Drillform Technical Services Debuts Bulldog 90 Automated Floor Wrench Product Video

Also Announces Relocation of Its Calgary Facility

CALGARY, Alberta, Oct. 17, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Drillform Technical Services Ltd. announces commercial availability of its Bulldog 90 Automated Floor Wrench, an iron roughneck that provides superb performance, automation, and operational efficiency for drilling rigs.

“Drillform is dedicated to bringing technically advanced & practical equipment design to the oil & gas industry, and our Bulldog 90 Automated Floor Wrench is a premier example of this commitment,” said Drillform President Todd McCorriston. “It offers the most accurate and consistent torque, reduces downtime, and dramatically improves safety by removing personnel from the rotating zone.”

The Bulldog 90 features a spinner permitting up to 12” of vertical travel to accommodate a wide range of drill pipe connections and is designed to approach the pipe from four angles.  The dual cylinder tongs include sixteen dies to provide consistently accurate torque on every connection. Its full radial contact reduces slippage, tool joint wear and pipe distortion, which has become increasingly important with the prevalence of high spec drill pipe and longer laterals.

In terms of safety, the Bulldog 90 offers a hands-free wireless operating system that eliminates significant risk to rig floor personnel, as they are removed from the rotating zone, and locking pins prevent access to the rotating zone and spinning pipe. It is also equipped with a leading edge PLC system to accommodate integration into rig automation systems.  Designed with reliability and serviceability in mind, remote diagnostics allow for predictive maintenance to reduce downtime. Drillform has debuted a new video that highlights the benefits of the Bulldog 90 Automated Floor Wrench. View the video here.

Drillform also announces its recent facility relocation to Calgary’s SE industrial area, with a larger shop and yard facility to accommodate growth and demand for oilfield assembly and service. The address is 7920 56 St. SE Calgary, AB T2C 4S9.
