Limit Switches

Mud Line Return

U. Mud Line Return

X

Monitoring pressure of drilling mud as it comes back up out of wellbore hole; information from pressure levels are used to monitor and control mud flow

Wing Union Pressure Sensors

Mud Shaker

V. Mud Shaker

X

Switches are used in the mud shaker area for position sensing or on/off applications. Hazardous location models are recommended, due to the potential volatility in the gases and chemicals found in the mud media mixture or drill cuttings brought up by the drill bit.

Limit Switches

Mud Cleaners

W. Mud Cleaners

X

Switches are used in the mud cleaner area for position sensing or on/off applications. Hazardous location models are recommended, due to the potential volatility in the gases and chemicals found in the mud media mixture or drill cuttings brought up by the drill bit

Limit Switches

Mud Pump

Y. Mud Pump

X

Measures the pressure of the mud media being fed downhole to the drill bit and the returning mud media with drilling cuttings up from the hole

Wing Union Pressure Sensors

Pushbutton switches on the mud pumping equipment may be used for on/off applications or emergency start/stop applications

Wireless Pushbutton

Limit switches on the mud pump may be used for mud pump stroke counts, position sensing or on/off applications

Limit Switches

Triple Stand Winch (or Winch) Triple Stand Winch (or Winch)

Z. Winch

X

Direct and indirect load measurements on the winches and cables used to position drill pipe or downhole tools, raise or lower the deck floor, or on the mooring lines

Canister Style Load Cells

BOP (Blowout Preventer)

AB. BOP (Blowout Preventor)

X

Monitor RAM position on the surface with hydraulic volumetric measurement or pressure behind the piston ("pinch offs")
