Description

Centek is based in Newton Abbot, Devon, where it designs, manufactures and tests equipment for the Oil and Gas industry. Their main focus is the manufacture and development of bow spring Centralisers. These centralisers are used to retain steel casing pipes centrally within the drilled bore hole of both on-shore and off-shore rigs and so allow good cementing operations. A good cement job,  provides zonal isolation of the oil and gas preventing the sort of uncontrolled escape that led to the Deep-water horizon disaster. Founded in 2001, Centek specializes in the development of engineering solutions for the world’s toughest casing running environments. Their focus has always been to reduce risk and rig time by designing and manufacturing a range of revolutionary bow spring centralizers which provide unprecedented performance down hole. For example Centek’s one piece centralizer unit is revolutionary in design. Unlike conventional bow spring centralizers our products provide the stand-off and flexibility as well as performance integrity. Our centralizers are made to gauge offering zero start and running forces and helping to reduce torque and drag, whilst aiding pipe rotation. At the same time the units have high restoring forces giving excellent stand-off in even the most challenging conditions.

 

From controlling the condition of the incoming material, through accurate laser cutting of blanks, rigid control of manufacturing pressing and bulging operations and with the largest heat treatment plant of its type in Europe, Centek have sought to optimize the processing required. The production facilities in the UK (and its sister plant in the US) are run using lean manufacturing principles and with an unwavering focus on repeatability. We undertake the most rigorous quality control within the industry ensuring we have full traceability.
