Oil Well Logging

In the search for new oil deposits and mapping their extent, a number of measurements are made down test bore holes and even while drilling a hole. Radiation from a radioactive source is scattered by the rock and detected by a photomultiplier and scintillator combination.

In these hostile environments it is essential to have appropriate high temperature electronics.

Sens-Tech is able to offer electronic designs which can withstand temperatures of up to 200°C and can survive the violent shocks and vibrations experienced while drilling.
