Eaton Solutions On Display at Offshore Technology Conference 2013
PITTSBURGH … Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton is delivering a broader portfolio of solutions to energize the oil and gas industry. Eaton solutions help end users, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and engineering, procurement and construction (EPCs) companies manage power more efficiently, effectively and safely. Eaton solutions, live product demonstrations and interactive application environments will be on display from May 6 – 9, 2013, at the Offshore Technology Conference, located in Houston, Texas.
“There is an increasing need for energy to fuel economic growth,” said Gardiner Henderson, Eaton segment director for oil and gas. “Eaton solutions are engineered to decrease risk in recovery and exploration in challenging settings, as well as help customers to navigate complex regulatory environments. With a broad product portfolio and industry-leading expertise, Eaton solutions are designed for efficiency and productivity onshore and offshore in upstream, midstream and downstream applications.”
The Cooper acquisition has significantly expanded the global scale of Eaton’s electrical business. The powerful combination of the two companies strengthens Eaton’s geographic footprint, expands market reach and provides a broad portfolio of products, services and solutions. Today, Eaton’s Crouse-Hinds Division supports the oil and gas industry with safety and hazardous area solutions that solve real-world problems the industry faces each day – enhancing personnel safety and protecting facilities across global operations.
Eaton systems and components help our customers manage the heavy power capabilities and safety systems needed to support exploration and production in remote locations and extreme environmental conditions, and enhance the performance of refining operations. Eaton solutions can be retrofitted in most existing facilities to extend the lifecycle and meet evolving global regulatory standards.
Eaton electrical and hydraulic solutions are designed to support reliable operations and lower cost of ownership. For example, Eaton variable frequency drives help to extend motor life and reduce energy requirements and costs; low speed high torque motors are suitable for harsh conditions; pump sand intelligent fluid hoses are designed to enhance uptime and responsiveness.
Eaton safety systems are engineered to enhance personnel safety, protect and enhance facilities and equipment in remote locations. To prevent arc flash events in high-risk environments, Eaton provides more than 55 industry-leading arc flash prevention solutions and an engineering services team with expertise in training and arc flash hazard analysis. Eaton’s Crouse-Hinds explosion-proof enclosures and hazardous area communications systems are designed to enhance personnel safety and protect facilities in harsh and hazardous environments.
Attendees can visit Eaton’s offshore and land-based drilling rig to see harsh and hazardous solutions, including light-emitting diode (LED) lighting, marine lighting, hazardous area communication and process control equipment, wireless solutions, cable management and support structures, and connectivity solutions.
