Land Based Drill Line Spoolers Photos

Tulsa Power Drill Line Spoolers are designed to store, transport and unwind 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.  Plus reduce cycle time of rig moves.

The spoolers eliminate commonly used non-powered, shafted reel stands.  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.

Heavy duty frames assure long life with frequent move in the oil-field environment.  Standard and Tail-boardable are available; in addition, complete systems with automatic levelwind, string-up winch, and operator platform are available allowing the drilling contractor to perform full string-up and string-down operations.  The unit takes up the full string of rotary line while simultaneously moving the traveling back to its transport position, reducing the weight of the mast section for transport.

A Drill Line Spooler can be designed for exact requirements.
