Solutions for the Petrochemical Industry

Your indispensable partner

Innovative ideas. Customized solutions.

For over 70 years, Conax has been a leader in the design and manufacture of compression seal fittingstemperature sensors and cable and harness assemblies for a broad variety of applications and a wide range of industries. Our innovative designs span the upstream and downstream sectors of the petrochemical industry.

Conax is a leading source for thermocouple and RTD temperature sensors, compression seal fittings, instrument feedthroughs, retractable analyzer sample probes, retractable chemical injection quills and Class 1, Division 1 wire conduit seals. We have developed customized solutions for a number of highly specialized client challenges, including:

  • Ultra-high-pressure compression seal fittings with 65,000 PSI operating pressure rating.
  • Redundant seal assemblies for probes and instruments inserted into gas or liquid processes.
  • A temperature sensor assembly with an SASiC protection tube that can withstand extreme high temperatures and can be rotated 180° to double the life of the sensor.
  • Single and multiple bore split internal compression seal fittings to seal long, down-hole temperature sensors; the split internal design allows for the surface assembly at the well-head flange of the seal to fit over the installed sensor’s termination.

The ideas for our custom-designed solutions are the result of strong partnerships with our customers. We listen to your challenges and work with you to engineer the best solutions. Our comprehensive solutions have been applied to upstream exploration, extraction and R&D and to downstream refining, distribution and storage.

Sample Probe Assemblies

Conax Technologies’ Sample Probe Assemblies (SPA) are used to insert and retract an analyzer sample probe or injection quill into a pressurized process through a process isolation valve. Conax SPAs are designed for unique applications, including: process analysis, flare stack emissions, hot tapping liquid or gas streams, and more. Conax features include:

  • Plasma welded stop collar
  • Retaining Chain Kit
  • Wake frequency calculations
  • Various probe ends and valve types available

If you need engineering help to ensure you’re choosing the proper SPA for a specific application, we’ve created the Wake Frequency Solution Builder to generate immediate, online wake frequency calculations. This tool enables you to enter data for the specific SPA you need and receive immediate calculation results, based on ASME PTC 19.3 TW-2010 and/or IEC/TR 61831 standards. If there are problems with the configuration of your SPA, you’ll see exactly what needs to be adjusted. If the design is approved, you’ll see confirmation that each element tested has passed, and you can contact us to purchase the SPA.
