Obsolescence Issue Solved

Customer Issue

Major offshore operator contacted JWF requiring a high pressure (HP) solution based on a hub process connection for new and existing flowlines. 

Obsolescence of previous hub style pressure transmitters was the main issue facing the operator.



JWF conducted a review and offered an ABB 266HRH gauge pressure transmitter assembly integrated with a Hub connection.

The assembly was supplied with exotic wetted parts, both F51 duplex and F53/F55 super duplex.

This hub style transmitter has many advantages:

  • Compact design means space and weight saving
  • Calibrated range 0-1,050 barg
  • Overpressure protection > 2,000 barg
  • All welded design


JWF have supplied over 30 of these new assemblies to support obsolete instruments.

“By challenging material specifications we have enabled the operator to standardise and therefore reduce their inventory costs whilst maintaining offshore integrity” says Martin Kerlin.

The customer now has a future-proof solution allowing them to maintain their assets going forward.
