Foam Wiper Balls
07 March 2019
I know there are several devices on the market to help install foam wiper balls. IE, Cortex applicator, Halliburton Foam ball / foam dart loader and Ray Oil Tool Jack machine. But I am curious how the innovative rig hands and roustabouts have over come the challenge of getting foam balls into the pipe with out the expensive devices.
I have seen the broom handle trick, a piece of rope wound around the ball.
What else is out there?
Michael in my experience,
We simply 'Break the string connection at the drill floor install the ball and re-make up the connection'.
What else is out there? Keep is simpler!
