Test rig for Oil and Gas
This is a roto-dynamic project developed for our client from Oil and gas sector. This test system was used to determine the percentage of oil and water content in an emulsion, the efficiency of the results would be applied in oil and gas sectors. Origin played a decisive role in conceptualization and development of the test system. The manufacturing process involved turning operations, welding in critical areas by successfully eliminating any leakage determined through hydrostatic testing . The design process also involved determining the right type of bearings and oil seals as the system is coupled to a motor rotating at a high RPM.
The challenges were mainly involved in assembly as the test system was integrated at our client’s test site at a height of 30 feet and the vertical assembly meant handling several parts to be aligned precisely as per the test requirements and control any vibrations and keep the noise levels below set standards.
