Bonded foil strain gauges offer a unique combination of range, accuracy, and stability required in harsh environments common in the oil and gas industries.
Load and fatigue testing of pipelines and other infrastructural facilities
Electrical and optical strain gauges from HBM allow fatigue tests to be performed - during development and production as well as during use.
HBM technology also enables infrastructural facilities such as compressor stations to be monitored.
The use of torque transducers in gas compressor stations facilitates precise acquisition of the drive power. This is a major prerequisite for optimal control of the compressor stations with minimal use of energy.
Virtual fatigue and load tests using HBM nCode software
nCode simulation software from HBM helps to optimize product durability and enables fatigue life prediction during component design and development stage. nCode software also manages and enables sharing of service data from huge infrastructural facilities.
Using strain gauges to monitor stress on oil and gas pipelines helps prevent failure, but using them effectively and affordably requires highly skilled technicians. However, a new pipeline monitoring solution using fiber optic strain sensors offers enhanced ease of use.
