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.
Over the last few decades, overmolded cable assemblies have become the new standard in the industry, rendering conventional cable assemblies obsolete. But what are they? And what benefits do they offer? Let’s find out!
Drilling techniques used for the exploration, extraction, and production of oil and natural gas have evolved immensely since the nineteenth century.
There are several kinds of pressure gauges available in the market that assist drillers in the oil rigging process. Some of the common ones include the Single Pointer Pressure Gauge, Compound Pressure Gauge, and Roughneck Torque.
Proper maintenance of your drill rig equipment and systems is essential for maintaining their performance and maximizing useful life. This includes the hydraulic systems used in the rig. Regular maintenance can not only prevent breakdowns, but it can also cut down costs associated with hydraulic system failures; not to mention the many hours lost during […]
When it comes to the oil rig industry, hydraulic machines play an instrumental role in dictating the success or failure of a company. These devices follow Pascal’s principle and run using incompressible liquids as fluid instead of compressible gases.
A tong torque gauge is used to measure the amount of torque generated in foot-pounds per joint. They are available is a variety of scales, makes, and models and are used in the running of oilfield tubulars for precision checks.
