Rugged, high-pressure connectors tough enough for down-hole oil drilling introduced by Amphenol Industrial
SIDNEY, N.Y., 17 July 2011. Amphenol Industrial Operations in Sidney, N.Y., is introducing rugged, high-pressure KTK electronic connectors enhanced with down-hole microD pigtails for the roughest applications in military, oil industry, and other industrial applications that require low maintenance, extreme accuracy, and dependability while remaining flexible and limiting the risks losing the connector. Amphenol manufactures these pigtails to user specification, and have a bi-directional pounds-per-square-inch (psi) rating of 20,000. These high-pressure down-hole connectors for oil and gas down-hole tools offer a high pressure and high temperature sealed connection.
These connectors use machined glass-filled epoxy thermoset plastic to withstand extremely high temperatures. The connectors come in a medium-temperature version that withstands temperatures to 170 degrees Celsius, and a high-temperature version that withstands temperatures as hot as 200 C. The connectors also have gold contacts, a Viton O-ring, and solder pot connections.
