Chrome Handling Equipment
Get a grip without leaving a trace.
As industry explores wells in more extreme conditions, corrosion becomes a significant factor in the lifelong integrity of a well. Corrosion resistant alloys are becoming necessary in completing these wells and precautions are required when handling these tubulars. Material contamination by materials more susceptible to corrosion than the base pipe, or surface imperfections, can lead to preferential corrosion and pitting in those areas, putting the integrity of your pipe at risk.
The low-marking package for the Volant CRTe® external grip casing running tool virtually eliminates die marking on corrosion resistant tubulars to assure long term integrity of completions in these extreme environments. The key is a contamination free, evenly distributed grip that leaves predictable markings at a fraction of those allowed by ISO 13680 and related industry standards such as API 5CRA.
