ClampOn - Ultrasonic Intelligent Sensors
ClampOn - Uncomplicated technology, modular design, easy installation and little or no calibration are keywords describing our range of instruments. This range includes sand monitors, PIG detectors, vibration monitors, leak monitors, condition monitors, well collision detectors and corrosion-erosion monitors – all reasonably priced.
Our straightforward approach to design and installation means that our sensor systems can be commissioned by offshore personnel themselves, anywhere in the world, without factory supervision. However, to get the best possible results from your ClampOn equipment we recommend involving ClampOn when the instruments are first brought online. With several thousand instruments sold, ClampOn has become the market leader in sand, PIG and corrosion-erosion monitoring. This approach to the market has been very well received by our customers all over the world. Our leading-edge technology has made ClampOn capable and competitive in offering the products that customers are looking for. Our reference list is an expression of this. We regard sales to companies as BP, Conoco, Chevron, Total and Shell as vital proof that we offer instrumentation the market needs.Shell International has selected ClampOn as its principal supplier of sand monitoring systems after extensive testing of all available systems in the market. Although we are still a young and growing company, our personnel have extensive experience in the petroleum industry and we offer first-class expertise in this sector. Since we started, we have grown to be the largest supplier of passive ultrasonic systems to the petroleum sector worldwide. Focusing on our core technology has enabled us to sell user-friendly, cost-effective products to customers all over the world. We are represented in all major regions that are vital to the petroleum industry. Even though our headquarters and production line are located in Norway very close to the North Sea, 85% of our sensors are exported to every continent.
ClampOn Product IntroductionTo date (Q4 2017), ClampOn has sold more than 17 000 sensors worldwide on the basis of the best quality and good service. We have grown to be the largest supplier of passive ultrasonic systems for sand/particle detection to the international oil and gas sector.
All products supplied by ClampOn; sand detector, PIG detector, vibration monitor, well collision detector, corrosion-erosion monitor and leak monitor are based on the same, well proven technology platform. Both the topside and the subsea instruments incorporate Digital Signal Processing (DSP), complete digitalization eliminating analogue filters, circuits and amplifiers.
The intelligent sensor concept, of doing all signal processing within the sensor itself, has been developed since we founded the company. With the introduction of DSP technology, the sensors are fully digitized and more intelligent than ever. This means that one and the same sensor can be used for a number of different applications.
The digital signal processor within the sensor has access to the full ultrasonic spectrum and the type of result is decided by the software module it is running. The functionality of the sensor can be upgraded and/or extended by downloading new software.
There are two basic sensor models; one for topside applications and one for subsea applications. Depending on the application, additional hardware modules like active ultrasonic (for condition monitoring / erosion and corrosion monitoring), accelerometers (for vibration analysis), or temperature meters, etc. can be built in.
From the users point of view however, the sensors are normally used for one specific type of monitoring and we have thus chosen to simplify the product range marketed by separating the sensors by the assigned application.
