IADC/SPE Drilling Conference and Exhibition 2012
RF System Lab showcased the VJ-Advance Video Borescope at the IADC/SPE Drilling Conference and Exhibition 2012. This year it was hosted in beautiful San Diego at the Town and Country Resort and Convention Center. Remote visual inspection was not a hot topic at this particular show, but it was still well received.
One of the first questions from everyone’s mouth who visited our booth was, “How long can the insertion tube get?” Likely because the main focus of this show was for down-hole projects. Many of the applications at a show like this take place thousands of feet underground. The answer is, with our scope the most length you will require for a typical application in drilling, is about 1.5 meters which is our shortest length. In the oil and gas industry, our 6.9mm borescope is most commonly used to inspect mud motors, stators and pc pumps before they’re put to down-hole work. In this case, it would definitely be a preventative maintenance tool. A Professional Quality Control person in this industry can use our tool to inspect the inside of this equipment and determine approximately how many hours of operation are left on the equipment. With this equipment, a breakdown at thousands of feet underground can cost thousands of dollars.
This was one of the smaller exhibitions that we’ve attended, but there were a very large number of attendee’s searching for ways to make their operations more effective and more efficient. Our booth stood out among the others because no one else had the type of products we had. Because of the large number of speakers at the conference, the exhibitors had a good chance to mingle and share ideas and technologies as well.
The staff at the Town and Country Resort and Convention Center were very attentive and helpful. RF System Lab had a very successful exhibition and will hopefully return to this show in the future.
