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.
