Stress Engineering launches digital flex joint angle monitoring system
Published by Nicholas Woodroof,
The digital flex joint system uses the core technology of a real time fatigue monitoring system (RFMS) and subsea vibration data logger (SVDL) system; the technology has been leveraged and improved to determine quasi-static and dynamic lower and upper flex joint angles in real time. Data and power transmission are provided through the mux system; which is first successful system of its kind with minimal drift.
The development adds to the strength of SES’s present technology portfolio of asset-based surveillance systems together with SES’s predictive data analytics and IoT ecosystem to manage and assess client operations. The enhanced level of services provided by this system during drilling operations will vastly benefit those with a stake in identifying and managing risks and any asset deterioration due to key seating.
Kenneth Bhalla, Chief Technical Officer, SES, said, “We believe that growing our existing capabilities and offering practical solutions to our clients is critical to our success in the broad spectrum of markets in which we participate. The digital flex joint angle monitoring system is an innovative development that diversifies our product portfolio. We are excited to offer this capability to drilling contractors so they may enhance their surveillance during drilling operations, manage risk, ensure safety and maximise uptime with a positive impact on their operating expenses.”
