Rising pipe – Monitoring tension

Position measurement ensures intelligent leveling and tension maintenance

The solution

The task of wave compensation cylinders is to maintain the specified tension of the drill string and compensate wave movements. To do so, the hydraulic cylinders are attached between the drill string and the rig. Equipped with our BTL magnetostrictive linear position sensors, these intelligent hydraulics level movements and guarantee the necessary tension of the riser pipe. No matter how much the floating oil rig is currently rocking.
