PRODUCT SERVICE BULLETIN # 101

PRODUCT: Coiled Tubing

REFERENCE: Power Auto Driller (P.A.D.)

SCOPE:

To advise field locations of operational rig-up error that is commonly being made in
conjunction with P.A.D. system.

Hydra Rig is issuing this P.S.B. in an effort to help prevent this rig-up error.
Furthermore, we are providing a recommended modification to help keep this human
error from occurring.

OPERATION:

There have been recent field service reports made to Hydra Rig about injector motor
case drains leaking and injectors locking up. Hydra Rig has found after investigating
these reports that the auto driller hoses (#70 and #97) in the side of the hose reel have
been left disconnected during operation. These hoses must be connected up whenever
the injector is used, even if auto driller is not going to be used.

RECOMMENDED MODIFICATIONS:

Presently, auto driller hoses #70 and #97 have to be connected on the side of the power
hose reel after the injector is rigged up. Hydra Rig has made up a modification parts kit
to allow the auto driller hoses to be routed through the reel swivel hose replacing #2
stripper hoses. The #2 stripper hoses will be connected on the side of the reel. See
illustration on pg. 4 for swivel port numbers and location.

PRODUCT SERVICE BULLETIN # 102

PRODUCT: COILED TUBING REEL

REFERENCE: VALVE ADJUSTMENTS FOR DISH TYPE REEL

SCOPE:

To advise field operations of correct valve adjustment. These adjustments need to be


checked on existing and newly received reels.

OPERATION:

Recent field reports indicate that some reel manifold relief and back press valves
(mounted on reel skid behind Q.D. bulkhead panel ) have been readjusted. This
readjustment is happening after HR testing and not noted until the first well operation.

The most likely reason for these valves being readjusted is to facilitate tubing spooling
with equipment not set up to operate with these newer reels. It is imperative that these
valves are reset to their original settings. Failure to do so can cause problems in the
reel circuit, i.e. the levelwind metering valve (chain driven) locking up, excessive drag
(back pressure) on reel while spooling off, or reel will not keep up with injector while
pulling out of hole at a high rate.

If at any time any of these situations are encountered follow the procedures outlined in
this bulletin.

PROCEDURE FOR REEL MANIFOLD ADJUSTMENT (Ref. Drawing Pg. 3)

1. SECURE REEL WITH CHAIN BINDERS TO INSURE REEL DOES NOT ROTATE.

2. DISCONNECT HOSE FROM REEL SUPPLY HOSES (IN # 46 AND OUT # 45) TO
TUBING REEL. DIAL IN ON REEL PRESSURE ADJUSTMENT IN CONTROL
CONSOLE TO INSURE POWER PACK REEL RELIEF IS SET FOR 2500 PSI. IF
PRESSURE IS TOO HIGH OR TOO LOW, SET ACCORDINGLY.

3. ONCE REEL CIRCUIT PRESSURE IS VERIFIED, CONNECT REEL SUPPLY


HOSES TO TUBING REEL. ONCE AGAIN, DIAL IN REEL PRESSURE FROM
CONTROL CONSOLE. INSURE PRESSURE IN BOTH DIRECTIONS (REEL
DIRECTIONAL VALVE IN CONSOLE) ADJUSTED TO A MINIMUM OF 2450 PSI.
IF PRESSURE IS BELOW MINIMUM PRESSURE SETTINGS, TURN IN TO
INCREASE ON THE IN OR OUT HOLE CROSSOVER RELIEF VALVES (ITEM
5 & 8) ADJUST SCREWS. ONCE CORRECT PRESSURE IS OBTAINED SECURE
ADJUSTMENT BY TIGHTENING ADJUST LOCKNUT.

4. REMOVE 2 EA. MOUNTING BOLTS FROM REEL MOTOR FLANGE. REMOVE


MOTOR SO THE MOTOR SHAFT IS EXPOSED.

