Top drives ensure a consistent flow of torque while drilling boreholes for natural gas or oil drilling. They come with a mechanical drive, which serves as the alternative to a rotary table drive. Top drives are essential equipment for your oil and natural gas drilling operations, and Henderson Rigs & Equipment carries a great selection of top drives, like the TDS 11 top drive. Designed for portable and permanent drilling rigs, the TDS 11 is a versatile equipment that can withstand suspension from the derrick, while maintaining the capability to powerfully swivel to turn the shaft with a minimum of 1,000 horsepower. Here are some of the important features of the TDS 11 top drive:
Safe and efficient – TDS 11 is a highly rated top drive designed to increase rig performance and safety. Drilling industry leaders swear by its reliable performance that is attributed to the 7,500-psi wash pipe assembly, a quiet gear drive, two forced air cooled 400-horsepower AC drilling motors, and hydraulic disc brakes.
Reliability – The TDS 11 top drive comes with a powered rotating head, a bail, counterbalance with a stand jump, a 10.5:1 double reduction. The on-board pipe handler has a solid body elevator that can handle up to 500 tons of weight. The dual crank upper body IBOP safety valve can be operated remotely, and the lower IBOP safety value is rated at 15000 psi when operated manually. The top drive comes with a hydraulic link tilt assembly, and lower gripping jaw to back up the torque.
Additional accessories – The TDS 11 top drive can be upgraded with additional accessories to make it capable of performing under certain types of conditions. Henderson Rigs & Equipment can provide the NC50 joint for the pipe handler. Be sure to get in touch with them to get a quote and to inquire about other equipment that can add more value to the TDS 11.
