OBW Bow Spring Centralizer

OBW Bow Spring Centralizer

The OBW offers heat treated, spring steel bows which are welded to rigid high strength end bands for optimized stand-off in less challenging wells.

Centek’s unique metallurgy and heat treatment process allows the OBW to be run in hole with minimal start and running forces, whilst providing excellent strength and stand-off.

Designed to exceed the API 10D specification, the OBW centralizer consistently provides superior performance. It is designed for onshore, vertical and slightly deviated applications where an economic solution is preferred but performance is expected.