5. TO CHECK SETTINGS ON BACK PRESSURE VALVES SIMPLY INSTALL A 0 TO


1000 PSI GAUGE IN THE PRESSURE LINE TO THE LEVELWIND VALVE.
INSTALL THE GAUGE AT THE LEVELWIND VALVE. (THE VALVE HAS A P
FOR PRESSURE STAMPED IN THE CASTING OF THE VALVE.) INCREASE
PRESSURE IN REEL CIRCUIT FROM CONTROL CONSOLE. NOTE THE
PRESSURE AT THE LEVELWIND VALVE THE INSTANT THE REEL MOTOR
SHAFT STARTS TO ROTATE. PRESSURE SHOULD BE 300 + 25 PSI. NOTE:
THERE IS A SLIGHT ROTATION OF THE MOTOR SHAFT INITIALLY. THIS
ROTATION IS CAUSED BY NORMAL COMPONENT LEAKAGE.

IF PRESSURE IS INCORRECT, SET VALVES IN HOLE (#3) OUT HOLE ( # 10)


(BACK PRESSURE VALVES) ACCORDINGLY FOR THE DIRECTION SELECTED
(SCREW IN TO INCREASE OR OUT TO DECREASE).

REFERENCE: LEVELWIND ARMS, REINFORCEMENT

SCOPE:

The above mentioned part no. reels have a knee brace type support for the levelwind
arms. This support is mounted off of the reel drum pedestal. There is a single tie in
weld between the support arm and top support plate of the pedestal.

There has been field reports of this weld point cracking, and in some cases, failing.

The primary cause for this failure is the tubing oiler packing causing excessive tubing
drag. This drag resultant forces are reacted by the levelwind support arms. The
excessive drag through the oiler is caused by excessive oiler packing or tightening of
the packing.

Observation of the tubing passing through the oiler is all that is required to determine if
the packing is excessively tight. The tubing oiler will chatter and jump if the packing is
excessively tight. Typically, there will be audible chattering or squeaking noise. This
jumping action can cause the support arm weld to fatigue and ultimately, cause weld
failure.

Reduction of the amount of packing or loosening of the brass guide/packing


compression end pieces will prevent this problem.

Hydra Rig is issuing the P.S.B. to advise of this potential problem and to supply a repair
procedure.

Hydra Rig also recommends this as a modification to all indicated part no. reels. This
should be done even if there is no apparent problem. This will help ensure oiler drag or
other sources of levelwind loading will not cause support arm weld failure.

REPAIR AND MODIFICATION:

Reinforce levelwind support arm with angular gusseting.


This is accomplished by adding a gusset to the upper levelwind arm. The gusset
attachment is at the point where the levelwind arm meets the bearing mount on the
pedestal. This requires a piece of 4 x 4 square plate thick. Cut the plate diagonally
forming two triangular gussets. Install them as the following drawings show. (see
drawing on page 3)

The original weld area and box tubing structure should be visually inspected for signs of
fatigue (i.e. paint cracking), box tubing indentions, cracked welds, etc. If there are signs
of fatiguing of damage, doubler plates should be added. The doubler plates should
extend 2 above and below the damaged point(s) on both sides of each arm upright. a
4 x 4 x plate is utilized for this purpose. This doubler plate would be added prior to
adding the gusset. A quantity of four (4) doubler plates would be required. (see
drawing on page 3)

PRODUCT: DYNOMOMETER, STUSKA 400D & 800D UTILIZED ON HYDRA RIG


90K AND 180K N2 PUMPING UNITS

REFERENCE: DYNO MODIFICATIONS

SCOPE:
Stuska engineering, through research and testing, have recently made improvement to the 400D and
800D dynos. The improvements are now standard on dynos being installed on new Hydra Rig N2 Units.

Hydra Rig feels that these improvements are very beneficial to field operations. Therefore, we are issuing
this Product Service Bulletin with the information required for the field operations to make these
upgrading modifications.

MODIFICATION PROCEDURES:
The dyno modification consists of adding two (2) ports on each side of dyno housing. These ports are
added to help the dyno maintain a constant torque for sustained operation. An added benefit with these
additional ports is overall better response and control of the dyno.

