QM200 Slim

A small diameter, high accuracy quartz gauge for carrier applications up to 200°C

The QM200 Slim Quartz is an extremely small diameter Quartz Memory Gauge engineered to be deployed in Wireline Shock Housings/Carriers and tubing conveyed Carriers. At 0.75” OD, it is one of the most rugged and compact quartz gauges available on the market. The QM200 Slim complements the Omega QM range of Quartz Memory Gauges capable of high pressure and high temperature monitoring up to 200°C.

The QM200 Slim provides exceptional data quality up to an impressive 25 ksi using Quartzdyne’s state-of-the-art digital hybrid technology. The small diameter allows for a faster response compared to larger quartz gauges. A field replaceable 200°C memory module allows rapid change-out of the gauge’s electronics providing virtually uninterrupted use of the gauge when required for multiple runs. A large 1 million dataset memory module is supplied as standard, but a 2 million dataset memory module (max 185°C rated) is available as an option. Materials such as Hastelloy and Inconel are used in the manufacture of the QM200 Slim to help combat corrosion effects associated with use in HPHT hostile wells.

Reservoir Group provides a range of spring mounted Shock Housings/Carriers and tubing conveyed Carriers for deploying the QM200 Slim gauge as standard, but can design a Carrier suited to any application. Contact Reservoir Group for details.

 

Features

  • High pressure and temperature solution for up to 25ksi and 200°C
