HARRISBURG, Pennsylvania – TE Connectivity (TE) has launched its Rochester greaseless cable technology for downhole logging applications.
This downhole jacketed wireline cable solution replaces steel cables in cased hole operations. Using the Rochester branded DATEX 40 jacket material helps ensure the cable will not “birdcage” or high strand.
Additionally, the company’s Rochester greaseless wireline incorporates a specially designed steel armor package to deliver a breaking strength of 8,500 lbs.
“We’re seeing an industry migration to this type of technology in the closed hole logging cable environment,” said Nigel Read, product manager for TE’s Aerospace, Defense and Marine business unit. “Our greaseless wireline cable is designed to offer faster run speeds coupled with cleaner operations and at a lower cost of operation to our customers, compared to conventional downhole wireline products.”
• Provides a lower coefficient of friction over traditional wireline cables using a specially formulated cable jacket material
• Improves rig up and rig down efficiency
• Demonstrates faster run speeds over traditional wireline
• Provides cleaner, more environmentally friendly option over traditional downhole wireline cables.
