This topic describes how an accumulator Koomey Unit works. First of all, I will start with accumulator bottles. Each bottle, which has a rubber bladder inside, has a storage volume of 10 gallons. The rubber bladder inside is pre-charged to 1, psi with Nitrogen N2.
Each bottle will be pressured up psi over the pressure charge pressure. At this stage, 1. In an accumulator unit as shown in the figure below as an example, there are one electric pump and two pneumatic pumps, which will be automatically pumped hydraulic fluid, which is stored in a reservoir tank when pressure in bottles is below set pressure in order to maintain bottle pressure at 3, psi.
The electric pump is mainly used to maintain pressure. Pneumatic pumps will be use in case of 1 the electric pump failure and 2 helping the electric pump to increase bottle pressure quicker. The first way is used for controlling an annular preventer.
Pressure used to operate the annular preventer must be less than pressure used to operate rams preventer because high pressure will damage a rubber seal inside of the annular preventer. The regulated hydraulic fluid under pressure of 1, goes to a manifold which is used to divide hydraulic pressure in many ways to operate equipment. One is for opening equipment and another one is for closing equipment.
You can operate the BOP equipment by pushing remote switches or handles at the accumulator unit.
4-Way Valve Operation in Blow Out Preventer Accumulator (Koomey) Unit
In case of opening equipment, pressured hydraulic fluid will be transmitted to the open port and hydraulic power will drive an internal mechanism inside equipment in order to open equipment. Fluid in closing side will be pushed out and go back to a reservoir tank. On the contrary, in case of closing equipment, the process is quite as same as opening process but only fluid flow direction is opposite.
Thank you for this simple explanation… I took a whole class about this and your few paragraphs were easier to understand than the whole class! And dose this work without power to the uint? Oil in the bottles will not be bleed off so the level is the same when you put accumuoator the bypass side. With by pass, you will lock the function of BOP in either open or accumulatoe direction. The only time that the by pass position is used is when rig move. If not ,Kindly explain the function of the bypass vavle in the unit.
While rig move bottles are pressurized or not,if pressurized then what are the precaution in rig move to handle pressurized bottles. Typically, you acumulator bleed only surface line to 0 psi and leave pressure in the system. You also need to put the 4-way valve in neutral position while moving the rig. Please read this article for more information. A colleague told me that an accumulator should have a electrical driven pump and a backup air pump. What is the difference between those two and how kooney is it not to have a backup pump?
I accumklator a Geologist so trying to understand this all…. The 3 gauges is for: The correct pressure to read is psi for accumulator, psi for manifold, — psi for annular BOP. For the stored N2 in the bottles under psi, can this accumulatkr be used in the case that both electric and penumatic pumps are down to close the annular bop. It depends on the system you cacumulator and how many bottles you have.

Com April 26, – 9: Understand shoe pressure — Top of Gas Kick B I would like to address about the shoe pressure concept while while circulating gas influx out of wellbore.
This is the fist scenario – Top of the gas Why Slug Does Not Work? Slug is typically used to push mud in the drill string down therefore pipe will dry while pulling out of hole.
Dry pipe while pulling out has some adv I wish you would enjoy learning it. Com Working in the oil field and loving to share knowledge. View all posts ooomey DrillingFormulas.

Mechanism of Accumulator (Koomey Unit)
May moomey, at July 14, at Mahmoud, This is correct. Sometimes, you need more pressure to get more closure force. February 11, at 4: February 13, at February 14, at 3: Rraz, While the rig move, you should not have any pressure in the accumulator bottles.

June 24, at 6: I am a Geologist so trying to understand this all… Thanks in advance! July 6, at 9: March 11, at There are 3 pressure gauges in the Koomey unit, what are these gauges for and their functions.

July 23, at 3: July 24, at 7: August accumulatpr, at 7: Why we are using only N2 not any other gas or air? August 4, at 5: December 10, at December 11, at 6: N2 is used because it is the inert gas so it will not explode with high temperature condition.
