  • Oil Sector – Conductor Wear Sheaves

    For over 5 years, Tufcot, in partnership with HHR Enterprise have been developing the WearSheave products to suit various oil rig conductors around the world.

    The key benefits of the Wear Sheave are:

    Fire retardant T400 Tufcot® material
    Replace unsafe wooden chocks
    Minimal wear rates – see clients comments below
    Water is an ideal lubricant
    Oil platform safety improvements
    Managing Director, Greg Majchrzak:

    “This product is an example of a major problem being highlighted in a dangerous environment and Tufcot® material being used as an ideal solution in a safer, more efficient manner. Tufcot are continuing to research and develop in many market sectors with the Oil and Gas Sector as a key growth area in years to come”
    HHR have continued to design and improve the WearSheaves with the help of the Tufcot Technical department. As every WearSheave and Oil rig is different due to varying Conductor sizes it has been imperative that Tufcot is able to produce drawings in-house. Another capability that has been developed by Tufcot through 2016.

    OMI North Sea – HHR Client

    “We have noticed a number of extra benefits apart from the protection afforded to the Conductor as they pass through the Guide, this has been the safety to personnel as we no longer have to install chocks of wood using a sledge hammer every few weeks against a Moving Caisson in the north sea the Risk to personnel is greatly reduced. We estimate after two years’ service the amount of wear we have had on the WearSheave™ will be about 10% meaning they should only need replacing every 5 years. The Wear to the caisson’s themselves has been totally arrested.” http://hhrenterprise.co.uk/what-clients-say/
