Made from Ballistic nylon laminate, our heavy-duty covers are abrasion resistant and suitable for extreme environments where strength and durability are vital. Heavy-duty Velcro and sewn-on tie-down straps keep the covers in place during operation, encapsulating all moveable components into one managed unit.
It’s been proven that heavy-duty protective covers will keep your loops and hoses in the best possible condition, reducing expensive downtime and maintenance costs. Our covers protect all loop and hose components, extending their service life. Additionally, our covers hold catenary loops together in one secure bundle, making sure that any sensitive wires inside the cable loops no longer swing around uncontrollably, damaging themselves by hitting structural areas.
The cover design allows easy installation and maintenance, with the ability to inspect loops without disconnecting them or removing the cover. Our covers also go some way to solving the problem of uneven loop lengths, by manufacturing a bespoke cover with a diameter based on your rig’s loop length setup, we can accommodate and support any separation at the belly of the loop.
Our Kelly Hose cover is a smaller, simpler version of the service loop cover. The cover wraps the full hose length to cushion and protect the rubber skin. We can also manufacture a larger cover to bundle the Kelly spinner lines. Additionally, our covers protect personnel and reduce any clean-up footprint if a hose fails.
Graham Ross - Business Development Manager commented ... "We're delighted to receive this exclusive distributorship, it will allow us to offer a more complete and robust top drive service loop package. The new addition will help lengthen the operational life of all top drive service loops, Kelly hoses, and choke & kill hoses, by reducing direct surface friction and knocks, especially from Derrick hangups during operation. These covers are not pull-on sleeves, they are protective secured wraps, very easy to install, and simple to open to carry out maintenance.”
