Real-Time Gap Data
Once the flange tilts and jams, the powerful flange separation technique, from a drill string and draw works, becomes an effective flange jamming system. Note that well intervention may replace an old Christmas Tree, tubing or casing spool on a 30-year-old well conductor which is no longer vertical. But the upward pull is vertical and the small difference in angles increases the likelihood of a flange jam.
|Intrinsically safe||Zone Zero flange gap sensor and reflector|
|Remote display||Allows personnel to monitor the gap during the separation|
|Portable system||The system is contained in two waterproof cases and has its own internal power supply|
|Colour coded components||Sensors, reflectors and cables are all colour coded to aid identification on the screen|
Blue and yellow coloured distance measuring sensors are used to automatically calculate a flange gap. A third sensor is hidden behind the flange.
