Vortex Single Pin Connector and Boot Kits

High Pressure/High Temperature

The Vortex Series single-pin connector and boot kits deliver the high reliability required to transmit and receive critical data and power within the Oil & Gas industry. Specifically designed for MWD, LWD and wireline applications, the Vortex Series incorporates glass-to-metal technology with premium materials including high strength metal alloys, heavy duty polymers and sealing components fabricated from high end elastomeric materials, to construct hermetically-sealed, pressure-rated connectors.

Features & Benefits

Failure of the tool electronics package is the primary cause of rig downtime resulting in reduced productivity and increased costs. The Vortex Series provides a superior solution for protecting critical electronic assets from damage. The boot kit hyperboloid socket provides continuous contact with the single-pin connector ensuring stable, minimal contact resistance addressing industry demands for superior signal integrity, longer battery life, deeper drilling depths
and higher drilling speeds.

Delivering clear, uninterrupted and accurate data, the Vortex Series combats the extreme challenges customers face, enabling exploration of demanding geographies and geologies not accessible with industry standard products.
