TUBING SPIDERS / FLUSH MOUNTED SPIDERS (FMS)
Offshore Energy Services, Inc. (OES) Tubing
Division stocks a variety of Spiders and Flush Mounted Spiders (FMS) for running chrome and carbon steel
tubulars. It has a complete inventory of 500 ton and 750 ton FMS with control
line openings as well as carrying 175 Ton Type “E” Air Slips and other Spiders
for tubular strings of less tonnage.
The 500 Ton
FMS has a range of slip assemblies and guides to handle 3 1⁄2” to 8” pipe. Each
die set has a grip diameter range of 1” thus being able to run tapered strings
without having to change out the die segments.
The 750 Ton
FMS has a range of slip assemblies and guides to handle 5-1/2"” – 7-5/8” pipe.
Each die set also has a grip diameter of 1” thus being able to run tapered
strings without having to change out the die segments.
power down force feature for setting slip assemblies allows the OES FMS to take
the torque reaction of the tong even when string weight alone is insufficient
to resist rotating. Also, the power down feature has the added benefit of eliminating
the need for a safety collar on the first few joints. Die sets are available
with Grit Coated and/or Straight Tooth.
The 500 Ton
and 750 Ton FMS are configured as a split bushing type tool. This permits
removal of the spider from the rotary (one half at a time) with the elevator
supporting the tubing string. Hydraulic connections are located at the top of
the spider allowing for quick connect and disconnect as well as maintenance
while in the rotary.
The 500 Ton and
750 Ton FMS features a 6” Opening for Umbilical & Control Lines. The OES
Control Line Positioning Arm mounts to the FMS for easy installation and
handling of multiple control lines and the umbilical line.
