OBS Bow Spring Centralizer
The OBS single piece, bow spring centralizer has been developed for onshore vertical, horizontal or deviated wells with build rates of less than 10 degrees /100’ and horizontal sections less than 10,000 ft.
The OBS is designed to be robust in tough casing running environments.
The OBS unit is shorter compared to the premium Centek S2 but maintains a high restoring force to meet the needs of most well designs. Its single piece construction provides strength downhole, while the proprietary heat treatment process gives the bows flexibility.

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.
