Pressure Switches – Your First Line of Defense

Argus Pressure Switches
Argus Pressure Switches

Pressure switches are your first line of defense at oil well sites. As a safety device for effective on/off well control, your pressure switches must be extremely durable and reliable.

Argus pressure switches are designed in accordance with NACE International, Canadian Standards Association (CSA), American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and Alberta Boilers Safety Association (ABSA) standards.

We were also the first in the industry to meet the Dual Seal certification compliance in 2007.
