Casing Alignment guides
ERA Casing Alignment Guides address specific problems faced during most, if not all Casing operations especially those involving casing running and/ or drilling tools.
That is, pipe misalignment and no means of stabbing pipe in derrick or a safety policy to remove personnel from stabbing boards.
Whether its caused by wind, poor rig alignment, or simply because you are running buttress threads and that joint keeps on falling over to one side. Either way you just cant get that casing running tool stabbed into the casing box.
Misalignment and poor stabbing will cost you time in thread crossing, loss of smooth work flow and momentum and may even cost you pipe due to crossed threads or impacted couplings.
Design Simplicity - Stab 'N' Run Series
The Stab 'N' Run series acts as a removable stabbing guide, a no cross coupling and a casing running tool alignment guide all in one easy design.
It allows the casing running tool or power tong to be engaged immediately, the pipe to be aligned correctly and positively stabbed, make up to commence without crossing and all with full driller visibility of the thread making up.
With minimal weight consideration the Stab 'N' Run is easily installed and removed by the rig crew for each joint of casing.
Manufactured using either Nylon-6 or Aluminium 6061 we ensure a tough product that lasts as long as you need it.
Keep personnel away from the stabbing board with the simplest and most effective design.
Saves rig time - through correct pipe alignment
Saves rig time - compared to Volant supplied Stump Guide which is suitable only for break out of connections.
Safety - prevents CRT impacting casing coupling and potential DROPS
- removes personnel from stabbing board
Cost - small investment against cost of rig time or improved RIH speeds
Field Proven - Simple design used for many years in No-Cross Couplings and No cross stab guides. Further applications in surface flow head installations and make ups on semi subs.
Applications - Casing stabbing and alignment, casing running tool alignment, Surface Flow Tree alignment
