What is Computed Radiography?

What is Computed Radiography?

Radiography is divided into two major segments – conventional and digital. Digital radiography is an advanced radiography technique that has opened a world of possibilities. There are four major types of digital radiography which are discussed in another blog.  Here, we will discuss an overview of computed radiography. Computed Radiography…

Type of Drilling rigs used in Oil and gas industry

Type of Drilling rigs used in Oil and gas industry

The supply chain in the oil and gas industry is divided into three major segments – Upstream, midstream, and downstream. From the various activities conducted, drilling is a significant activity. Drilling activities are efficiently carried out using drilling rigs. A Drilling Rig is an equipment used to create holes or wells in the earth’s surface.

Drilling rigs are selected based on the requirements of the drill site. Rigs are generally categorized as onshore(land) and offshore(marine). You must know this topic in detail as it is an integral part of the oil and gas training courses online.

Onshore drilling rigs are structures made up of prefabricated sections that can be displaced onto the location by truck, barge, helicopter, etc.

Type of penetrants in Dye Penetrant Test

Type of penetrants in Dye Penetrant Test

Dye penetrant test is a type of visual inspection for the detection of surface flaws and discontinuities. In one of the earlier blogs, we discussed the various processes and materials involved in the test.
We all know that penetrants are the key detecting elements that help in successful flaw detection. Here, we will discuss the type of penetrants used in dye penetrant tests.

This is an essential topic in the oil and gas courses for mechanical engineers.
