Torque Monitoring Systems
Premium thread connections require monitoring to ensure proper make up. Our service provides equipment and personnel to monitor thread make up. 4 Star USA uses Mccoy torque turn systems, MTT, for our torque monitoring service. MTT is the upgraded Win Catt system. New features include wireless monitoring consol. Remote viewing feature that allows company man or oil representative off site to log in and view casing make up in real time. Dual processor that doubles the pulses from the turn counter for more accurate turn counting. All crew members on the rig floor will have training in both torque turns and thread rep. training.

Flush Mount Spiders
Our flush mount spider eliminates false floors, back up tongs and a good portion of the manual labour on the rig floor. This allows for fewer but more qualified crew members on the rig floor, leading to a safer and more efficient casing run. Our FMS have a range from 13-5/8 to 2-3/8 are rated to 500 ton and can hold back 45,000 ft/lbs of torque.

Clean/Drift/Tally Service
Premium casing needs to be prepped before running into the hole. This includes washing the threads, drifting the casing to confirm ID and tally the lengths and total number of casing on location. Our self-contained washing unit is equipment with a vacuum recovery system to recover contaminated water and product washed from threads reducing the environmental impact. We use Digi-Tally for our tallying functions.
