Solenoid valve for oil well completion tools

Solenoid valve for oil well completion tools Miniature component specialist Lee Products has developed a reduced diameter solenoid valve which will help oil tool designers meet the challenges of incorporating all the required components into the smallest space envelope. This new high pressure micro solenoid valve has a maximum outside diameter of 14mm and will be particularly beneficial in the design of completion tools for oil wells where all the components have to be fitted into an annulus of the tool.

Today, a large majority of completion and intervention tools are self-powered so they do not need electrical or hydraulic power to be transmitted from the surface down hole on an umbilical cable. The power source is usually a number of AA size batteries and designers have to be able to package these power sources into the component. This means designers really want a solenoid valve to be no larger in diameter than these batteries.

The combination of a reduced outside diameter with the largest possible inside diameter will enable operators to use a wider range of intervention tools, as well as increasing the flow rate of oil being produced. This new solenoid valve incorporates the innovative MultiSeal which simplifies the port layout and allows total porting flexibility around the seal.
