The Hydra-Walk system automates the pipe-handling process using a mechanical arm to lift pipe one-by-one from the catwalk and present them to the rig floor. By minimizing human interface with pipe, well service providers can increase safety for wellsite personnel and prevent damage to pipe itself. As a result, jobs are completed more efficiently and in a more cost-effective manner.
The Hydra-Walk system lessens the exposure of rig operators to injury. This means safer crews and fewer on-the-job incidents, which promotes a healthier workforce, reduces downtime and lowers overall operating costs.
Higher Job Quality
The Hydra-Walk system ensures smoother, more consistent and efficient pipe handling. The system minimizes the human element that sometimes leads to improperly stacked pipe, which can damage the body of the pipe, the collar or the threads.
The Hydra-Walk system reduces direct human interaction with the pipe. This is the driving force behind improved safety and fewer extended interruptions to production. The Hydra-Walk system was created on the premise that less downtime is vital to cost-effective project completion.
