Spooling Units

Spooling Units are utilized to deploy and retrieve capillary tubing, TEC (Tubing Encapsulated Conductor) and TEF (Tubing Encapsulated Fiber). Spools are fully contained within the Spooling Unit to prevent damage to the line on the spool at the well site and while in transit.

Each unit provides easily adjustable automatic tension of the tubing during the installment process. The Spooling Unit provide sufficient tension to spool up tubing when removal of the tubing is required.  Level wind systems are available that aid in the even wrapping of tubing on the spool.

The Spooling Unit can also be equipped with a high test and filtration pressure system. The pump system utilizes stainless steel cone and threaded high pressure tubing and fittings.  The system has a working pressure of 20,000 psi. Multi-port high pressure swivels can installed on either end of the spool shaft.

The pump system design allows pressure to be selectively applied on up to four lines at a time. Pressure on individual lines is monitored through 30,000 psi gauges; pressure can be recorded throughout the installation or during assembly testing utilizing a recorder
