ABERDEEN, UK – At Offshore Europe, Gulfstream Services International has launched the Torque Through Swivel and Ball/Dart Pumping Head, a fully-automated wireless cement head system.
Bryan Duplantis, Gulfstream UK regional manager, said: “This is the only cement head of its kind to fully eliminate the need for workers to ever have to carry out the potentially hazardous task of man-riding. Using this wireless cement head means workers do not have to get into a harness to work up a derrick, which in turn also removes the risk of dropped objects.
“Our wireless system not only remotely actuates the rotating balls in the head but it also provides well control in the form of operating Kelly Valves and other functions. It operates the low torque attached to the swivel or side entry pump.”
