In the past, technicians who test drilling tools and electronics for Halliburton had to manually simulate deep well conditions to make sure that equipment would be able to survive the extreme pressure under the earth’s surface.  This manual system exposed technicians to high pressure, placing them at risk because there was no separation between them and the sources of high pressure. To reduce the risk of these testing procedures, Halliburton asked Optimation to create a system for technicians to run tests remotely, safely, and efficiently.



Optimation used CompactRIO and LabVIEW software to develop a turnkey layout and fabrication of a new valve, panel, and control system.
