THE PASON ELECTRONIC CHOKE ACTUATOR
Designed to regulate the rate at which excess gas pressure is bled out of the manifold, the Pason Electronic Choke Actuator provides a means of remotely controlling the choke valve. Its exemplary service record sets a precedent for high reliability, low maintenance, and ease of installation. The Choke Actuator is lightweight and installs easily, using the rig’s standard 110 or 220 volt power supply.
- Fits easily in the cramped manifold shack due to its compact 18-inch design
- Lightweight control box can be wall-mounted in both the manifold shack and doghouse for added convenience
- Single electronic cable replaces cumbersome hydraulic lines and air hoses, thereby eliminating freezing and leaking problems
- Uses standard 110 or 220 volt power supply
- Ties directly into the Pason Electronic Drilling Recorder (EDR) that records choke positions alongside pump and casing pressures
- Virtually maintenance-free
- Proven dependability in critical well control situations
- Optional manual (no power) operation
- Actuator: Contains an electronic motor that opens and closes the choke valve. It is installed on the existing choke valve located in the manifold shack.
- Mounting bracket: Holds the electronic choke actuator to the existing choke valve body.
- Hex drive coupler: Attaches the electronic motor rotation to the existing choke valve.
- Casing sensor: Detects casing pressure and provides input to the Pason EDR.
- Control boxes: Opens and closes the choke valve and displays valve position. It is typically installed in the manifold shack and/or the driller's console.
- Cables: Connects the casing sensor, control boxes, and actuator together. They also connect to the Pason EDR Junction Box, if present.
