Oil & Gas

Oil and Gas Industries Rely on TEGAM Instruments

The petroleum industry uses many types of TEGAM products throughout its complex functions and operations. Exploration, extraction, refinement, transportation, and distribution each have unique challenges that are addressed by TEGAM products.

Our test & measurement devices for Oil & Gas applications include:

  • Drilling rigs need to be properly grounded to prevent electrical discharges and lightning strikes from igniting crude oil and natural gas to disastrous results. The TEGAM R1L-E2A Intrinsically Safe Electrical Bond Meter and Microohmmeter is a test instrument that verifies that the ground link is secure. This needs to be checked at installation and periodically to maintain safety.
  • Performing sediment tests on petroleum samples requires precise temperature measurement to properly calculate the specific gravity. The 921B Intrinsically Safe Thermocouple Thermometer carries ATEX/UL/CSA certifications for use with flammables substances. Intrinsically safe temperature probes with fast response rates are also available in a combination that is unique to TEGAM.
  • Did you ever wonder if your gasoline pump is accurate? A standard method to determine accuracy is to pump a known quantity of gasoline and measure its temperature. Gasoline changes volume with a temperature 4.5 times more than water and the pump must be adjusted accordingly. A technician verifies that the gasoline pump delivers the purchased quantity within 0.3%. Again, the 921B is certified to measure the temperature of a container of gasoline without igniting it thanks to its intrinsically safe design.
  • Do you need to measure temperatures on a fueled aircraft? The 922B Intrinsically Safe Thermocouple Thermometer provides two channels of intrinsically safe temperature measurement for use anywhere on the airframe. The dual-channel function provides the differential capability to measure the temperature differences between inlet and outlet temperatures and exhaust and cabin climate control.

As a veritable "lifeblood" of transportation, industrial power, manufacturing, and commercial and residential heating & food preparation, oil & gas is an essential component of society today and TEGAM is proud to supply test & measuring instruments throughout the Petroleum industry that help to keep this lifeblood flowing.
