Features and Benefits

Standard Features and Benefits

Universal design facilitates the operational flexibility to drop multiple styles of darts or wiper balls

Large 6.625” cage ID prevents “wadding” or deformation of dart fins and mitigates fluid bypass and displacement volume discrepancies to prevent costly remedial cementing operations

Industry-exclusive LED tattle-tale enables visual and audible confirmation of dart or wiper ball release to eliminate personnel manually confirming from the rig floor

Industry-exclusive inspection port on each chamber allows for viewing inside the cement head, improving operational efficiencies by ensuring proper load out and release of darts and wiper balls

Proprietary Quik-Lock™ connection provides the industry’s fastest dart and wiper ball reloads to improve operational efficiency

High-pressure swivel facilitates high RPMs and long-duration rotation while conditioning and cementing to improve quality of cement job

Swivel can be removed from assembly when pumping cement through the top-drive to reduce overall length for various applications

Industry-exclusive ball droppers provide the ability to drop two liner setting balls, up to 3” in diameter, without adding additional chambers to the cement head

Administrative CE marking available for required environments

Optional wireless features and benefits

Includes cementing plug valve, pin pullers, ball droppers and wireless isolation valves that eliminate hydraulic umbilical lines to reduce the number of riding belt trips above the rig floor

Fully-wireless automation system eliminates the requirement to pause pumping, reciprocating, or rotating during cementing operations to enhance operational efficiencies

Manual backup on all remote-operated features ensures redundancy and risk-free operation

Continuous wireless link monitoring and radio signal filtering blocks Wi-Fi® and other wireless transmission interference for increased reliability

ATEX Zone 1, IECEx, and UL Class I, Division 2 safety certifications available for required environments
