The PPS51 Short Memory Gauge is designed for applications with length limitations. The most common usage is for building this gauge into other downhole tools, such as water injection and plunger lift equipment. It is also used for general pressure surveys for gradient or build up tests. The gauge length is only 4.8 inches, including one half AA lithium battery pack. The same user-friendly SmartView software is used for programming, downloading and processing data.
The SmartView software has a very user friendly interface, so operators with minimal experience can feel confident running the gauges and retrieving data. Also once the gauge is programmed with the desired sampling rates and durations, jobs can be run consecutively without needing to reprogram the gauge, saving time onsite.
