    Description

     

    The PipeCat FX delivers tubulars from the ground level to the drill floor and back. The adjustable catwalk can accommodate floor heights from 20 to 35 ft. Capable of handling Range II and Range III tubulars with diameters from 3.5 to 20 in., the tool has a lifting capacity of up to 8,000 lbs. A modular design contributes to easy transportation. When activated by the tool operator, the passive skate aids delivery of tubulars from the elevators down the trough of the catwalk. Using hydraulic operations and circuitry, the PipeCat FX offers longer duty cycle and reliability. Optic sensors automatically shut down operation when movement is detected, ensuring personnel safety.
