Frank’s International’s top drive casing running tools (CRTs) provide operators with safe, efficient and reliable automated tubular installation in the most extreme applications. We also customize operations for land applications by combining manual and automated solutions right-sized for smaller rig sizes. Our CRTs are often equipped with the Praying Mantis® pipe pick-up arms and automated HORSESHOE® single-joint pickup elevator.
The integrity of the pipe string is maintained through Frank’s interlock system and pipe end sensors that ensure that the spider or CRT slips are alternately set so one tool is closed prior to the other being allowed to open, reducing the risk of dropped pipe.
When used in land applications, our CRTs eliminate the need for an elevator, power tong and fill-up tool. This configuration saves rig-up time and reduces the number of operational personnel required at the well center.
