IntelliPower focus on Oil & Gas Industry

by | Apr 26, 2024 | Ametek-Intellipower, Industrial, Press release

The current combination of global geopolitical tensions and the need for affordable energy—coupled with ever-increasing requirements for products like plastics derived from fossil fuels—is driving the demand for increased oil and gas production in many countries worldwide.

When it comes to mission-critical and safety-critical applications in hostile environments like oil and gas production facilities, where the loss of power can easily result in millions of dollars of lost production and may potentially involve injury and loss of life, failure is simply not an option.

AMETEK IntelliPower has decades of experience creating Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) systems for use in the Oil and Gas industry. Our UPS offerings apply to every segment of the industry, from upstream (exploration and production of crude oil and natural gas) to midstream (transportation and storage, including pipelines, pumping stations, tank trucks, rail tank cars, transcontinental tankers, and other infrastructure) to downstream (everything associated with refining crude oil into fuels such as gasoline, kerosene, heating oils, jet fuels, etc.; and also transforming crude oil and natural gas into end products like plastics, synthetic rubbers, fertilizers, and preservatives).

Every product in IntelliPower’ s UPS portfolio is designed to be rugged from the ground up. It features an online (a.k.a. double conversion) topology in which incoming AC power is first converted to DC and then regenerated back to AC, protecting against “dirty power” in the form of spikes, dips, surges, transients, and unwanted harmonics, thereby ensuring uninterrupted power to the load during fluctuations in the AC supply or complete loss of the AC supply.

IntelliPower’ s UPS offerings include the following:

RUGGED UPS FA00001: Global input, online (double conversion) rugged UPS and isolated power conditioning system with frequency conversion, automatic input voltage detection and selection, power factor correction, front panel hot swap battery, and SNMP communications, all in a 1U rack-mount enclosure.

RUGGED UPS FA00007: High temperature, online (double conversion), rugged, isolated, rack-mounted UPS system with power factor correction ideal for deep sea oil rig and transcontinental tankers applications.

RUGGED UPS FA00010: 3KVA, 2.1KW online (double conversion), isolated, global input, rugged UPS with 120vac output, frequency conversion, power factor correction, and extended internal batteries for demanding, power-intensive oil and gas applications.

Complementing our UPS offerings, IntelliPower also has an extensive portfolio of Power Conditioners, Frequency Converters, Power Distribution Units, External Battery Modules, and External Battery Chargers.

Rugged UPS systems from IntelliPower are used in mission-critical and safety-critical Oil and Gas applications worldwide. Irrespective of the target application, the “gold standards” for ruggedness in the form of shock, vibration, EMI/EMC, and environmental conditions (low pressure (altitude), temperature, humidity, sand/dust, etc.) are standards like MIL-STD-461, MIL-STD-810, and MIL-STD-901. IntelliPower’ s UPS systems conform to these standards.
