HYDESSCO INTEGRATED PIPE POSITIONING OUTFIT

Hydessco has utilized our many years of pipe and tubing handling experience to develop a small, simple and efficient device that can easily navigate pipe or tubing downhole, in trenches or elsewhere.  The heart of the HIPPO is a series of hydraulically driven grooved wheels mounted on a floating traction system.  The hydraulic traction cylinders are used to apply gripping pressure and the grooved wheels drive the tubing for payoff or take up.  What makes the HIPPO unique is its small package and versatility as it can be mounted in many orientations and fitted with several key ancillary items including, counters, encoders, tubing straighteners, etc.
