UK: Smar to supply Ekofisk

Smar, through its Norwegian representative Autek, will supply more than 400 pressure and temperature transmitters to the Ekofisk 2/4M offshore platform in the North Sea, operated by ConocoPhillips. "Since 1997 Smar has been supplying equipment (gauge and differential pressure transmitters with remote seals or manifolds, temperature transmitters, etc) in various successful applications for Ekofisk oil and gas platforms", said Geir Falkevik, Sales Manager at Autek. For offshore platforms such as Ekofisk, Smar produces transmitters with mechanical specifications to prevent marine corrosion, which include 316 stainless steel housing, stainless steel bolts/nuts, flanges in super duplex, diaphragms in Hastelloy and special stainless steel armour for the remote seals. Advanced diagnostic and programmable control features such as PID, flow calculation and totalisation, temperature compensation, 16-point linearisation and configuration in engineering units also compose Smar transmitters. Using the PID included in these transmitters, ConocoPhillips will be able to save extensively in start-up and commissioning because the loop can be tested in the field before connecting to the general control system.
