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.
Oilfield tongs are large, self-locking wrenches that are used to spin pipes and, in some cases, apply the final makeup torque. There are two common tools that are used to measure the torque being applied to tongs—tong torque gauges and tong line pull gauges. Both perform the same task, but the process differs from one to the […]
Choosing the right components is extremely important if you want to ensure that your weighing system is providing an accurate output. However, there are several external factors and forces that affect the precision of your weighing system. Learning about them is crucial to guarantee accurate results.
Over the last few years, the appearance of cable assemblies has drastically changed, mainly due to the availability of new, overmolded variants. Not only do these have improved aesthetics, but they also improve functionality and enable better strain relief.
Previously, analog pressure gauge was a standard instrument to measure the pressure of liquids and gases of all kinds. It offered a multitude of advantages; they can measure rate changes in pressure up to 0.1 million pounds per sq. inch (70,000N per sq. cm.), can be viewed from extended distances, and don’t even require power […]
A load cell is a transducer that is primarily used to convert force into measurable electrical output. Being the most common type of force sensors, they are typically differentiated based on the way they detect weight or as per the type of output signal.
A drilling rig is a machine designed specifically to drill gas, oil and geothermal wells, hence it’s made of highly complex and durable components. One of the simplest yet highly useful and important oil rigging instruments is a weight indicator system.
