2013 IADC Advanced Rig Technology Conference
September 17 - 18, 2013
Location: Stavanger, Norway
Venue: Radisson Blu Atlantic Hotel
SKF presents a simulation study of the bearing system in a top drive. In drilling operations, top drives remain the critical path for downtime. A robust and reliable bearing system is a critical component for reliable top-drive operation. A demonstration of how simulation tools and methods lead to improved bearing-system reliability in a top drive will be given.
