The Superior Safety Wrench System (SSWS) is part of the next generation of union products aimed at eliminating the use of sledge hammers in the makeup and break-out of high-pressure, temporary flowline connections. The SSWS is also a more adaptable, accurate and cost-saving option for both land and offshore operations.
Use of the SSWS will not only improve efficiency, but improve safety ratings for users. The SSWS is revolutionary to the oil and gas industry because it eliminates the risks and dangers of sledgehammer use, such as injuries from swinging sledgehammers using poor form, holding a target while it is being hammered, releasing sledgehammers midswing, and fragmenting due to a worn out sledgehammers or targets.The development of such a tool demonstrates Superior’s dedication to cultivating a safety-minded culture for the benefit of the industry.
The SSWS has been thoroughly tested internally with input from major oil and gas companies. The testing process included 1”, 2”, 3” and 4” 1502 union components torqued with SSWS, then pressure tested to Cold Working Pressure (CWP) for qualification. Wellsite testing was performed using 2” 1502 components torqued with SSWS, then pumped 7BBL of fluid at 3000psi over three days of testing resulting in passed tests with no leakage. Extensive, external field tests were conducted on 2”- 4” unions. The SSWS passed all tests.
