Load cell weigh module
A weigh module (1) includes a load cell (2), a base plate (3), a top plate (6), a force-transmitting member (3) serving to transmit the weighing force from the top plate (6) to the load cell (2), and movement-restricting means (9, 10) which serve to limit the horizontal floating movement of the top plate (6) relative to the base plate (3) within a confined range of free play and to transmit lateral force components directly from the top plate (6) to the base plate (3). One part of the movement-restricting means (9, 10) has the form of a channel whose top edges (11) are rigidly connected to the top plate (6) and whose flat bottom extends parallel to the base plate (3) at a clear distance from the latter.
Open hole expandable junction
A method for lining an open hole section of a wellbore includes lowering a tubular member through a cased section of the wellbore, expanding the tubular member in an open hole section of the wellbore, thereby anchoring the tubular member in the wellbore, forming a window in a sidewall of the tubular member, and drilling a lateral wellbore through the window.. .
