Now, more than ever, Volant’s casing running tools are the right tools when it comes to safety, efficiency and profitability. They incorporate multiple functions into one tool, reducing rig up and down time, equipment and personnel needed on the rig, advancing the industry toward a safer, more efficient casing running process.
Volant casing running tools are 100% mechanical requiring no hydraulic equipment. They require less manpower to operate, are run directly by the driller and need less rig floor space. These tools thread directly onto the quill of any top drive, engaging the casing below, through a torque energized radially expanding die system.
Volant continues to innovate advancing our casing running tools further by simplifying the steps required for the tool’s activation. Volant introduces ActiveSET™ technology, increasing overall speed and efficiency by providing mechanical release of the latching mechanism through set-down load only. This allows the operator to pick up the casing joint and immediately go into casing make-up.
Reduce stabbing uncertainty with Volant’s VariLINK™ Adjustable Bail Extensions. Lightweight and easy to handle the VariLINK extensions are available in configurations ranging from 18” to 11’ and up. They can bring the casing within 3”- 6” from the bottom end of the casing running tool, improving the stabbing mechanics and facilitating a smoother transition from hoist to make-up. Rated to 25 ton, VariLINK extensions are designed for use with a single joint elevator through 5/8” shackles and are large enough to be compatible with bails up to 500 ton. With more control, comes increased safety.
