GE Oil & Gas introduces the Dual Seal Pneumatic Actuator, which utilizes an innovative dual-sealing system to help operators reduce unplanned production downtime by improving the reliability, efficiency and maintainability of well operations.
Suitable for a wide range of production tree and flow line applications, the Dual Seal Pneumatic Actuator is manufactured to deliver reliable open/close performance for control of wellbore or pipeline fluids and hydrocarbons. A key benefit of GE’s new actuator is the redundant diaphragm/piston sealing system that provides a secondary sealing system to maximize uninterrupted production and increase reliability.
“The innovative modular design of the Dual Seal Pneumatic Actuator allows for the potential utilization of a smaller actuator size depending on available supply pressures, providing a robust solution for greater field optimization,” said Phil Mason, president—pressure control for GE Oil & Gas. “This unique pneumatic design is capable of operating at supply pressures up to 250 psi, providing an advantage over traditional pneumatic actuators in the market.”
