Frequently Asked Questions
WasherPlate™ is a tool for cleaning pipe during the well servicing operation.
Washing pipe removes corrosive material which improves inspection and testing to ensure damaged pipe is discovered and removed.
The soap and water can be channeled to a pit or tank for disposal or reclaimed with the use of a Containment Head™. Without a Containment Head™ the soap and water is contained in the well, then removed by other methods.
WasherPlates™ are constructed in weight categories according to string weight. Available models are T-25 (25 ton) and T-50 (50 ton). Over 50 ton available by special order.
When removing pipe, a power washer can be equipped to allow chemical injection into the spray stream. This process allows for the introduction of a safe level of beneficial chemicals to inhibit and stop corrosion while cleaning the pipe.
While installing pipe, a chemical pump can be used to apply an inhibitior directly on the pipe surface, guaranteeing 100% coverage.
WasherPlate™ cleans pipe at the well head before it leaves the well providing a safer working condition for workers handling pipe.
The cost of providing this service can be estimated the same as other similar services on a per foot basis with a minimum hourly charge plus chemicals.
The savings acquired by including this process when servicing a well are realized in longer production periods and lower servicing costs.
