NEXT GENERATION TYPHOON

NEXT GENERATION TYPHOON


Automated pipe handling systems have allowed many conventional rig floor tasks to become obsolete. Yet a fundamental operation – wiping the pipe when POOH, still relies on technology from the days of wooden derricks. With 100% Red Zone compliance a non-negotiable in today’s Drilling industry, there existed a gap in technology that RIGTOOLS identified and have solved with the TYPHOON v3.

Facts

The TYPHOON Wiper is tailor-made to fit on top of the diverter or bell nipple. It connects to the rig’s HP water system or a special HP unit fit for purpose. In addition LP air is connected for actuation of the rubber wiping blades.
Actuation of water/wiper blades can be done locally on the drill floor or remotely from Driller’s Cabin.

  • Heavy duty stainless steel.
  • HP water nozzles for cleaning BHA components.
  • Require: HP water at 150-200 bar, 20-24 liter/min.
  • 8 adjustable rubber blades for wiping DP,HWDP,DCs etc.
  • Require: LP air at 6-7 bar, 1000lpm for operation of slew motor.
  • Machinery ATEX certified for zone 1.
  • ID minimum – Greater than 18 ¾”
  • In compliance with ”Dropped Object Prevention Handbook”.

Advantages

  • Easy to install on top of diverter or bell nipple.
  • Improves safety on drill floor.
  • No risk of dropped objects.
  • No debris on drill floor or windows from using manual HP cleaning. All debris will be kept below rotary. Clean and tidy.
  • BHA and DP string will be pulled faster out of hole, no stops for manual cleaning.
  • Clean BHA when racking back or laying down on deck.

Benefits

  • TYPHOON Wiper eliminates personnel performing manual cleaning in Red Zone when BHA and DP is pulled through rotary.
  • Cost savings on purchase of wiper rubbers.
  • Rig time savings on installation/removal of wiper rubbers on every trip.
  • Rig time savings when pulling BHA through RT.
    No mud on slips.
  • Eliminates handling of master bushings prior to POOH if installing wiper rubber below the table.
  • Eliminates hazards of mud on rotary table if wiper rubber installed above table.
  • Blades adjustable through full range from 18 ¾” to 2 7/8” – Ability to wipe casing, standalone screens, completion jewellery.
  • No exposure to the danger of dropped objects or working close to remote operated machines on drill floor – 100% Red zone compliance
  • The tool only uses very limited water volume when HP cleaning the BHA

COBRA Wash & Dope Tool

COBRA Wash & Dope Tool


Most drilling rigs have fully automated derrick and pipe handling systems. In certain regions the legislation prohibits personnel to work on the drill floor while the automatic pipe handling machines are in use. But still we experience personnel using HP cleaners and manual dope brushes when drill pipe and other tubulars are cleaned and doped prior to connection.

Facts

The COBRA can be installed in two different ways - stand alone or integrated with the pipe handling system. It can we tailor-made to fit most drill floor applications and to be used with most types of pipe handling equipment

As stand alone the COBRA is placed conveniently on the drill floor. When the DP moves from setback area towards well center the pipe handler makes a wash and dope stop. The COBRA will raise vertically and position itself embracing the DP pin end. After engaging a 360 degree sequence using HP water will wash the threads and apply dope. After a few seconds the DP can move on.

When integrated the COBRA is installed on the pipe handler/racker. The COBRA will raise to engage with the pin end and to carry out the wash and dope sequence.

Wash time and applied dope volume are PLC controlled parameters. The COBRA require power, HP water, air and dope to operate. It is ATEX certified, Zone 1, CE certification, etc. Optional choices are:

  • Dope pump stand alone. Data tracker and heat tracing available.
  • HP Wash Down Unit, integration available.
  • Supply station. Dope pump and HP Cleaner build into cabinet.

Advantages

Easy to install on the drill floor or pipe handler.

The COBRA will wash and dope the DP tool joints automatically and ensure clean threads before applying correct amount of dope.

Air-driven cylinder ensures gentle tool interaction with DP. Self-cleaning interior wash/flush sequence. Drain hose connection, no spill on drill floor. No personnel in drop zone while tripping in hole.


Benefits

Releases human resources. Personnel avoid the danger of dropped objects or working close to remote operated machines on drill floor (Red Zone).

No over torqued connections. Not taking up iron roughneck time (as when pipe doper is installed on iron roughneck).
