  • East Aurora, N.Y. – May 6, 2019 - Moog (NYSE: MOG.A and MOG.B) – a designer and manufacturer of high performance motion control products, solutions, and services – has received certification according to NEC 505 from FM Approvals for its full line of Digital Control Servo Valve products including the D636K to D639K, D671K to D675K and D941K to D945K Series, which customers can use with onshore and offshore oil and gas drill rigs. This product family also holds the ATEX and IECEx certifications.

    Moog Explosion-Proof Digital Control Servo and Proportional Valves provide intelligent closed-loop motion control (with either analog or fieldbus interfaces) and optimize equipment functionality. The product family includes designs for flow control and pressure and flow control; Moog also has Axis Control Versions available. The Pressure and Flow Control Valves have a pressure transducer integrated in the valve to access the optimum sampling position. On-board electronics monitor the valves in an internal closed loop control to create the pressure control.  This capability often enables the user to use one valve instead of two, (i.e., defining minimum or maximum pressure, while controlling flow or controlling pressure with defined limits to the flow) offering customers flexibility and cost-saving.

    Customers can use the Explosion-Proof Moog Digital Control Servo and Proportional Valves for a range of applications in offshore and onshore oil and gas exploration and production, including control of:

    • A rotary table on the deck of a rig during the drilling process, which provide rotational torque to a drill string throughout the process of drilling a borehole.
    • A draw-works which are used to hoist and lower drilling pipe into a borehole.
    • An iron roughneck that connects and disconnects pipe segments used in a borehole.

    This product family provides CAN/CANopen, EtherCAT and PROFIBUS fieldbus connections, which equipment builders and operators find easier for controlling drilling machinery at a high-performance level in potentially explosive environments.

    Moog has extensive experience designing and manufacturing products for demanding environments and first introduced certified valves for use in explosive environments in 1972. As the leader in high performance servo valve technology with hundreds of engineers experienced in hydraulic designs, Moog offers valves with the safety, reliability and advanced technology needed by industries with potentially explosive environments. Advanced digital technology with parameter setting, condition monitoring and remote diagnostics enables equipment builders and operators to maximize uptime in operations.

    “In North America, it’s critical for oil and gas manufacturers, operators and technology suppliers to meet NEC 505 – the electric code for locations where hazardous, flammable gases may exist,” said Craig Jackson, regional sales manager for Moog’s oil and gas market. “With this series of Moog Explosion-proof Servo and Proportional Valves having passed the full-hazard area test protocols, machine operators can rely on us to build a compliant system on their rigs.”

    “We’re not just selling certified servo valves,” added Jackson. “Moog is a solutions provider with engineers across North America and the globe who assist customers to identify their application requirements. Moog engineers are experts in designing motion control components that meet the customers’ application parameters and stringent hazardous area requirements.” 

    The newly certified D636K to D639K, D671K to D675K and D941K to D945K Series Digital Control Servo and Proportional Valves are also suitable for applications in potentially hazardous environments like power generation and chemical processing.

  • East Aurora, N.Y. – April 18, 2019 – At the 2019 Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) in Houston (booth #1249), Moog Inc. (NYSE: MOG.A and MOG.B), a designer and manufacturer of high-performance motion control products and solutions, will showcase technology for boosting the uptime of oil and gas operations in marine and subsea, downhole and topside equipment.

    Moog’s advanced technology includes a range of products for three main oil and gas exploration and production submarkets: subsea and marine; topside rigs; and downhole tools.

    Moog will also feature an in-booth presentation titled “What Moves Your World – Latest Trends in Motion Control for Oil and Gas” at 11:00 a.m. CDT on May 7 and 2:00 p.m. CDT on May 8, 2019. David Grabau, senior business development manager for Moog’s Industrial Group, will discuss additive manufacturing, downhole tools and global certifications that are important to equipment builders and operators.

    In the subsea and marine submarket, attendees can explore a wide range of ISO 13628-6 qualified subsea control Moog Focal products including fiber optic modems, Ethernet switches, sensor data interfaces, condition monitoring technology for applications ranging from blowout preventer (BOP) controls to subsea processing and well-head instrumentation. For floating production systems (FPS), the Moog Focal line of rotary and electro-optic equipment for FPS swivel stacks includes: fiber optic, toroidal fluid and electrical swivels, as well as wavelength converters and multiplexers.

    For downhole tools, Moog will present Configurable and Customizable Downhole Motors that maximize power density and efficiency and operate for a long service life even in the high temperature and high-pressure conditions of this application. Moog will also feature slip rings, linear motors, electro-mechanical actuators and servo and proportional valves commonly used in downhole equipment.

    “The benefit for customers who buy pre-engineered downhole motors is that there’s no longer a process of configuration, which means it’s faster and easier to do prototypes and implement the motor,” said Grabau.

    For topside rigs, Moog will feature its Explosion-Proof Digital Control Servo and Proportional Valves that feature intelligent closed-loop motion control (with either analog or fieldbus interfaces) to optimize equipment functionality. Moog recently had these valves certified by FM Approvals and the product line includes ATEX and IECEx certifications. Customers can use the Explosion-Proof Moog Digital Control Servo and Proportional Valves for a range of applications in offshore and onshore oil and gas exploration and production, including control of: a rotary table on the deck of a rig during the drilling process; a draw-works; and an iron roughneck. Moog also features radial piston pumps, integrated hydraulic manifold systems, hydraulic actuators, electro-hydrostatic actuators, brushless servo motors, electric actuators, slip rings, fiber optic rotary joints, helical actuators, multiplexers and media converters used in topside rigs.

    “Along with our technology, our technicians and engineers work with customers to translate business-mission goals into highly effective solutions that keep oil and gas operations running longer and more profitably,” added Grabau.

    If a challenge requires an exceptional approach, Moog will tap into its engineering know-how and capabilities such as additive manufacturing to design and manufacture advanced engineering solutions that traditional manufacturing methods cannot solve. These solutions might involve different hydraulic designs or configurations with smaller and lighter parts.

    “With our customer, we create the motion-control solution that boosts the profitability and safety of bringing oil and gas from the source to its point of need,” said Greg Hynes, sales manager, Moog Focal. “We also work with our customers and their business partners at the installation site to implement solutions safely and expediently. Equally important to having high quality, reliable swivels and communication equipment is ensuring they are correctly installed and commissioned.”
