Flexible systems deliver advanced results for Oilfield Services Company
06 January 2012
Applied Weighing has provided a flexible weighing system for an Oilfield Services Company that manufactures process equipment, developing a reputation for its high quality and technically advanced weighing solutions for hazardous areas.
Applied Weighing supplied three sets of Safemount loading assemblies to the Oilfield Services Company
Prior to final assembly and shipping its equipment to site, the client needed to perform tests at its manufacturing facility in the North of Scotland. The process of oil well drilling involves an interconnection between a variety of complex systems and components. This connection places great emphasis on quality and the need for reliable products, given the harsh operating environment and the impact that a single component failure can have on the entire drilling operation.
Three systems formed part of a material recovery process and each system needed to be weighed and monitored separately, with the live weight data streamed to the Client's data recording software. Accordingly, the transfer rates through the process could be monitored in real time, allowing for the system to be proven.
With an ATEX option for hazardous areas, Applied Weighing supplied three sets of their Safemount loading assemblies, all with digital load cells which linked into a computer. The weight on each individual load cell, plus the total weight for each set of load cells was displayed on the computer screen. This data then streamed, with fast updates, to the data logging software.
