information considered helpful in completing the intent of this Record-O-Graph manual:

TW571 FA18 Sum-Master Tru-Torque Systems


TW632 PR25 Electric Torque Meter

1.07 DESCRIPTION

1.08 CASE AND DRUM

1.09 CASE. The case is available in 9 configurations based on four sizes.


1.10 DRUM. The drum assembly consists of the chart drum and a key wound, spring driven clock
motor. The clock motor is available with either 12 or 24 hour capacity.
1.11 RATE OF PENETRATION (ROP) EQUIPMENT

1.12 MECHANICAL ROP. Mechnical ROP uses a mechnical linkage to track the footage being
drilled except as described in paragraph 1.,13. An air va.lvelaJ the drillers console enables
the driller to activate or release an air driven clutch in the ROP equipment measuring assembly so
only drilling operations will be recorded. The measuring assembly is driven by a l/8
inch diameter measuring line.
1.13 HYDRAULIC ROP. Deleted

1.14 MEASURING ASSEMBLY. The measuring assembly (300159 and 300160, or RGSOOMfor
metric) is driven by the measuring line. The measuring assembly drives the ROP pen
assembly and the footage counter during drilling operations.
1.15 AIR CLUTCH ASSEMBLY. The air clutch assembly (RG900C-3) is used to release the
measuring drum, allowing it to free wheel during nondrilling operations. The clutch is
operated by the driller, at the drillers console, by means of an air valve (RG24).
1.16 FOOTAGE COUNTER AND DRIVE ASSEMBLY (CABLE ACTIVATED). The footage counter
(RG1400, or RG1400M for metric) is a counter turned by a fletible cable.
The footage counter provides a direct reading record of the number of feet (or meters) being drilled.
1.17 FOOTAGE COUNTER (PNEUMATICALLY ACTIVATED). Deleted

Page 6 l/80
I MARTIN-DECKER/TECHNICAL MANUAL RECORD-O-GRAPH

1.18 STAND ASSEMBLIES (RGlOO -3, - 5 and - 7). Stand assemblies are provided for wall or floor
mounting of the recorder. For free standing floor mount, two front legs with braces are
available.
1.19 RETRIEVER (SPRING WOUND). The retriever assembly (RGZOO)maintains tension on the
measuring line. The retriever assembly contains a large coiled spring, similar to the main
spring of a clock, which is wound with a crank handle that is demountable. As the kelly lowers dur-
ing drilling operations the retriever spring is wound tighter. When the kelly is raised the retriever
spring rewinds the line and stores it on the retriever take-up spool.
1.20 RETRIEVER (PNEUMATIC). The retriever assembly (RG1600) maintains a constant tension
on the measuring line utilizing rig service air and is mounted on the Record-O-Graph stand
assembly directly below the hole in the bottom of the case. As the kelly lowers during a drilling
operation the line is drawn from the retriever take-up spool. When the kelly is raised the line is
rewound and stored on the take-up spool.
1.21 GUIDE SWIVEL AND DERRICK SHEAVE ASSEMBLIES. The guide swivel assembly (RG400)
and the pulley/chain assembly (M682A) are used to guide the measuring cable from the swivel
gooseneck up the derrick and into the Record-O-Graph. If the recorder is located on the rig floor,
the guide swivel assembly is mounted directly on top of the case. One or more pulley/chains may
be used to route the measuring cable down the derrick.
1.22 ROP PEN ASSEMBLY. The ROP pen assembly (300161 and RGlOOOP metric) is mounted on
an upright shaft which is supported by two bearings at the receiver plate in the case. A
tension knob on the pen arm provides tensioning adjustment for the ball point pen.
1.23 BOURDON TUBE AND PEN ASSEMBLY
The Bourdon tube and pen assembly (RG700, RGIOOU and RGIOOT) accepts hydraulic signals
and translates them onto the chart. A tension knob on the pen arm provides tensioning adjustment
for the bail point pen. A pen zero adjustment knob is also a part of the Bourdon tube assembly and
is used to zero the pen on the chart.
1.24 DAMPENING CHAMBERS
Hydraulic signals enter the recorder case through dampening chambers mounted on the out-
side. The dampening chambers are used to control line width and smooth the impact of momentarily
high overloads. Examples of hydraulic signals that can be accepted by the Bourdon tube and pen
assembly are:
Weight in suspension (hook load)
it: Rotary torque
C. Pump pressure
1.25 PEN MOTOR ASSEMBLY
The pen motor assembly (RG800-2) will accept a pneumatic signal of from 3 to 15 psi. A
signal of this range can be connected directly to the bulkhead tubing connector on the side of the case.
An electrical signal can be converted to this range by using a transducer, such as the MARTIN-
DECKER E/P Transducer RG77.

