A hard hat might be a torment to wear for a considerable lot of you, however we need to wear them in risky working environment situations. Yes, you may believe it's excessively hot, making it impossible to wear, or that it's an aggravation since it might fall off, yet it's a fundamental piece of your protective gear. Everyone wears them. Righands wear them, toolpushers wear them, drilling rig services specialists wear them, and in environment where you're hurt your head, you need to wear one.
A hard hat is a head covering that shields the worker's head from any work-related objects that may fall or from other head injuries associated with the work environment. It is a part of all personal protective equipment and, by and large, weight 14 ounces. A hard hat are made up of two pieces; the external shell and the strapping. The external shell can be made of an assortment of materials, typically some type of non-conductive thermoplastic, similar to polyethylene or polycarbonate. The second part, the strapping, is made of portions of nylon webbing that are woven and shaped groups of HDPE, vinyl, or nylon. This material with a strap suspension is flexible for a custom fit.
Hard hats are classified in two sorts: I and II. Sort I are made to shields the highest point of the head from any falling items. Sort II shields the wearer from any blows, the back of the head and in addition the side and top of the head.
Normal examination is indispensable to keeping your hard hat in good order.
First Time Inspection
Before you utilize your hard hat, ensure that you have the correct sort and class for your employment. Make certain to collect your hard hat according to the manufacturer’s recommended guidelines. When you have your hat assembled, modify the strapping for a good fit, guaranteeing that it is comfortable yet not very tight. Your hat ought to be sufficiently tight to keep stay on your head without slipping or chafing your skin.
Every time you utilize your hard hat, you should examine it. Search for any splits in the external covering. Any splits, gouges or chipping can be dangerous on the off chance that you get knocked on the hat. Any wear, for example, crazing, splits or chalking, can bring about the hat to break when hit, slammed, or thumped. Inspect the strapping to guarantee that they are not frayed and that the hat fits snuggly on your head. All attachments of the suspension ought to be appropriately fitted into the appropriate openings.
Cleaning and Maintenance
Utilizing a gentle cleanser and some warm water is best to keep your hard hat clean. Utilizing harsher or rougher cleaners could deface the surface, which can damage the shell and/or strapping. Be mindful to Store your hard hat far from anything that can harm it and shield it from dirt. Direct daylight and extreme warmth can hurt the external shell and cause the strapping to disintegrate after some time.
Contingent upon how and when you wear your hat will decide when you will need to replace it. Most manufacturers have particular guidelines explaining when you should replace your hard hat. The manufacture provides the date it was built that is molded into the shell. The normal lifetime for a hard hat is 2 to 5 years, contingent upon use and manufacturer’s suggested specifications. Lastly, if your hat indicates wear or on the off chance that it's taken a blow, then it is best to get a new one.
Wearing a hard had can spare your life, however in the event that you wear it inappropriately, you could cause a great deal of damage to your head. Follow these steps to correctly wear your hard hat.
A hard hat is a fundamental piece of your own protection equipment. It shields your head from knocks and thumps. Furthermore, it will keep you safe around low-hanging hardware and from falling items. Wearing your hat might be a torment to a significant number of you, however it will keep your most essential resource, your head safe. So whenever you're preparing for work, keep in mind to assess your hat to protect your head.
Hydraulic hoses are composed not to spill, but rather shockingly, with typical wear and tear, they may. The best be safe around hydraulic hoses and hydraulic fluid is with consistent examinations and upkeep. So how would you keep yourself safe around hydraulic hoses? Keep reading to find out how to keep yourself safe when utilizing hydraulic hoses.
Hydraulic hoses are an indispensable piece of numerous drilling rigs, and they are intended to transmit power the length of a given hydraulic system. As the force is transmitted through the hose, almost no force will be lost, making hydraulic hoses an advantage to measuring pressure on a rig. Since they twist, fit in tight spaces and can be stretched across vast distances, hydraulic hoses are an indispensable addition to any drilling rig.
Hydraulic hoses have three fundamental parts, internal tube, strengthened second layer, and defensive external layer. They can shred with ordinary wear and tear, causing hydraulic liquid to spill out of central tubing. Scrapes can results from the hose being flexed, bent, wrinkled, extended or squashed. Also, when a connection is fitted improperly, a hydraulic hose can leak, making the entire measurement system less accurate. What's more, after some time, if seals or threads wear, liquid can be discharged at the fittings.
