Master class with OAO Rostovoblgaz in Volgodonsk, April 2011.
14 April, 2011 a seminar-master class on the subject: “Drilling equipment and modern production technologies” was carried out on the base of the drilling equipment plant OOO NPK Gidrofob RSM.
Representatives of 10 branches of Rostovoblgaz from cities and regions of Rostov Region – Semikarakorsk, Belaya Kalitva, Rodionovo- Nesvitayskaya, Veshenskaya, Orlovskaya, Gukovo, Salsk, Zernograd, Donetsk and Millerovo – participated in the seminar.
During the seminar the participants saw the equipment produced by the OOO NPK Gidrofob RSM – UGB-2; UGNB-3M4; UGNB-4.
The participants of the seminar practically tried out the machine UGB-2; 10 such machines were bought by Rostovoblgaz for its branches.
During practical works a bore hole 12m length and 110mm in diameter was drilled. It took 1 hour and 10 minutes; off-path jogging was at most 10 centimeters. It took 4-6 working hours on the average to drill a bore hole 22-24m length and 160mm in diameter. The time depended on soil type.
The main advantages of UGB-2 are the following:
- mobility and transportability;
- easy in operation and technical service;
- no need in consumables;
- low cost of works;
- deployment speed from knocked-down condition to ready-to-run condition is at most 20 minutes.
At the end of the seminar the final meeting was carried out where the NPK Gidrofob RSM and Rostovoblgaz collaboration was reckoned up and a course of the further collaboration and interaction was discussed.
