ETC SASQUATCH PLUNGER VELOCITY SENSOR, CLASS I DIV 2/ZONE 2

ABOUT THIS PRODUCT:

Sasquatch is the next stage in the evolution of plunger detection. The unique design of Sasquatch is based on the proven technology behind the Cyclops® plunger arrival sensor. Repetitive fast plungers are a common problem in plunger lift causing costly damage to equipment and production downtime. A lubricator breach can lead to incident reports, spills and injuries. Hoping to avoid these issues, producers replace lubricator springs and plungers on a regular basis. In many cases, perfectly good equipment is being prematurely discarded, leading to wasted labor and equipment costs. Sasquatch gives you the power to reduce or even prevent these occurrences and prolongs the life of wellhead equipment by enabling detection of fast plungers long before they cause problems.

PRODUCT DETAILS:

ETC Sasquatch Plunger Velocity Sensor (ET-11000-1030-0000): Sasquatch expands on the functionality of the Cyclops Plunger Arrival Sensor by adding the ability to detect the velocity of the plunger at surface as it enters the lubricator. Features adjustable sensitivity, a digitally controlled output signal that is held for a minimum of 5 seconds, upgradable firmware, and real time data visualization using Vision Device Management. Includes two (2) pluggable connectors and two (2) quick release hose clamps.