1.26 CHART CASE


An accessory to the Record-O-Graph, the chart case (300239 & 300240) is selected to match
the size recorder case that has been specified. The chart case is wall mounted and holds a supply of
charts to be used. The front door of the chart case contains a compartment and when opened a second
compartment is available for chart storage. Each compartment has two pins to match the holes in
the charts, and a hold down spring to keep the charts securely on the pins.
1.27 HOOKUP EQUIPMENT
The hookup equipment described herein is the specialized equipment required to pick-off a
signal from a specified sensor, and route the signal to the Record-O-Graph.
1.28 TONG TORQUE INDICATOR. The tong torque indicator hookup equipment (H1181-1) consists
of self-sealing quick disconnect, tee and hydraulic hose to connect into a hydraulic sensor sys-
tem already instailed on the rig. This hookup equipment is connected directly to the Record-O-Graph.
1.29 ANCHOR TYPE WEIGHT INDICATORS. The H1181-3 kit consists of a hose with a self-sealing
quick disconnect on one end to connect to the Record-O-Graph. The other end of the hose has
a fitting which fits the plugged port beneath the dampener in the red box weight indicator. The
H1181-4 kit consists of self-sealing quick disconnects on both ends of a hose, allowing for hookup to
a console. The H1181-1 (paragraph 1.28) contains a tee and self-sealing quick disconnects to connect
the recorder to the E80 Sensater in the Deadline Anchor.

1.30 WEIGHT (INDEPENDENT). The independent weight hookup equipment (H1182) is used for
applications that do not already have a weight sensing system. This equipment consists of
a diaphragm, as used in the MARTIN-DECKER Clipper Sealtite, self-sealing quick disconnect
fitting, and a hydraulic hose to route the hydraulic signal directly to the Record-O-Graph.
1.31 PUMP PRESSURE (INDEPENDENT). The independent pump pressure hookup equipment
(H1183-2) is used in the event a hydraulic mud pressure indicating system is not installed.
This equipment consists of an isolator diaphragm, a self-sealing quick disconnect fitting and a
hydraulic hose to route the hydraulic signal directly to the Record-O-Graph. The isolator assembly
is mounted on any two inch connection on the mud line and is equipped with a rubber cup that sepa-
rates the drilling mud from the hydraulic fluid.
1.32 HYDRO-MECH IDLER ASSEMBLY. The Hydro-Mech Idler Assembly (H1181-2) consists of
self-sealing quick disconnect, tee and hydraulic hose to route the hydraulic signal directly to
the Record-O-Graph. This hookup is primarily designed for use with MARTIN-DECKER Hydro-Mech
but will work equally well with any hydraulic torque measuring system except the Tru-Torque System.

1.33 TRU-TORQUE (HYDRAULIC). The Tru-Torque System (FA 18) utilizes the RGIOOT Bourdon
tube and pen assembly, and two E497 Sensaters with hydraulic hoses (Kit 300356). The
hydraulic signal routes directly to the Record-O-Graph.
1.34 ROTARY TORQUE (ELECTRIC). The rotary torque (electric) hookup equipment (H1184)
consists of a transducer (RG77-3), safety amplifier (H989A-l), electric cord and air pres-
sure tubing to change an electric signal to air and route the resultant air signal to the Record-O-
Graph. The amplifier is connected across a suitable O-50 or O-100 MV signal from the diesel
electric generator shunt to the rotary table drive motor.

1.35 RPM and SPM. The KT1007A Kit includes hardware to connect the Record-O-Graph to any
PlOOOlA Tachometer System that includes readout option BC. The tachometer system con-
tains a tachometer, drive for the tachometer, a readout, cord, and junction box. Readout option BSS
is an E/P transducer RG77-17P used to convert the tachometer electrical signal to a proportional
3 to 15 psi pneumatic signal for use by the recorder.
1.36 FILTER PACKAGE. The filter package (H1211) must be used in conjunction with an E/P
transducer. Included in the filter package are a filter regulator (100051), gauge (RG19), and
hardware with hose to connect the filter to rig service air. The filter package filters the air and
regulates it before it is routed to all E/P transducers used with the recorder. Only one filter package
is required to service multiple E/P transducers.

