Power Catwalks

Features

Drillmec started its rig automation program back in the early 90’s by offering it in complete hydraulic rigs as well as single mechanization components like automatic pipe handlers or power catwalks.

Our complete portfolio of reliable automated power catwalks is easy to operate and suitable for all types of workover rigs and drilling rigs.

Power Catwalks

The catwalk transfers tubulars from the pipe racks to the drill floor, eliminating hazards and risks associated with pipe handling by conventional means and maximizing safety on the rig.

MORE CHARACTERISTICS

A notable characteristic of the APC-50 is its light weight (under 5t) which makes it easy to lift and move even with a forklift, simple to operate, as it does not require complex moves, and safe to use, as it is equipped with interlock systems and safety features that prevent accidents in moving drill pipes, tubing and even casings.  

Main features:

The wireless, remote control panel allows to operate the unit from the drilling floor or from ground level and the automatic feeding system transfers the pipe from the pipe rack to the catwalk.

The power catwalk and all associated equipment are suitable for temperature ranging from 0°C to 55°C (32 to 132°F). If necessary, an extension of the temperature range down to -40°C (-40°F) is available.

As for the medium catwalks, the APC-100 is designed for heavier hoists or shallow mobile land rigs with higher substructures. Even if the required load capacity does not vary much, the rig floor’s height affects the catwalk’s geometry, explaining the need for a different design.
