Innovative breakthrough in UHF RFID tag design ensures the tag can withstand the continuous high temperature & high pressure operations of oil and gas downhole drilling and sub-sea operation

New Xerafy Xplorer Tag

Xerafy today announced the introduction of Xplorer, the world’s first ultra-high frequency (UHF), ATEX-certified RFID tag for downhole pipe identification in the oil & gas industry. Xplorer was developed with oil & gas companies and will revolutionize the way pipes are identified during drilling operations by providing real-time access to accurate information, which will enable greater efficiency and improved asset utilization at drilling sites.

Xerafy's Xplorer, the first tag of its kind, is a patent-pending, UHF design that does away with an RFID transponder inside a plastic housing. Instead, it is constructed with highstrength steel and Victrex® PEEK polymer, and is produced using advanced manufacturing techniques. Xplorer withstands sustained the high-temperature, high-pressure (HTHP) conditions, severe vibrations, chemical resistance and wear requirements of downhole environments where pressure reaches 30,000 psi, temperatures reach 200°C, and job sites often require various drilling mud and cement, H2S gas and all kinds of corrosive liquids.