3.00 CALIBRATION
3.01 RECORD-O-GRAPH
AH pen drive assemblies are calibrated at the factory, but you may wish to alter the calibra-
tion for some reason. Record-O-Graph calibration consists of adjusting the pens for zero and span.
The different pen drivers: bourdon tube, pen motor and ROP mechanism are all calibrated in a
different manner, and are treated separately in the following paragraphs. Components of the auxii-
iary equipment will also be covered with detailed calibration procedures as required.
3.02 BOURDON TUBE AND PEN ASSEMBLY. Make adjustments as follows:

3.03 Zero Adjustment.

a. Remove a.11extraneous load or pressure from sensor connected to burdon tube


damping chamber. Do not disconnect the pressure due to the weight of the traveling
block or due to preload required to collapse the mud cup diaphragm.
b. Rotate Pen adjustment knob located on side of Record-O-Graph case. Align pen with
chart zero for that particular function.

Figure 3-l. Pen Assembly Span Adjustment

11/78 Page 21
RECORD-O-GRAPH MAflTlN-DECKER/TECHNICAL MANUAL

3.04 Span Adjustment. (except HOOK LOAD bourdon tube and pen assembly):
Loosen thumb nut (Figure 3-l item 1).
i: Be sure that upper and lower slides are parallel.
C. Slide fulcrum screw (item 2) fulcrum spacer (item 3) and thumb nut frontward to
increase span, or slide rearward to decrease span.
d. Tighten thumb nut.
e. Repeat paragraphs 3.03 and 3.04 as necessary to calibrate bourdon tube and pen
assembly.
3.05 Hook Load Pen Adjustment.

Loosen thumb nut (Figure 3-l item 1).


t: Slide fulcrum screw (item 2), fulcrum spacer (item 3) and thumb nut along pen arm
(item 4), until thumb nut is at mark indicating number of wire lines strung between
crown block and traveling block.
C. Tighten thumb nut.
3.06 Line Width Adjustment.
a. Rotate stem handle on dampening chamber located on side of case to adjust line trace
to the desired width. Too much dampening will cause the recorder to react sluggishly.

3.07 PEN MOTOR ASSEMBLY. Pen motor is factory adjusted and should require no further
alterations. However if the adjustments have been upset, proceed as follows:

a. Apply a varying pressure just below 3 psi and adjust the zero nut until some small
amount of pen travel is observed below 3 psi.
b. Apply exactly 3 psi.
C. Adjust pen to zero on the chart by rotating eccentric screw (Figure 3-2 item 1).
Tap the recorder as required to reduce pen friction.

NOTE

If the pen will not indicate zero, perform


steps d thrui.

d. Set pen to center of eccentric screw adjustment.


Loosen front and rear clamps (item 2) at base of pen motor.
f9 Apply 3 psi input pressure.
g. Rotate pen motor to place pen at zero on chart.
h. Tighten clamps.
i. If necessary, perform steps 5, 5 and c_for fine zero adjustment.

3.11 Span Adjustment.


Slide the Record-O-Graph from wall and remove back access panel.
ba: Loosen push rod attach knob
C. Slide push rod attach knob and screw (Figure 3-3 item 1) along pen linkage arm
(item 3) to vary span adjustment. Slide toward rear of recorder to increase pen travel
and away from rear to decrease pen travel.
d. Tighten push rod attach knob
Check pen zero setting, if out of adjustment refer to paragraph 3.10.
r9 If pen zero setting is correct replace back access panel and return recorder to its
original position.

3.12 ROP PEN ASSEMBLY (300161); This assembly is found only in non-metric recorders.
Make adjustments as follows:
3.13 Zero Adjustments:
Slide the Record-O-Graph from wall and remove back access panel.
t: Adjust the pen tension knob until the pen returns sluggishly when deflected. Reduce
the pen force until both a snappy return and a heavy marking on the chart is achieved.
Cut off all of the protruding top of the pen adjustment screw.
C. Apply air pressure. Adjust the air regulator (Figure 3-4 item 1) to just cause full
extension (0.7 inch) of the air cylinder rod.
d. With air applied loosen the screws in the air cylinder clamp (item 2) and slide the
cylinder until the cylinder rod deflects the pen tip 3/16 + l/16 inch. This adjustment
determines the extent of offset for off-bottom indication. Securely tighten the air
cylinder clamp screws.
e. With air applied, turn the mechanism to produce spikes on the chart. If necessary,
adjust the inside spring plunger (item 3) to make the short spikes l/4 + l/16 inch tall;
Adjustment is made by holding the plunger with a 5/16 inch wrench, and loosening or
tightening the internal spring (item 4) with a 7/32 inch allen wrench. If you rotate
the barrel of the plunger, you must repeat step 2 above.
f. With air applied, loosen the set screws in the pen lever (item 5) and position the pen
tip to the desired zero (drilling) position. This zero position should be in a location
where the time lapse between pulses is easily read, i.e., the pen markings should
not obliterate the time lines or the time numerals. Before tightening the set screws
in the pen lever position it vertically l/32 to l/16 inch above the big plate of the
striker Verify that the striker is in its normal position between the 5 cam
protrusions. Securely tighten the set screws.

