Our staff has decades of experience designing and manufacturing products for oil field environments.
The Welbor team understands the importance of consistent, reliable performance of our products. They know that our customers depend on them to function in the most demanding environments, and that a failure can be extremely costly. Our culture revolves around shipping only products that are the best that we can make them.
Welbor's solenoid actuators are specifically designed for downhole and subsea
applications. Solenoids are customized for your design envelope, and
provide the best force and stroke distance for a given geometry. Whether a
new design or a drop-in replacement for an existing system, we build solenoids
with highest reliability and efficiency. Some reasons why you should consider
Welbor for your downhole or subsea actuators:
Our extensive experience with exotic magnetic materials helps us
select the best alloys for your design requirements. An alloy's magnetic
properties, machining properties, heat treat options, yield strengths,
weldability, plating options, and expansion and friction coefficients are all
part of the design considerations for a downhole or subsea actuator design.
Welbor uses proprietary epoxy compounds and a vacuum pressure
impregnation technique for stabilizing and protecting wound assemblies.
The cure schedule and expansion properties prevent cracking, and the epoxy's temperature
characteristics provide support while accommodating the thermal expansion of the
wire. The wound assembly can be potted into the solenoid or the bobbin can
be replaceable. The epoxy can be machined after cure to fit at assembly
Our magnetic modeling capability allows us to quickly evaluate the
feasibility of a specific design and predict the performance of the end product.
Welbor solenoid drive electronics increase the solenoid force
available from a given battery voltage and current.
