Geothermal energy is the heat derived from the Earth’s interior, harnessed for various applications such as electricity generation and heating by utilizing the natural heat reservoirs found beneath the Earth’s surface. A customer has a conventional geothermal system and needs to drill a deep well into the Earth in order to tap into its natural heat reservoirs.
Interface’s IPCD Pressure Compensated Downhole Load Cell is a highly accurate load cell that was developed specifically for downhole tension and compression measurements in high temperature, high pressure well conditions, such as drilling to build or develop geothermal infrastructure. Precise tool string force measurements can be monitored real time through customer instrumentation.
The customer effectively managed forces on the toolstring throughout the well drilling process, thereby preventing costly tool separation or damage.
