Fabrication of a Stainless Steel Choke Control Console, for on-shore puposes


How to regulate oil & gas flows in harsh conditions, with fabrication

Crow regularly fabricates turnkey consoles to house . . .

. . . Pressure devices, flow gauges &/or hydraulic controls for the oil, gas and energy industries.

Fabricated metal parts provide the instruments an extended life with reliable service, and especially because the enclosures must withstand destructive environments.

This box (AKA: “choke control”) would serve on-shore drilling operations . . . 

. . . .And so it started out as 304 stainless steel plate and went through these metal fabrication processes:

  • Laser cut plate
  • Formed in high tonnage press brakes
  • Welded panels to form the 28-inches in length, 32-inches in width, and 41.5-inches in height enclosure
  • Grain blasted
  • Final assembly of all component parts

Both in-process and final quality inspections verified the necessary ± ⅛" tolerance.

Four of these were fabricated in less than two weeks, from start-to-finish.

So if you want to control & monitor boxes like these from your cozy off-site location, you shorten your lead times when you get your extreme weather units here at Crow.
