ABERDEEN, UK – Rig Control Products (RCP) has introduced a new version of its Travelling Block Monitor (TBM) drill floor safety management system, following a six-month design and development program.
TBM is said to be an advanced electronic floor and crown saver system, designed to continually monitor travelling block parameters in order to calculate a safe working envelope for the blocks.
The system has been proven to avert serious equipment collisions on the drill floor, making it a safer environment for personnel to work, RCP claims, as well as providing time and cost savings associated with equipment incidents, downtime, and HSE investigations.
Based on feedback from its customers, RCP focused on extended operational longevity, a capacity for displaying and re-calling historical system data, and inbuilt diagnostics with condition-based monitoring, limiting the need for offshore technical assistance.
Ben Knight, managing director of RCP, said: “Operators and technical crew can monitor the system responses using a full color panel with a wide range of operating information available on screen. The system’s data logging capabilities can also monitor how efficiently it is being operated, making the new TBM virtually maintenance free.”
