Well Head Recorder

The Reservoir Group Surface Gauge utilises Piezo-resistive sensor technology to provide superior accuracy and resolution of data compared to analogue dial gauges

ATEX approved for use in zoned areas, the Well Head Recorder (WHR) is a battery powered electronic pressure gauge that records surface pressure and temperature at a programmable sampling interval. The WHR’s accuracy and resolution is far superior to analogue dial-gauges and facilitates the gathering of a large amount of data with fewer trips to the well site.

The WHR features a clearly visible digital LCD display with 100mBar (~1.5 psi) resolution. An internal non-volatile memory is read using the USB interface and Reservoir Group software supplied. The software is very easy to operate and simple communication steps to download data from the WHR will provide a graphical display of data for immediate viewing. For the more advanced user, features such as plot manipulation tools, data export options and Gradient Survey/Report generation tools, are available.
