Pneumatic instruments of all types are used throughout the oil and gas industry to perform the necessary functions which enable the production, processing, transfer and refining of petroleum products. Instrumentation is used to take measurements and control processes typically by sending a signal to a valve to adjust its position based on changes in the process conditions. Controllers can be used to control the process based on pressure, temperature, flow or liquid level. Because of the simplicity and reliability of pneumatic instrumentation as well as the lack of available electricity in many locations, pneumatic instrumentation has become the standard in the industry.
