Oil & gas penetrator design features


Wellhead penetrators and downhole solutions


Wellhead penetrators are designed in conjunction with leading oilfield-equipment manufacturers and are available in flange and threaded-mount configurations with explosion proof Class 1, Div. 1 & 2 ratings. Additional features include:

  • Standard lengths from 6  to 24 inches. Custom lengths available for special applications and packers.
  • Standard materials include stainless steel and 4130/4140 steel. Materials that offer resistance to application-specific corrosive agents are also available.

Surface and downhole connectors utilize stainless and plated-alloy steel housings to resist corrosion from a wide range of contaminants. Down-hole connectors are resistant to a broad range of corrosive agents including hydrogen sulfide.

  • Thread profiles are available to mate with penetrators from a wide range of manufacturers.
  • Surface connectors are available with EX certifications and straight, 45°, 60°, and 90° cable exits.

Additional capabilities include small-diameter configurations to fit through existing tooling, single-piece designs that support 6.6KV applications, extended mandrel lengths and field-detachable down-hole connectors.
