Can using Wamco products save our company money?

You bet! This is accomplished by the following: 

  • Less equipment needed to complete the task. Only 1 Man, depending on Company Policy.

  • Less time required to complete the task - 8 - 12 minutes.

  • Reducing injury claims. Everyone in the "Patch" knows of someone who has lost a finger(s) or a hand, by moving (slipped) clamps, or from other injuries caused by falling off wellheads, ladders, tailgates.

  • No expensive ladders, ramps or Man Lifts required.

  • Reduce wear & tear on down-hole equipment - no more leaving a well on Tap/tag. Only minutes to tag/tap, or re-space pump.

  • Increase ROI - The first time Wamco product is used!
     

 

Has the Wamco product line undergone Engineering testing?

 

  • Yes. Acuren Testing of Edmonton, AB Canada completed the tests. Acuren is ISO certified and well known for their work in the Oil & Gas industry. 
     

 

What material is used in the making of the Wamco product line?

 

  • Spacers - Aluminum Alloy. Used because of it's lightweight & strength properties. Spacers are extruded, and heat treated so they will not shatter or "fly" apart on you. Under the worst conditions, the Spacers would simply fold. Again - Safety!

  • Adapter Plates - Mild Steel with Powder Coating
     

 

Do I require a Service Rig and/or Man-Lift equipment in order to install the Wamco Spacers?

 

  • No. Depending on your Company Policies, one Person can install the Wamco Spacers in minutes. Please refer to our Spacer Operational Procedures, located under "Products"
     

 

Do I need special Safety equipment to use the Wamco Spacer System?

 

  • No. Simply follow your Company Policy with regards to PPE requirements.
     

 

Why should I use the Wamco Suitcase/Stand-off to support the Rod String while I am installing/removing the Spacers from the Carrier Bar? Why not simply use a lower clamp to support the rod string?

 

  • The Wamco Suitcase is designed with complete safety in mind and consists of 2 - Adapter Plates & a Spacer or Spacers.

  • No danger of the Suitcase kicking out or spreading. The Plates and the Spacer(s) are locked & pinned in place.

  • Having the ability to add or removing Spacers, this concept gives you the flexibility of height required from well to well.

  • No damage to the Polished Rod from installing & removing the clamp. This relates to no damage to the Stuffing Box Packing. No dimpling of the Polished Rod.
