It is a user-friendly well-head penetrator system with advanced features like crimp-free high voltage cable connections and BIW's QuickThread connector engagement.    
  • Tri-Lok® Wellhead Penetrator – For years, the Tri-Lok Wellhead Penetrator System has reliably delivered electricity downhole when concentric wellheads were installed. Now, the Tri-Lok surface connector is field attachable, allowing oil producers to connect to existing surface cable infrastructure. The system is suitable for use in hazardous locations and is rated to 300°F (149°C) and 5000 psi.
  • Uni-Lok™ Wellhead Penetrator – A highly affordable system for 300°F (149°C) and 5000 psi wellheads, Uni-Lok offers a true pressure block and retrofits to any surface cable. Uni-Lok delivers dependable safety at the wellhead without the costs associated with more complex systems.
  • Advanced Testing  – BIW is one of the first suppliers of electrical penetrator systems to offer electronically monitored, ultra-high temperature and pressure testing for improved product lifetimes. In October 2018, the company introduced its $1.5 million autoclave test chamber capable of testing up to 650oF (343oC) at 10,000 psi.