These additional ports on new dynos are SAE no. 6 O-Ring ports. The ports should be fitted with 45
SAE
O-Ring by no. 6 JIC fittings. Two (2) 3/8 100R2 hoses should be connected to two (2) 3/8 NPT ports
added to the coolant fluid tank. These ports must be above water level, preferably on the top of the tank.
On dynos that do not have this modification, it is recommended the field add these ports. Page 2 defines
and illustrates these modifications. You will note that added ports are called out to be 3/8 NPT, not SAE
no. 6 O-Ring. This is done to simplify field modification. However, due to the nature of the tapered NPT
thread, caution should be used when installing the NPT fittings. These fittings, if over torqued, could
potentially cause the aluminum housing to crack.

As there are four (4) additional ports (two on each side of dyno), the two (2) correct ports to utilize are the
two on the same side as the bottom plate discharge outlet port. (These ports are actually catching the
coolant water prior to it exiting the normal discharge port.)

The fixed 1/16 orifice fitting for cooling/lubrication flow must be directed into the top vent and load port.
This must be located so flow enters the dyno. It is possible to have the 1/16 fitting orientated such that
the fluid jet stream would pass out the vent line with little water entering the dyno. Both sides (vent and
load ports) must have 1/16 orifice water flow going into their applicable port.

The preceding described the modification for 400D dyno with a single rotor housing. The 800D has two
rotor housings, thus the porting and hosing described will be double. All other information is the same for
either dyno.

PRODUCT SERVICE BULLETIN # 105

PRODUCT: COILED TUBING

REFERENCE: TUBING REEL DIRECTIONAL CONTROL VALVE

SCOPE:

The evolution of the tubing reel drive system has made it mandatory that the load check valve in
the tubing reel directional control valve be removed.

On new units, it is necessary for the load check to be removed to allow reverse flow through the
P or pressure port of the directional control valve. On the older units, the flow went across a
relief mounted on the reel skid base.

These load check valves have been removed from the new units. However, all units should be
inspected as a precautionary step. The possibility exists that a valve change has taken place
without load check removal.

OPERATION:

There have been recent field service reports about tubing reels locking up when the injector is
pulling pipe from the tubing reel. Also, the reel drive motor has been getting very hot and
making noise. This normally happens when a new style reel (see model reference numbers) is
run with an older style coiled tubing unit if the load check has not been removed.

RECOMMENDED MODIFICATIONS:

There are 2 different valves used for the directional control of the tubing reel.

1) Husco 6000 series - This valve was used in only a few units from 1980 thru 1984.

2) Commercial shearing A 20 - This valve was used widely from 1980 thru the present and
is the valve in all new units.

The modification is to remove this load check valve from the directional control valves. Some of
the units may have two or three banks or control sections, i.e. tubing reel direction, levelwind
override, reel pivot. Remove the load check from the tubing reel direction section or bank only!
The load check can be found in the particular valve as shown on page 3.

The following reel part numbers are reel designs that will not work with a load check installed in
the directional control valve:

E20HS4022 E20HS4027
E20HS4034 E20HS4045
E20HS4048 E20HS4049

CONCLUSION:

1. If there is any doubt whether there is a load check installed or not, the customer should
make a physical inspection of the valve.

2. Removing a load check from a directional control valve used with an old style reel not
requiring load check removal, will not cause a problem.

3. Inspect and remove load check(s) from any reel directional control valve installed as a
replacement of original equipment.

NOTE: The bank valve handles have been mounted upside down from the following parts
breakdown (see page 3). This has located the load check on top of the valve, and it is
not accessible unless the valve is unbolted from the control panel.

PRODUCT: HR-480 INJECTORS

REFERENCE: GRIPPER INSERT RETAINER PART NUMBER CB310067 REV. A


.
SCOPE:

TO ADVISE OF A MODIFICATION MADE TO CORRECT A WELDING PROCEDURE


FAULT ON THE PART NUMBER CB310067 RETAINER, USED ON HR 480
INJECTORS.

