DataCan is a design, engineering and manufacturing team that specializes in creating products for down-hole tool data collection solutions.
In 2006, DataCan was founded. DataCan first designed and produced quartz and piezo resistive memory pressure gauges. DataCan quickly became known as a worldwide supplier of innovative, high-performance, pressure and temperature recording devices and systems.
DataCan followed up these successful products with an autonomous, instant-close, multi-cycle, downhole shut-in tool and permanent monitoring systems.
