  • Publication number: 20240182278
    Abstract: A wireless hoist system including a first hoist device having a first motor and a first wireless transceiver and a second hoist device having a second motor and a second wireless transceiver. The wireless hoist system includes a controller in wireless communication with the first wireless transceiver and the second wireless. The controller is configured to receive a user input and determine a first operation parameter and a second operation parameter based on the user input. The controller is also configured to provide, wirelessly, a first control signal indicative of the first operation parameter to the first hoist device and provide, wirelessly, a second control signal indicative of the second operation parameter to the second hoist device. The first hoist device operates based on the first control signal and the second hoist device operates based on the second control signal.

  • Patent number: 4030354
    Abstract: The test sub is attached to the drill pipe by screw type connections. The bottom connection of the test sub is screwed into a telescoping joint (variable length joint of drill pipe) or a pup joint (short joint of drill pipe). The telescoping joint or pup joint is then screwed into a test plug. This assembly is lowered into the control hookup until the test plug seats in the wellhead. The test plug seats and forms a pressure seal in the wellhead. The length of the telescoping joint and/or pup joint is such that the distance between the top of the test sub and the bottom of the test plug is the same as the distance between the top of the annular preventer and the center of the wellhead.The casing rams are closed around the test sub and test fluid is pumped through this assembly through the test plug and between the sub and the control hookup. Pressure is applied to the casing rams and control hookup through the test fluid. The process is the same when testing the annular preventer.
