Since May, exploration platform No. 3 has actively carried out cost reduction and fee reduction proposals collection activities, and platform staff have offered suggestions, which has brought tangible economic benefits to the company. In order to reduce the maintenance cost, the mechanical engineer of the platform started the self-transformation of the important vulnerable spare part of the crane, the tubing joint, from the hydraulic system of the imported crane.
Exploration platform No. 3 Liba crane tubing joints have special forms, which are not consistent with the commonly used types of joints, and are public and not universal. Therefore, the platform can only declare the imported original manufacturers'tubing. At the same time, there are many kinds of tubing, various pipe diameters and various lengths to be ready for stock, large stock, long time, a lot of inventory. Rubber parts will lose their ability to withstand high pressure due to aging, which will easily cause waste. However, due to the need for safe production, we have to maintain a certain amount of inventory.
In order to solve this problem, Platform Engineer Gao Xinlei led the maintenance team, read a lot of information, gathered relevant information through various channels, combined with the existing equipment of the platform, boldly put forward his own plan of suppressing oil pipelines. In order to solve the problem of metric sleeve pressing, the repairman of tubing joint uses the existing British tube pressing machine on the platform, and puts forward the method of multiple pressing with different sizes of pressing blocks. At the same time, copper sheet is padded between the pressing blocks and sleeves, so as to meet the pressure requirements. After proper peeling or turning the pressure sleeve of the tubing joint, the repairing team effectively utilized the high-pressure hose of the underwater department, avoided redundant purchasing, and carried out 1.25 times working pressure test for each tubing pressed, in order to check the effect and ensure the safety of use.
Exploration No. 3 employees use action to practice the concept of cost reduction and fee reduction, improve themselves, and bravely fight the cold winter.
