NewTek noncontacting LVDT position sensors provide reliable and accurate measurement in downhole drilling applications

Published by
Oilfield Technology,


NewTek Sensor Solutions offers standard and custom LVDT Position Sensors that operate with excellent reliability and infinite resolution in the high-pressure and high-temperature environments of downhole drilling applications.

Robust, rugged, and friction-free, NewTek LVDTs ensure accurate position feedback for the oil and gas industry to avoid costly downtime associated with failing sensors. Linear position sensors from NewTek are ideal for use in a variety of downhole applications including cutter orientation to ensure accurate drilling direction, wellbore case profiling for active predictive maintenance as well as wire and cable line tension measurement.

Addressing the extreme temperatures and pressures present in drilling environments, NewTek LVDTs are constructed with special materials that ensure reliable operation in temperatures up to 400°F (204°C) and pressures to 20 000 psi (1380 bar). Hermetically-sealed LVDTs withstand exposure to a variety of fluids including sulfides, acids, drilling mud, and other corrosive chemicals. In the most demanding environments, linear position sensors constructed of exotic electrical materials, ceramics and special core materials meet temperature requirements up to 1000°F (538°C).
