Offshore Drill Line Spoolers Photos

Tulsa Power Drill Line Spoolers are designed to store and unwind rotary drill line safely and efficiently.  These high quality, innovative spoolers were developed by working closely with drilling contractors with the overall rig objectives in mind, to improve operator safety. 

The drill line spooler is powered in either direction, minimizing over-run and manual handling of the drill line promoting safer and more efficient handling.  The drill line reel is captured by the spooler, which removes the possibility of the reel coming off the stand. The spooler is designed to prevent turning of the reel when not in operation or during transport.  Offshore units are specially designed for long life in corrosive environments with offshore paint systems, stainless steel control panels, fasteners and unpainted components.  

Heavy duty, seal welded frames assure long life in the offshore oil-field environment.  Frames include certified lifting lugs and optional forklift pockets.  Bronze bearing shaft supports offer long life and easy reel change-out.  Offshore packages may be provided with ABS approved shipping slings and ABS certification.  Rig hydraulic, pneumatic and electric drives are available.  Shipping cradles to deliver full reels to the rig are available. 

A Drill Line Spooler can be designed for exact requirements.
