TYPHOON v.3

TYPHOON v.3


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.

TYPHOON v.2

TYPHOON v.2


The high level of safety at modern drilling operations require special attention to equipment. 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 when BHA is pulled through rotary and rubber wipers to clean DP string.

Facts

The TYPHOON v.2 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 HP air is connected. Actuation of water/air can be done locally on the drill floor or remotely from driller’s cabin.
