Drilling is tough – drilling into machine health, on the most vulnerable components of a drilling rig, shouldn’t be. Top drives and mud pumps are two of the most critical components on a drilling rig and can benefit most from continuous monitoring and predictive maintenance. The top drive motor and gearbox allows for more precise control of the drilling process, helping to increase on bottom drilling time and reduce downtime. For upstream drilling operations, having a continuous monitoring system is critical.
