Drilling (Land & Off Shore)
Fluid Power Energy for Drilling (Land & Off Shore) Industries
The Drilling Industry utilizes many hydraulic and pneumatic circuits where fluid temperature control is mission critical for proper performance of the specific system. Cleanliness of the hydraulic fluid is also extremely important. As Drilling can occur in both OnShore
Our World still need to find new reserves of oil and gas to continue to power our societies and provide raw materials to produce equipment and goods whilst we transition to renewable forms of energy. The drilling industry utilize gas & diesel engines, compressors and high torque hydraulic motors to enable it to reach unprecedented on and off-shore depths to extract oil and gas.
Drilling sites utilise diesel and gas engines coupled with an alternator to form a genset to produce electricity. They are also be used as a prime mover to drive compressors, pumps, hydraulic motors, etc.
Temperature control valves are utilised on the cooling system to maintain optimum engine temperature and also on lubrication systems to ensure a consistent oil viscosity.
FPE’s Spin Clean centrifugal filter is incorporated on the lubrication circuit to extend oil life and change out intervals and ensure maximum up time.
FPE’s air shut off valves are incorporated into the air intake manifold of diesel engines where a combustible gas may be present that could cause rapid diesel engine runaway and explosion.
Drill sites utilise compressors to produce compressed air. FPE’s thermostatic valves are utilised to ensure optimum bearing lubrication and avoid water condensation when starting a screw compressor.
High torque hydraulic motors that are used to drive drills, winches, plant and hydraulic control systems utilise FPE’s thermostatic valves to control their oil temperatures and viscosity.
