Trelleborg to Showcase Expertise in Automated Fiber Placement Technology at SPE Offshore Europe

Trelleborg Sealing Solutions will showcase its expertise in advanced composites and Automated Fiber Placement (AFP) technology at the SPE Offshore Europe Conference and Exhibition, September 3-6 in Aberdeen, UK. AFP is an additive manufacturing method for creating advanced composite structures using continuous-fiber tape. AFP allows for a high degree of control over processing by monitoring speed, temperature and pressure throughout the tape-placement process. This results in a repeatable, out-of-autoclave manufacturing process that reduces manual labor and processing time, while opening the door for the creation of complex geometries that are otherwise difficult to produce. Advanced composi

Crowcon Launches Human-Machine Interface (HMI) to Provide a Complete Gas and Hazard Visibility Solut

Crowcon has developed an HMI solution that creates complete system visibility. The solution can run alongside existing DCS/SCADA/PLC systems or mimic panels which are used to monitor wider system views, often incorporating other sensors including security, flow, smoke and fire. Crowcon’s Product Manager William Allum explains, “This solution enables our customers to view data from multiple panels from one central screen. Due to the system having the ability to store alarm and event logs, users can quickly understand the symptoms of a problem as they view the information and identify the exact location. Vortex & Gasmaster HMI employs license activated software operated from a dedicated touchs

Reaching beyond its class – Seatronics Introduces VALOR ROV

Seatronics VALOR weighs in at less than 80kg in air yet offers the user flexibility and connectivity that would rarely be featured on an underwater vehicle of this size. VALOR’s intelligent control system enables the user to fully utilize the power available from the SPE75 thrusters. Given the user can accurately control the thrust it is not necessary to reduce the gains to ensure smooth and controlled operation. Power is distributed to the appropriate thruster on the platform via the syntonic control system. Working in a similar way to traction control on a car, the control system considers the vehicles attitude, surrounding environmental conditions and the specific position of the thruster

Flowhire Supply Endress + Hauser Coriolis and Vortex Flow Meters for a Pipeline Blowdown Operation i

As the world leaders in the rental of flow meters and flow measurement systems, Flowhire were recently approached by one of the world’s largest oil and gas service companies to assist with temporary flow measurement instrumentation for a blowdown operation on the Zohr Gas Field. The Zohr field is located in the Egyptian sector of the Mediterranean Sea and is estimated to lie in an area of 100 square kilometres (39 sq. mi) at a depth of 1,450 metres (4,760 ft). It was discovered in 2015 by the Italian energy company Eni and is the largest ever natural gas find in the Mediterranean Sea. The project will be large enough to satisfy a part of Egypt’s natural gas demand for decades to come. The ap

The New M2M Gekko™ Generation Officially Released

Launched in December 2013, the first Gekko generation has brought a wind of change to the NDT market by offering embedded real-time TFM in addition to beamforming phased array and conventional UT technology through a modern intuitive software interface. Built on the strength of its predecessor, the new Gekko generation benefits from the latest hardware evolution that includes a higher firepower and channel sensitivity, the longest battery autonomy in its class (up to 6 hours in normal use), a brighter resistive and sensitive touchscreen that can be used with gloves or under rough conditions. For data management, it comes with a 256 GB SSD and a new USB 3.0 connector allowing a high-speed fil
