Oil & Gas

Protect your valuable assets

United Electric Controls’ pressure & temperature switches, sensors, gas detector and transmitters are designed to protect your valuable oil & gas assets, withstanding the toughest environmental conditions and industry challenges.

From offshore platforms and subsea wellheads to onshore drilling rigs, refineries and pipelines, UE has developed highly dependable and accurate instrumentation compliant to many worldwide approvals and standards. Supported by a global distribution network, UE can deliver products where and when you need them, helping to keep your process online and your workers and environment safe. For further information read our Oil & Gas Overview.


Whether you are involved in a conventional or unconventional oil & gas play, UE understands the importance of reliable pressure and temperature sensing devices for well automation and optimization. Rugged 316 stainless steel pressure transmitters monitor tubing and casing pressures while stainless steel RTD’s with a Teflon coating protecting against moisture, monitor gas line temperatures. UE’s unique Sensor Box allows service personnel to build an emergency thermocouple or RTD in minutes minimizing process downtime!

  • Monitoring tubing & casing pressures
  • CO2 injection skids
  • Input to RTU’s & SCADA systems
  • BOP accumulator systems
  • Top drive systems


The offshore environment brings unique challenges, whether the Gulf of Mexico or the North Sea – which is why UE has designed compact, all welded, hermetically sealed 316 stainless steel pressure switches and transmitters specific to panel mounting. Resisting salt spray and humidity, these compact cylindrical designs maximize your panel space while monitoring and controlling critical off offshore functions like high pressure wellhead monitoring and controlling subsea valves.

  • Emergency shutdown & safety monitoring
  • Line pressure & hydraulic monitoring
  • Instrument panels
  • Fire suppression systems
  • Sub-sea valve monitoring

Natural Gas

Production, refining, or transport of natural gas requires reliable field instrumentation for both safety and for maximum capitalization of your process. UE’s accurate electronic pressure switch protects your equipment with local switching, reduces field maintenance through self-diagnostics, and provides remote monitoring through a 4-20 mA output. A dual containment pressure switch prevents flammable or combustible process fluids or gases from entering the electrical system

  • Pipeline compressor stations
  • Flare gas recovery
  • Input to RTU’s & SCADA Systems
  • Metering run
  • Gas flow monitoring

Liquid Pipeline

UE electronic and electro-mechanical pressure and temperature switches and sensors are protecting pumps and compressors, as well as providing flow line monitoring on thousands of miles of pipeline. Tough, field-proven designs supervise unmanned pipelines and stations to prove flow, detect leaks and monitor lubrication oil. Electronic switches with 4-20 mA output also retransmit the process variable to control station personnel. Local display capabilities provide programmable field adjustments, switch status and fault detection.

  • Pump monitoring & protection
  • Flow line manifold monitoring
  • Oil/Gas separator systems
  • Input to RTU’s & SCADA systems
  • Line heater control
