The Magneto® Pump Stroke Sensor is the latest new product from ASD Holdings (Advanced Sensor Design). ASD has successfully introduced unique products for the Oil & Gas Industry for over a decade. In this newest creation we find that the Magneto® Pump Stroke Sensor has been patented by Advanced Sensor Design. It is the world’s first pump stroke sensor that is mounted to the outside housing of the rig pump. It is mounted and stays in place by the use of a heavy duty magnet. The Magneto PSS is completely capable of detecting and counting Oil Rig “mud pump piston strokes” without having to make or be in contact with the pistons.
No Drilling Required for the Magneto® Pump Stroke Sensor
It is no longer a requirement to open the covers of the Oil Rig mud pumps to install a C-clamp style micro switch with a metal whisker. (Note picture below labeled C-clamp style micro switch) No longer is it necessary to bore a hole through the pump housing in order to get a proximity switch close enough to a piston to count actual strokes. (Note picture below labeled Cable going through pump housing) The Magneto® Pump Stroke Sensor is simple to install and easy to monitor!
No Intrusive Procedures Required for the Magneto® Pump Stroke Sensor
The magnetic base of the Magneto® PSS makes it totally different than anything available in the marketplace today relative to its form and fit. However, that is not its only outstanding feature. Advanced Sensor Design is using “State of the Art” electronic circuitry that has the ability to give the end user (Oil Rig Mud Pump Operator) an On/Off switch type electrical output. Just like what the conventional mud pump sensors emit today. The obvious benefit to the oil rig is that No Special accommodations to their Data Acquisition Systems are required.
The Magneto® Pump Stroke Sensor will be installed with any male connector of your choice. This allows for fast, and simple installation.
