Drill Floor Manipulator Arm
The Automated Rig Technologies Ltd. Floor Manipulator Pipe Arm (FMPA) offers a unique solution to tail pipe to and from well center, setback and the V-door while helping to increase site safety by removing the physical human handling traditionally done by a Floor-hand during oilfield operations. This system is engineered to work either in conjunction with a racking board pipe handler/manipulator, or with a conventional racking board and Derrickhand setup. The flexible design of the FMPA is configured to be mouse-hole or floor mounted and can be modified to operate in most triple drilling rig arrangements.
Pipe Handling – Ability for tailing up to 9″ drill collars to and from well center, setback and v-door.
Mounting Mousehole inserted, Hydraulically wedged stump or floor embedded mounting plate for new construction applications.
Operation – Hydraulic manual proportional valves (20 US GPM @ 3000 psi)
Safety – Improvement in safety can be realized as the Manipulator Arm allows for the removal of the Floorhand from the pipe tailing process.
Flexibility – Tailored to fit most triple drilling rig applications.
User Operated – Allows for real time correction by the operator during operation to avoid troubleshooting that could occur with a fully automated system.
Control – Optional electric over hydraulic proportional
