GRIPPY® ST

Downhole Products GRIPPY Cable Clamp is a cable clamp designed to fit over the coupling to convey and secure cables and control lines in and out of well-bores quickly, safely and efficiently. This GRIPPY ST is a stainless-steel variation, that significantly reduces the risk of galvanic corrosion and provides excellent long shelf life.

Features/Benefits

  • Stainless-steel construction
  • Each collar is designed with a four point friction pad gripping system engineered to meet API pipe spec so there is no over-gripping of the cable.
  • The deformation of the flat friction pads during installation prevents damage to the cable/bundle while resisting slipping and rotation.
  • Designed to provide positive protection of cable between coupling and casing, GRIPPY ST extends the life of the control line/cable.
  • Triple progressive indents are designed on both ends of the channel to grip cables more efficiently. The top indent is slightly less pronounced than the last providing uniform compression.
  • A swan neck design on the channel allows a smooth transition of cable over the coupling. The channel length aids in eliminating crimping of cable and damage sharp edges associated with the coupling.
  • Two heavy duty hinge pin flanges make contact with the tubular adding an additional contact point for optimum gripping and protection.
  • All hinge pin seams are welded to enhance overall integrity of the assembly. The hinge design allows for quick and easy installation.

Options

  • Bespoke designs available for various cable configurations
  • Available in size ranges from 2-3/8” through 7”
  • Configured for both round and flat ESP cables, SSV’s, DHSV’s, chemical injection lines, smart well TEC’s (tubing encapsulated capillary) and fibre optics.
