Latest company case about Application of slip ring in petroleum exploration

In the field of oil exploration, slip ring technology is widely used to solve the problem of power, signal and data transmission between rotating equipment and sensors.


In the oil drilling process, the drill bit and drilling equipment need to constantly rotate and sink, and need to transmit power and control signals. Slip rings allow power and data lines to pass through rotating parts, ensuring continuous equipment operation and allowing operators to monitor and control the drilling process. During this process, logging tools are usually lowered into the well to gather data about the subsurface rock formation. These tools include sensors, measuring instruments and communication equipment, which need to be connected to the ground control center. The slip ring helps transmit data and power, ensuring that data from the logging tool is accurately transmitted back to the surface.


On the other hand, drilling equipment and related equipment on oil platforms require regular maintenance and overhaul. In this regard, slip rings are used in power tools such as electric wrenches and electric winches to provide power and control signals to make maintenance work more efficient and safe.

In the development of deep-sea oil fields, slip ring technology is very important. It requires the transfer of power, signals and data between subsea devices, pipelines and sensors to support remote monitoring, control and data acquisition. In addition, some oil exploration equipment, such as platform rotating mechanisms, natural gas compressors, etc., require continuous rotation to complete their work. Slip rings ensure that the power supply is continuously transmitted to maintain the normal operation of these devices.


All in all, slip ring technologies play a key role in oil exploration by allowing power, signals and data to be transmitted between rotating equipment and sensors to support safe and efficient exploration and production operations. These applications help ensure reliability, safety and productivity in the oil industry. The FGCK-P155-2K12, developed by JINPAT for oil exploration applications, enables equipment to operate safely and continuously by stably running power and data lines through rotating components in deep water environments with high pressure and humidity.
