Valve Leakage Detection in Industrial Pumps

Authors: Age Kyllingstad, SPE, and Pål Jacob Nessjøen, SPE, National Oilwell Varco

Challenge: Reducing human exposure to hazardous environments by developing a system to perform maintenance inspections on industrial mud pumps used in oil and gas exploration.

Solution: Deploying an embedded system with NI CompactRIO hardware and NI LabVIEW software, which can easily be retrofitted onto existing pumps, to monitor and analyze mud pump vibrations.
