  • Maintenance Problem In The Hydraulic System

    Preface This technical report aims to present the possible causes and the solutions for the problems in the unloading circuit of the hydraulic system as well as recommendation for the maintenance strategy the system. The problem are oil reservoir is too hot and the curing pressure in the system insufficient. This report consists of two main topics. Firstly, the technical topic, which has covered the possible causes and some recommendations to solve problems in the system. Secondly, the maintenance strategy, in this part of the report there will be two types of maintenance strategies, which are preventative and predictive maintenance strategies. Each type is related to specific piece of equipment required in this hydraulic system.…

  • Fracking Or Hydraulic Fracturing

    In a rural town where population is not large where natural gas is found beneath. The perfect location for the process of fracking. Fracking or Hydraulic fracturing is the process of drilling down into the earth and releasing a high pressure water mix to obtain natural gas. Fracking began as an experiment in 1947 and started commercially in 1950 and since over two million “fracking jobs” have been done since. The process of fracking is very controversial around the world and has even been…

  • The Pros And Cons Of Hydraulic Fracturing

    As of lately, a process called hydraulic fracturing (fracking) has been all over news channels across America and other countries. Hydraulic Fracturing is defined as a process by which fractures in the rocks below the Earth's surface are opened and widened by injecting sand and/or chemicals at high pressure to extract natural gas or oil ("What is Fracking?"). Fracking is used to extract shale gas, tight sand gas, tight sand oil, and coal seam gas (better known as methane). Hydraulic fracturing…

  • Angkor

    Occupying substantial areas of land, the massive reservoirs, or barays, of Angkor have much debated purposes. One such debate paints the Khmer capital as a hydraulic city, in which the barays, along with other waterworks, were a part of an extensive, meticulously planned, and utilitarian water management network built primarily for the purpose of irrigation. Acker points to four roots of the hydraulic debate and the argument for rice agriculture in Angkor (1998:12-13). The first root is inspired…

  • Hydraulic Fracturing

    industry in North America. The unconventional reservoirs common attribute is that the permeability of the matrix is ultra-low where the permeability often has been improved by natural fractures or induced hydraulic fractures. Hydraulic fracturing creates highly conductive pathways for hydrocarbons from the reservoir into the wellbore. At high pressure, fracturing fluid which includes of proppant, water, and chemicals is pumped downhole to the wellbore. Once the pressure exceeds the fracture…

  • Hydraulic Fracking

    Plastics (Phenolic resins, Epoxy resins, Polyesters and Polyurethanes) are materials which make up the objects which we use in our everyday lives such as phones, cars, cooking utensils, computers and shoes, (http://www.slideshare.net). Plastics are a group of material which can either be synthetic or naturally occurring. Plastics are considered as polymers a substance which has a molecular structure with a large number of units bonded together, (http://www.chemheritage.org). Most plastics are…

  • Hydraulics Case Study

    HOW JCB MACHINE WORKS The Basic Idea of Hydraulics: The basic idea behind any hydraulic system is very simple. Force that is applied at one point is transmitted to another point using an incompressible fluid. The fluid is almost always an oil of some sort. The force is almost always multiplied in the process. If two pistons fit into two glass cylinders fitted with oil and connected to one another with an oil-filled pipe. If you apply a downward force to one piston(suppose the left one), then…

  • Fracking Or Hydraulic Fracturing?

    Fracking, also known as hydraulic fracturing, is a type of drilling that uses water, sand and chemicals, shot at high pressure, to release energy resources trapped inside rocks. This recently new technology for drilling allows areas that were previously inaccessible for drilling, like very concentrated rocky areas, to now be opened up through fracking to obtain natural gases and oil. The water solution used with this drilling technique produces almost the same amount of “sludge” as an after…

  • Argumentative Essay On Fracking

    The website Greenpeace.org hosts an article titled Fracking’s Environmental Impacts: Water. The article discusses the many dangers hydraulic fracturing or fracking poses to water sources both above and below ground. The article also discusses the effects of poor regulation of hydraulic fracturing operations the fracking fluid that is used in the hydraulic fracturing process. Greenpeace.org does not waste any time letting the reader know how they feel about the practice of hydraulic…

  • The Effects Of Hydraulic Fracking

    I am originally from a small rural community in Ohio which has poor regulation on the air and water quality which humans depend on to sustain life. Throughout the city, hydraulic fracking has become a common method to obtain energy. This method of obtaining energy is misconceptualized to be a cleaner alternative to oil and coal, however, with a first hand on experience with living in this area allows me to witness otherwise. This city is known as Youngstown, Ohio. Hydraulic fracking is a…
