Applications for the oil & gas industry

Vacuum Contactor Applications in Pump Motor Startiing and Control in the Oil & Gas Industry

Employees in the Oil and Gas industry face the risk of fire and deadly explosions in oil rigs, refineries, gas pumping stations, pipelines, and other harsh sectors. One tiny spark can ignite flammable vapors or gases and lead to catastrophe and destroy everything nearby.

Joslyn Clark designs vacuum contactors so that the vacuum chamber seals the interrupter and is impervious to gases, dirt, and other contaminants. Additionally, vacuum contactors are critical to pump and compressor motor control in the oil and gas industry due to their ability to contain and quickly extinguish the electrical arc that occurs during motor switching. This makes them ideal is motor starting and switching applications in plants, refineries, pumping stations, transportation and pipelines.

Machine builders and operators for the oil and gas industry depend on Joslyn Clark vacuum contactors as a safe and dependable motor starting and power supply solution with a small footprint and proven reliability.
