Engineering Education Scheme Wales Project

Guardian recently become involved in a local initiative run by Engineering Education Scheme Wales that encourages school pupils to consider careers in engineering through a range of interesting activities

Back in October 2012, Jim Flood, Guardian’s Sustaining Engineering Manager, provided A Level students at Brynteg Comprehensive School an engineering project to work on over a 5 month period.

The project brief was to design and manufacture a suitable vibration jig fitted with an accelerometer, capable of testing Guardian’s tools to our rigorous specifications.

The team submitted a formal report and mounted an exhibition of their work, including a fully functional prototype vibration jig, at the Celtic Manor Hotel, Newport. The team presented their findings to a panel of professional engineers and judges. Out of the 66 schools that exhibited, Brynteg did extremely well and the project was nominated for two awards. We are pleased to announce they won first prize in one of the categories – Best Overall Team Performance

Jim Flood said; “It was a pleasure to collaborate with the team from Brynteg on this project. I was very impressed with the high quality work they produced and with their overall level of professionalism. The competition was of the highest quality and to win first prize in one of the categories was testament to the hard work all of the team put into the project.”

Everyone at Guardian looks forward to continuing to support local pupils and any efforts to increase their interest in engineering as a career.

Andrew Hazell also competed in the Iron Man Wales contest (4 mile swim, 112 mile cycle, followed by a marathon!) which he completed in around 13 hours.

The final fundraising event was a Car Treasure Hunt around the Kenfig Hill, Pyle and Cornelly area. Charity representatives were invited to come along to the event and a presentation was held after to present the donations. Mark from Wales Air Ambulance said, “Many thanks to Guardian for their support over the last 12 months, it is only through the support we receive from the people of Wales that we are able to raise enough funds to keep us in the air over Wales and continue to save life.”

Guardian Rowing Marathon for Comic Relief 2013

John McGrath, Guardian's Sales and Marketing Director, challenged the Company to attempt to beat him in a 26 mile rowing marathon, to raise money for Comic Relief, pledging £200 if he was beaten.

Such was the support received, that the Guardian All Stars put 2 very capable teams up against John. While John was unsurprisingly beaten by the 2 teams, his dignity remained intact. John expressed his gratitude to both teams saying, "While I didn't win, I did beat my personal best time and my all-time goal of finishing in under 3 hours, I couldn't have done it alone! Thanks to everyone for taking part and for your support"

Les Enstone, a member of the Guardian All Stars said, "Such a fabulous effort from John! It's great to see such a team building effort from everyone!"

The rowing challenge raised over £1300 for Comic Relief. A superb effort all round!

Guardian Release New 5 Arm Fullbore Flowmeter

Guardian is pleased to announce that it has just released two new 5 arm bowspring fullbore flowmeter (BFF) tools that are fully compatible with its range of production logging tools.  The BFF-A is suitable for casing sizes from 3 5/8” up to 5” and the BFF-E is designed to operate in the larger 5” to 7” casing range.

The new 5 arm design means that should one arm fall into a side pocket or slot it does not have an opposing arm forcing it in harder.  Generally this would mean that the opposing arm would itself be pushed into a slot compounding the problem.  This 5 arm design ensures that only 1 arm would be exposed to slots hence maintaining better centralisation while reducing drag and minimising the chances of getting stuck.

Further information can be found in the Production Logging Systems section of the website.