3.14 Span Adjustments:


a. Remove and reapply air pressure several times and observe the pen overshoot, if
any, as the pen returns to the operating baseline after being in the off-bottom position.
Adjust the air regulator, if necessary, to reduce the overshoot to less than 1./16 inch.
Too little air pressure will diminish baseline repeatability.

b. The assembly is now calibrated. Rotate the assembly in the reverse direction with
air pressure applied to be sure nothing binds or breaks. When the assembly is work-
ing satisfactorily, drill and pin the pen lever in position.
C. Replace back access panel and return Record-O-Graph to its original position.
3.15 RPM and SPM. Calibrate the RPM and SPM as follows:

Apply 3 psi input pressure.


ba: Adjust pen to zero by rotating eccentric screw (Figure 3-2 item 1).
c. Operate the pump (SPM) or the rotary (RPM) and count the revolutions in one minute
time.
d. Set the pot on the side of the RG77 transducer to make the indication agree with the
count of step c.
3.16 ROTARY TORQUE (ELECTRIC) (H1184). Instruction manual TW632 defines the details
of this calibration. Briefly, it involves zeroing the amplifier with input terminals shorted;
spanning the amplifier and E/P transducer(s) with a calibrated signal from a test fixture, and finally
connecting the amplifier to the shunt. Voltages present are lethal and connections to the shunt must
be made by a qualified rig electrican with all DC power turned off.
3.17 TRU-TORQUE (FA18). Instruction manual TW 571 defines the details of this calibration.
Briefly, it involves the following steps:

Set Rotary brake, leave table unlocked.


Suspend the drilling string in the Kelly-down position; Kelly drive bushing in place and
very little or no external weight on the table.
Install a Tong Torque unit on the break-out tong.
Mount the break-out tong on the Kelly box and point the handle toward the V-door.
Using a come-a-long (or similar system) anchor the pull line to create a pull in the
direction of the rotary input shaft. This will put the turnbuckle to the rotary under
considerable tension.
e. Pull a torque of about 24,000 ft. - lbs. (6,000 lbs. pull on a 4 ft. tong handle).
NOTE: Pull must be at 90 to tong handle for accurate calibration.
f. Calibrate recorder to this point.
g. Check zero and repeat as necessary for calibration.

4.00 OPERATION
4.01 CHANGING THE CHART. Change the chart as follows:
a. Gpen door of case by raising access door handle to its full travel and engaging access
door catch (refer to Figure 3-5 item 1).
b. Raise pen lifter arm handle (item 5) and place pen lifter arm in upper position in pen
lifter arm catch (item 4).

c. To replace chart without removing drum, insert top edge of chart beneath retaining
clips with remainder of chart draped down in front of the recorder. Roll the drum
one revolution to draw the chart onto the drum. If the chart is bonded at both ends,
run a finger through the bond at the trailing edge to ensure that it will wrap flat on the
drum. Release the clips and tuck the trailing edge of the chart under the leading edge
and retain both thicknesses with the clips.

NOTE

The model number of the chart to be used


with a particular Record-O-Graph is
stamped on the nameplate on the front of the
instrument.

d. Rotate the drum by hand, overriding the clutch, until pens are lined up at the correct
time of day.
e. Lower pen lifter arm to lower position in pen lifter catch. Pens should now be on
chart.
f. Gently scribble pens on chart, if desired, to ensure ink flow.

5.02 HYDRAULIC LEAK. When a leak is discovered, repair or replace the hose and refill the
system with MARTIN-DECKER W15 fluid per paragraph 2.13 for add-on equipment, para-
graph 2.14 for weight hookup equipment, or paragraph 2.15 for pump pressure hookup equipment.
5.03 AIR PRESSURE SYSTEMS. Air pressure systems should be checked regularly for leaks
using a soapless lather. Tighten or replace any lines or fittings that are not air-tight.
The air filter should also be checked, and the drip well drained to minimize damage from excess
moisture.
5.04 TRANSDUCERS. The E/P transducers should be kept clean and dry. Paragraphs 3.13,
3.14 and 3.15 outline the calibration procedures to be followed if calibration should be
necessary.
5.05 AMPLIFIERS. The amplifier (H989A-1) used with the Rotary Torque hookup must be kept
clean and dry.
5.06 GENERATORS. The generators require a check of their pulley alignment as well as being
kept clean and dry.
5.07 ACCESS WINDOW. Clean only with a clean soft cloth. Do not use abrasives or strong
chemical cleaners.
