Stainless Cord Grips Protecting Electronics In the Oil & Gas Industry
Remke Stainless Steel Cord Grips are the perfect solution for corrosive environment applications.
One of Remke’s Stainless Steel Cord Grip Customers, a leader in the Oil & Gas industry, sent us some great feedback on the stainless steel cord grips they use and how they are holding up to the harsh environmental conditions in the energy and oil fields where they’re in use. They needed the best performing stainless steel cord grips for conditions that require corrosion resistance.
“Stainless Steel Cord Grips are a great solution for harsh jobsite environments.”
Providing sensors, controls, and electronics for oil field instrumentation is an important job, requiring precise measurement and tough equipment and components.
Stainless Cord Grips are a great solution for tough environments, where high-corrosion resistance is a critical factor. Stainless Steel Cord Grips are typically made from type 304 or 316 stainless steel, with type 316 providing greater corrosion resistance. Check out this infographic explaining the differences between these two types of stainless steel.
Stainless Steel Cord Grips in action in the oil and gas industry.
Our friends in the Oil & Gas industry find Remke Stainless Steel Cable Glands perfect for their application. The solution provides the ingress protection from outside moisture and, with customized bushings, allow the tubing containing wiring and electronics to pass through into the oil tanks.
These custom engineered cord grip bushings are a key component as they seal the bushing to the tubing. The bushings help protect the electronics and providing uninterrupted transmission of operational data. Because the cord grip body is constructed of stainless steel, it resists deterioration that other materials would not. Moisture, chemicals, and other contaminants are not an issue for stainless steel.
With the switch placement and fluid monitoring made possible with the Remke Cord Grips, cumulative errors are eliminated and operations run smoothly. Smoother operations and efficiencies save time and money.