Regular inspection and maintenance is needed to prevent hose leaks. Always follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for routine inspections and maintenance protocols.
General Inspection - Always utilize the best hose length and width to avoid abrasions and cuts. Make certain to appropriately mount hoses with the right ties and hangers, and check external coating for scraping where ties and hangers rub against the hose. Water can enter a worn outer hose layer, causing the metal inside to corrode. Once the protective metal is corroded, hydraulic liquid can leak from the inner tubing through the external defensive layers.
Appropriate Connections – Always make sure that connections fit properly and that:
The most ideal approach for finding a leak is to prevent it from happening. General upkeep and inspection are necessary to spot a potential area for a leak before it starts. Always follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for proper maintenance and repairs. In the event that a leak is discovered, it is advisable to drain the entire hydraulic system of hydraulic fluid before attempting repairs.
A Potential Leak in a Hose - If there seems, by all accounts, to be a break in the hose, then the most ideal approach to check it is to utilize a bit of cardboard or wood and run it along the suspected length of hose with the possible leak. The cardboard or wood will soak up the liquid, pinpointing area where the hole could possibly be. Since hydraulic liquid is hot and can burn your skin, it is never a wise move to use your bare or gloved hand to check for the fluid leaks. Indeed, even a pinpoint hole can tear skin.
A Potential Leak in the Connection - If the hydraulic fluid seems, by all accounts, to be originating from a connection, don't try to use a wrench to tighten the fitting. One additional turn could bring about a larger leak, if the fitting is over-tightened. Always drain hydraulic fluid before removing connection.
Hydraulic pressure systems effectively measure pressure on a rig. And, regular maintenance and inspection can avoid hydraulic liquid from leaking out of the system. When you work with hydraulic frameworks and you see a hole, make sure to report it. In the event that your occupation requires that your repair hydraulic holes, make sure to do it appropriately and securely. In doing as such, you will counteract conceivable wounds and keep up a sheltered workplace for all.
Drilling Waste Management is a necessary work in the oil & gas drilling industry. In this article, we will introduce the typical treatment solution with the drilling waste from GN.
As the top leader that has been only focusing on the solids control & drilling waste management almost 10 year, GN accumulates too much experience with the DWM.
For the oil-based drilling waste, the recommended typical treatment solution from GN is: Vertical cuttings dryer + Decanter Centrifuge.
The 1st-stage is to use the dryer and realize the solid-phase & liquid-phase separation; Then the 2nd-stage is to use the centrifuge to make the further separation with the liquid-phase gotten from the 1st-stage. And by the centrifuge’s high speed rotation, the very fine solid particles (usually over 2-5μm) in the liquid-phase will be further separated out and get the more cleaner liquid can be gotten. The cleaner liquid will be recycled.
As proved by practice, the vertical cuttings dryer has good effect with the oil-based waste, but the High-G shaker has a better effect with the water-based waste. So for the water-based drilling waste, the recommended typical treatment solution from GN is: High-G shaker + Decanter Centrifuge
The 1st-stage is to use the High-G shaker, the drilling waste will be further dryer and liquid-phase will be collected. Then the collected liquid-phase will go into the centrifuge and be further treated as above.
After finishing the treatment as above with the drilling waste, the final collected liquid-phase (water, oil) will be recycled and used, so how about the further dried drilling waste?
Usually they will be mixed with some other materials to finally make up the construction materials like the bricks, etc.
Finally, Welcome to contact us for any need about the equipments or system, GN can make the customized solution for you.

A Crown 4:1 pressure sensor debooster is used in a hydraulic system to sense pressure and transmit this pressure to a hydraulic pressure gauge. This sensor consists of a 4:1 debooster housing, 4:1 piston, debooster cap, check valve, hex stainless steel cross, and diaphragm separator (CD401)and 1502 union.
As the pressure is transmitted through the hydraulic hose on the outer side of the debooster, it is 4 times stronger than after it passes through the debooster. The deboosters housing is engineered to reduce the pressure at a ratio of 4:1 and works with a rubber diaphragm to achieve this reduction. As the hydraulic fluid enters the debooster, it fills the chamber and the pressure is lessened. For example, if the pressure is 16,000 PSI on the drilling side of the debooster, it will be 4,000 PSI on the gauge side of the system.
