    Pressure Monitor Program with Large Channel Count

    This project involved the re-creation of a pressure monitoring program. One copy of the program was on a computer that crashed beyond salvage. The PLCs are nearly obsolete so older software was identified and downloaded. Two programs each monitor about 100 pressure transmitter values. The pressure transmitters are installed on a manifold that interfaces with a […]

    API 16A BOP Stripping Test Fixture, Make Existing Fixture Operational

    This scope of work dealt with a a fixture built in the 1977-1983 timeframe and repaired in 1993 and 2003. The fixture uses (3) 250 hp pumps and a servo valve to cycle a 14″ bore, 7″ rod, 86″ stroke hydraulic cylinder along a precise motion path to complete an API 16A BOP stripping test. The fixture lost some […]
