Slip-on and crimp-on tracer carrier system
Saltel Industries launched a range of Steel Tracer Carrier subs. The principle is to provide a ‘‘slip on’’ and ‘‘crimp-on’’ tracer carrier solution
A specific and patented design was studied, enabling to easily install the tracer carrier sub around the base pipe, on-site. Its innovative crimping system allows:
- to increase the anchoring to the base pipe compared to set screws
- to ease the assembly compared to traditional welding operations
Saltel Industries drew on the Xpandable FracPacker’s crimping technology, beneficial to high demanding conditions like extreme pressures up to 15,000psi.
First, an anchoring ring (the crimped end) is slid on the outside of a base pipe (any weight or material). The ring is secured and crimped on the base pipe, demanding no previous preparation.
The tracer rods are slipped and strapped around the base pipe, then covered with carrier screens. The crimped Tracer Carrier extremities are then sealed, without weakening nor damaging the client’s base pipe.
