Salt Lake City, UT – October 30, 2018 – Quartzdyne, a leading producer of pressure transducers for the oil-and-gas industry, is pleased and proud to announce that it will be releasing its Gen2 Quartz and Piezo Memory Tools to the market from Booth No. 7432 in the American Pavilion at the upcoming Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition & Conference (ADIPEC). The show will be held from Nov. 12-15 at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
"In 2017, Quartzdyne introduced its Quartz and Piezo Memory Tools as an extension of our traditional pressure-transducer product line,” said Glenn Small, President of Quartzdyne. “Over the past year, we have worked tirelessly to incorporate improvements into these Memory Tool products. This release is the culmination thousands of hours of engineering, internal testing and field results to create a product that you can trust in critical oil-and-gas recovery operations around the world.”
The Gen2 Quartz and Piezo Memory Tools include the following upgrades: up to five times less power consumption than competitive models, which doubles the run time for quartz-based memory tools; Smart Battery Tracking that enables more efficient use of battery packs, which increases confidence in and reduces the total cost of battery ownership; four new application-specific integrated circuits (ASIC) that are designed to increase reliability by reducing modes of failure, minimize power consumption and increase run time at higher temperatures; optimized Piezo circuitry for improved resolution; and an improved software interface for easy programming and the quick, reliable downloading of downhole data.
The improvements will help further set the Quartz and Piezo Memory Tools apart from the competition. These memory tools have already established a new standard in memory-gauge accuracy and durability through their ability to monitor high-temperature and high-pressure surveys with more sensitive response, while simultaneously detecting interference and buildup in standard operational workflows. As standard features, the Quartz and Piezo Memory Tools offer a high-accuracy quartz pressure sensor, 200ºC (392ºF)-rated hybrid circuit, welded circuit enclosure, metal-to-metal seal and a side-port connector for easy access.