All Crown pressure sensors are engineered to withstand the harshest oilfield conditions. A debooster will protect the sensitive gauge internals from harsh drilling fluids. Because the Bourdon tube and linkage assembly are the most sensitive part of the gauge, they must be protected and a debooster does just that. The second advantage to using a debooster is that it reduces high pressure to a lower pressure, protecting workers. High pressure hoses are subject to intense pressures, especially in fracking and cementing situations. By reducing line pressure, workers are protected from a possible hose leak or blow out. Third, high pressure hoses are expensive, and a debooster can lessen the cost of operations because it requires lower pressure hoses to transmit pressure to the gauge. Fourth, hydraulic systems are easy to repair in the field, which ensures long, dependable use. Finally, deboosters, because they are hydraulic systems, do not require electricity to operate. When electrical components are unavailable or when an economical option is needed, a debooster is the best choice.
4:1 Deboosters are available in a variety of pressures and durable and dependable in the harshest conditions.
Torque, measured in foot/pounds, is a force that twists an object that causes rotational motion. When torque is applied to oilfield tubulars, that force needs to be measured in order to avoid twist offs. Using a tong torque gauge will assist the driller in determining the max torque needed to make up and break out the drill string.
Crown Oilfield Instrumentation offers a complete line of tong line pull and tong torque systems for use with manual and hydraulic oilfield tongs. Tong torque systems are used with manual or electric tongs when the handle length is known and is not changed. Unlike tong line pull systems, tong torque systems are not universal, meaning not interchangeable with a variety of tong handle lengths. These systems measure the foot pounds of force that are applied to a compression or tension load cell and transmit that information via a hydraulic hose to the gauge. These gauges, either available in box or panel mount, are located on the driller's console.
In order to select the right tong torque system, the following information is needed to be sure that you have the best system for your application. First, you'll need to know if you'll be using these gauges with a manual or electric system and if you'll be using a tension or compression load cell. Second, you'll need to know the max capacity that will be measured. Gauges, like car tachometers, work best at 3/4 scale or less. Think of the red zone on the tachometer that measures the working speed of your car's motor. Hydraulic gauges work best below three quarters of scale, just like your car's motor. So, if you know max torque then you can use a gauge within the 3/4 scale tolerance and be able to measure any extreme values above tolerance. Next, the handle length is needed to calibrate the gauge and select the proper load cell. The whole system is calibrated based on the max torque and the handle length of the tong in our factory so that the driller does not have to do so. All of these parts of the system, gauge, load cell, and hose, work together to show the driller what foot/pounds of torque are being applied to the oilfield tubulars that he his working with.
Tong Torque gauges are built to last and stand up to the harshest industry conditions. Because these gauges are fluid-filled, they resist fluctuations and vibrations that result in day to day rig operations. With a target pointer attached to the gauge glass, the driller can easily see at a glance when max torque is being achieved. These gauges, along with the complete system, are easy to repair in the field, offering a lifetime of dependable use in the field.
Our Mississippian Lime wells have been costly to drill sometimes taking up to 70 days. We have to make short trips and extra reamer runs to smooth the hole. Not many companies ream while drilling in the Miss Lime but I think it may save some some time and money. What are your thoughts? thanks
A first for Thailand: Buying property with a 20-year visa
In what is the first initiative of its kind in Thailand, one property developer has joined forces with Thailand Elite to offer a 20-year visa for purchases at its Pattaya condominium.
Purchasers at Kingdom Property’s Pattaya Southpoint development will be entitled to a 20-year visa, which amounts to five-year multiple-entry visa that is renewable every four years.
The visa will entitle its holders to benefits that include fast-track immigration clearance, assistance with driving licences, discounts and a bilingual helpline.
Nigel Cornick, Chief Executive Officer of Kingdom Property (pictured), said: “The long-stay solution will overcome many of the barriers that we see when selling our properties overseas. Generally unless you have a business visa, retirement visa or marriage visa, you are not permitted to stay for any length of time.
“This exciting partnership is akin to Malaysia’s My Second Home (MM2H) program and has massive potential.”
The visa will come as part of the purchase of a unit at Southpoint and the owner can sell the unit and the visa together, if he or she so wishes.
“The target demographic for this initiative is very wide,” added Cornick.
