Rig Floor Equipment: Remotely operated make break system ///

The T-WREX make-up break-out system from Hawk Industries, Inc. is an innovative design that incorporates the features of its HAWKJAW system into a pedestal mounted configuration for remote operation. Ideally suited to the harsh environments of offshore drilling, as well as large-scale, land-based applications, the system is available in the Junior (Fig. 1) and Senior (Fig. 2) models. Both models’ features include: * Operation by remote console * Preset torque regulator ensures proper make-up of each joint * Low-torque warning system prevents under-torqued connections * Spins and torques in under 15 seconds in most application * Infinite pipe size adjustability within working range of tool * No jaw/die changes required for different pipe sizes * Hydraulic rotation from mouse hole to rotary * Tilt adjustment for mouse-hole operations.
