Acadiana Oldfield Instruments Mud Pump Pressure Indicator Systems

 Acadiana Oilfield Instruments is committed to providing total customer satisfaction by manufacturing and delivering high-quality products and unparalleled service.

With a broad line of instrumentation products and a dedicated staff of over 30 employees, the company was proving to be very successful. In 2005, SCF Partners approached Acadiana Oilfield Instruments with a proposition to purchase the fast-growing company. SCF acquired the company, and Acadiana Oilfield Instruments became part of Forum Oilfield Technology family, in the drilling division. Travis stayed employed with Forum as the General Manager of the instrumentation product line working for another 9 years before departing after 2015. Shortly thereafter, he elected to start up Acadiana Oilfield Instruments.

Acadiana Oilfield Instruments is located in Broussard Louisiana, and once again proving to be a fast-growing company, employing hardworking, dedicated, knowledgeable employees, all of whom have 20+ years’ experience in the instrumentation industry. Acadiana’s gauges and sensors are manufactured in house in the USA and are certified to NIST calibration standards. All applicable and critical products are manufactured in accordance with or surpassing API 6A standards, containing all design certifications, proof testing, and FEA’s (Finite Element Analysis).

Compound Pointer Pressure Gauge

Offering a 4 to 1 resolution for indicating the smallest pressure changes, Acadiana Oilfield Instruments' compound pointer pressure gauge system precisely measure and indicate pump pressures for several different operations including, acidizing oil pay, down-hole cementing and high-pressure hydraulic fracturing. This gauge system is comprised of a gauge protector, a 6" liquid filled pressure gauge, and a high-pressure hose.
