Analog pressure gauges are compact, simple instruments that are heavily used in the oil drilling industry. As the device is used to measure high pressures, it’s not uncommon for errors to occur. In fact, it’s one of the instruments that are most likely to experience calibration problems.
From planning processes to managing workers, there are many challenges that you will experience on a daily basis when you’re in the oil industry. One of the most difficult challenges that you can encounter is choosing the right instruments for processes. This is especially true when it comes to choosing pressure gauges.
The first tower crane was invented in the late 1940s, and it completely changed the landscape of the construction industry. It’s highly efficient machinery that enables the construction work to be performed at a very high altitude.
Pressure gauges are used all over the globe in industrial environments, particularly in the oil and gas drilling industry. In fact, pressure sensors are among the most heavily used instruments in oil drilling plants.
Oilfields have never been easy places to work in. Whether it was the 1980 capsizing of Alexander L. Kielland, a semi-submersible platform, which resulted in 123 deaths, or the 1988 oil rig disaster that ended the lives of 167 people, history is rife with such incidents.
If the first places that come to your mind when you think oil are the United States and the Middle East, think again. The world’s first integrated oil company was actually established in Canada! Since then, oil production in Ontario has been expanding steadily, and currently, we are the 7th largest crude oil producer in the world.
In 2016, 904 Canadian workers died in workplace related injuries and/or accidents. A sizable number of these fatalities tat took place on oilfields. In our neighbouring country, America, between 2008 and 2017, 1,566 workers died working on oil rigs.
Wherever there’s a need for water extraction, trash pumps are sure to make an appearance. Required for pumping massive amounts of water, trash pumps are essential items on oilfields.
A load cell is a device that’s used to calculate force or weight in a number of different applications. It can be used to measure bending compression, tension, or other forces. It serves as a transducer that converts force into an electrical signal.
Drilling rigs are massive structures that are designed to drill oil wells, water wells, or natural gas extraction wells. From hydraulic equipment to electronic equipment, there’s a broad range of oilfield instrumentation that’s required to conduct operations efficiently.
