The Measurement Systems division of Cameron (www.c-a-m.com) has acquired a range of products and the intellectual assets of PRIME Measurement Products (www.prime-measurement.com). According to Cameron, the deal is designed to strengthen its technical capability and secure deliveries on key components.

As a result of the acquisition, Cameron adds PRIME”s differential-pressure (DP) sensing technology to its product line. DP technology is core to a significant portion of Cameron Measurement Products” current mechanical product portfolio.

In 2003, NuFlo Measurement Systems (which became Cameron’s Measurement Systems division in 2007) acquired the BARTON brand and the oil and gas assets of Barton Instrument Systems, LLC. The process control assets were “spun off”
to create PRIME, which continued under contract to Cameron to manufacture the Differential Pressure Units (DPUs) used in BARTON chart recorders, pneumatic controllers, switches and indicators. Now the two instrumentation groups that once operated under the Barton brand will be rejoined as part of Cameron.
