Antelope adds to centralizer series
Antelope Oil Tool has developed the CentraMax PI1, which is used as an alternative solution to centralizer subs in close tolerance applications.
HOUSTON– Antelope Oil Tool (AOT) has developed the CentraMax PI1, which is used as an alternative solution to centralizer subs in close tolerance applications.
The design allows for both reciprocation and rotation type applications, and is always pushed when installed between two external anchor devices. The CentraMax PI1 is to be used when the annular clearance between the casing outside diameter and restriction inside diameter are sufficient.
“Antelope's ‘to the pipe’ solution provides flexibility of placement and ease of installation by our trained installation technicians, and has a significant lower manufacturing cost when compared to industry competitor offerings. Adding the CentraMax PI1 to the series proves our continuous drive to serve our clients and their cementation needs,” said Bill Kelley, president and CEO of AOT.
The one-piece centralizer design contributes proven and effective restoring force and standoff in under-reamed hole sections, while being able to compress and pass through narrow tolerance restriction sections, resulting in low starting and running forces.
The company says the new one-piece design presents superior mechanical integrity, high yield and tensile strengths, and eliminates the potential of failure of welds. The slip-on design can accommodate virtually any casing weight, grade, and threaded connection types.
