Wellhead Completion

Machine Tools for Wellhead Completion

The E.H. Wachs Split Frame cutting system is perfectly suited for wellhead applications. These machines split and install on pipe, casings, conductors, piles and round structural members of almost any size. This system will effectively cut, cut and bevel, I.D. bore and O.D. turn using supplied accessories. The Split Frame system is safe for use in most environments, and can be quickly modified using our Engineered Products division for adaptations to virtually any application.

The ECC Casing Cutter system performs fast, clean, spark-less external cold cutting on well casings from 7” to  13-3/8” I.D. (177.8 to 340mm). Featuring air or hydraulic power and requiring minimal axial and radial clearances, the ECC is based on Wachs proven split frame technology and provides easy setup and the option for remote handheld control. Self-advancing star wheel trip mechanism assures that cutting is fast and reliable.

The EICC Casing Cutter is a multi-function system that incorporates split frame technology with an I.D. cutting head.  The EICC accommodates a wide range of casing O.D.’s above the wellhead and I.D. cuts below. The Split Frame opens to mount around the casing O.D. above the wellhead and the I.D. cutting head mounts to the Split Frame to cut and/or bevel casings below the wellhead. This tool is ideal for newer wellhead designs that require an internal cut and O.D. chamfer for final wellhead installation.
