The RTS-H is a special development of the original RTS product line,
designed specifically for use with NOV’s HydraTong™ MPT-200
modular iron roughneck system.
The rig supplies the hydraulic power to the cassette via the HydraTong
service loop. The pneumatic RTS Tong Control Console is connected to
the cassette via a multi-conductor umbilical.
The system is capable of making up and breaking out a large range of
pipe sizes using three tong cassette modules to accommodate sizes
ranging from 22 inches to 4 1/2 inches. The self-contained system
supports the Frank's 7 5/8, 14 3/8, and 22 inch Casing Tong Cassettes.
The larger cassette employs an adapter carriage to allow the heavy
tong to be managed by the rig's iron roughneck. The RTS-H cassettes
hook into the rig’s MPT-200 Carriage system, which is used to transport
the cassette on/off the tubular. The HydraTong is available in two rail
widths, and the Frank’s cassette systems can accommodate either.
The driller controls the HydraTong/Cassette positioning, thereby maintaining the ZMS and ESD functionality, while the tong operator controls
the cassette’s tong and backup functions. The HydraTong can be driven
to and from the well center on the rails, and be decelerated to a stop
at the programmable well center. Vertical adjustment for the smaller
cassettes is controlled by the HydraTong.
franksinternational.com When the XT-22 cassette system is installed, a Frank's Adapter Carriage
provides the vertical height adjustment of the heavier cassette.
