The Blocks and Drilling Line, 3rd Ed. - iPad Edition
This comprehensive training manual tackles the workhorses of the rotary drilling rig, the blocks and drilling line. Without this essential hoisting equipment, there could be no rig. The crown block and traveling block are connected by the drilling line, and all three together carry out the large amount of lifting that drilling requires. Together they may suspend the entire downhole assembly, which often weighs many tons. For rig owners, toolpushers, drillers, and rig hands alike, it pays to know the basics.
The book overviews the use, components, and maintenance of the blocks and drilling line in rotary drilling rigs. Sections cover installing the line, service life, drilling line construction, reeving, drum spooling, visual inspections, blocks and hook assemblies, and elevators. Appendices, a glossary, and review questions help the reader to understand the concepts.
