Designed for Long-Term Use in Subsea Locations

PTX 400 Subsea Wellhead Pressure & Temperature Transmitters

The PTX 400 and Asterix series of pressure, temperature and combined pressure/temperature transmitters have been specifically designed for long term use in subsea locations. They enable accurate process measurements to be made directly on subsea wellheads and production manifolds. In addition, precision temperature measurement capability is provided by a fully integrated high performance platinum resistance type sensor.

Product Features

Asterix Subsea

The Asterix Subsea pT/TT transmitter is small and light and has a level of true accuracy, stability and reliability not found in ordinary transmitters. The enhanced mechanical design enables production, simplified handling and safer installation. The tubular high pressure design of the sensing element makes it robust to over-pressure and pressure spikes. The small dimension of the sensing element and similar mass properties such as the surrounding hydraulic oil makes the sensing element almost insensitive to shock and vibration.
