OBH-W Bow Spring Centralizer

OBH-W Bow Spring Centralizer

The OBH-W is a hinged, welded, bow spring centralizer designed with a new hinge that tests stronger than competitors.

The OBH-W hinged centralizer features heat-treated, spring-steel bows which are welded to rigid high strength end bands for optimized stand-off in less challenging wells.

The OBH-W utilizes Centek’s unique metallurgy and heat treat process allowing it to run in hole at gauge. No starting or running forces ease the casing to TD.

Tested to API 10D specification, the OBH-W centralizer consistently provides superior performance.

The integrated hinge has been developed for quick installation and with the axial load strength of our OBW non-hinged product.

It is designed for onshore, vertical and slightly deviated applications where an economic solution is preferred but performance is expected.

As with Centek’s other hinged products, the OBH-W can be nested on a pallet, taking up to 66% less space than its non-hinged counterpart. This can reduce transportation and storage costs by up to 30%. In addition, the unique integrated hinge ensures a quick installation process.

Performance ratings

Centralization and the ease of running casing is often a balance between strength and flexibility which combine to support, what we call, 'runability'. To help with product selection we've added a rating to all our products for flexibility, runability and inherent strength.
