc in the mechanism immediately reacts to activate the switch. Eliminating this ongoing motion until the point of activation and deactivation can reduce the mechanism and switch element wear, extending its duration. 

CCS pioneered the Dual-Snap, snap-action disc used to provide accurate and reliable pressure and temperature measurement under every operation.