REASON FOR MODIFICATION:


THE ORIGINAL DESIGN WAS MEANT TO HAVE THE RETAINER PINS WELDED TO
THE RETAINER PLATE WITH A FILLET WELD.
HOWEVER, RETAINERS WERE MANUFACTURED WITH A FLUSH, FUSION TYPE
WELD. THIS FLUSH, FUSION WELD HAS PROVEN TO BE A WEAK POINT.
IT WAS NOTED BOTH AT NEW ASSEMBLY AND IN THE FIELD THAT THE PIN CAN
SEPARATE FROM THE RETAINER PLATE.
THIS TYPICALLY HAPPENS DURING INSTALLATION, WHEN THE RETAINER IS
TAPPED WITH A HAMMER. THE TAPPING CAN CAUSE THE PLATE TO SHEAR
THE FUSION WELD AND SEPARATE FROM THE PIN.

MODIFICATION:
THE RETAINER MODIFICATION HAS BEEN MADE IN TWO (2) STEPS:

STEP 1
HYDRA RIG TOOK THE EXISTING STOCK AND REWELDED THE PIN TO THE
PLATE. THE NEW WELD MORE SECURELY BONDS THE PLATE TO THE PIN.
THE WELD AREA WAS ALSO BUILT UP OVER THE PIN. THIS WAS DONE TO
TRANSMIT THE TAPPING OR HAMMERING FORCE DIRECTLY INTO THE PIN.
THE INSTALLER SHOULD STRIKE THE WELDED AREA AND NOT THE PLATE.
DOING THIS SHOULD ELIMINATE PLATE TO PIN SHEAR.

STEP 2
HYDRA RIG MODIFIED THE DESIGN TO HAVE THE PIN EXTEND THROUGH THE
PLATE AND WELD THE TWO TOGETHER WITH A 1/8 FILLET WELD. ALL NEW
RETAINERS ARE MAKE TO THIS DESIGN (SEE ATTACHED DRAWING). DURING
INSTALLATION, THE INSTALLER SHOULD STRIKE THE PIN/WELD AREA, AND
NOT THE PLATE. THIS SHOULD PREVENT WELD SHEAR ON THE RETAINERS.

PRODUCT SERVICE BULLETIN # 107

PRODUCT: HR-480 INJECTOR

REFERENCE: RETENTION OF OUT SIDE CHAIN TENSIONING AND BOTTOM IDLER


SPROCKET SHAFTS, SEE CBPSB107 MODIFICATION DRAWING
ATTACHED.

SCOPE:

To advise users of the HR-480 injectors of the potential for the outside chain tensioning
and lower idler sprocket shafts to walk out of their support bearings.

To walk means that shafts will rotate or slide within the inner race of the support
bearings. The shafts can move enough to be completely disengaged from the bearing.
The resulting disengagement can cause severe damage to the injector.

The injector damage may also result in secondary equipment and/or well damage.

MODIFICATIONS AND PREVENTIVE MEASURES:

The following describes immediate field prevention measures, permanent field


modifications, and new injector changes.

IMMEDIATE PREVENTATIVE MEASURE:

The following is designed as a temporary means to help secure the sprocket shafts until
a permanent repair can be made:

A. Inspect both outside chain tensioning and bottom idler sprocket shafts to see if
they are walking. If they have moved, loosen the locking set screws on both the
inner and outer locking ring of each bearing. Reference the attached bearing
information, which clearly shows these set screws. Using a rubber mallet or
brass drift, drive the shaft back into the correct position. Care needs to be used
to prevent damage to the end of the shaft.

Once the shafts are in the correct position, remove the lock collar set screws, and, using
a drill and drill bit slightly smaller than the set screw (approximately .38 dia.), drill into
the shaft 1/8. Then, install and torque the set screws to 30 to 35 ft./lb.

PRODUCT SERVICE BULLETIN # 107

If it is not possible to drill the shaft, the shaft should be correctly positioned, as
previously mentioned, and the set screws torqued to 30 to 35 ft./lb.

In either case, the shaft should be regularly monitored to ensure it is not walking out of
the bearing.

PERMANENT REPAIR MODIFICATION (REF. ATTACHED DRAWING NO.


CBPSB107 AND BEARING INFORMATION SHEET):

A permanent repair should be made as soon as possible. Drawing No. CBPSB107


illustrates a simple means to affect a permanent repair. The repair is straight forward
and requires little, if any, disassembly of the injector.

The following is a step by step procedure to accomplish what the drawing illustrates:

A. Center the shaft if it has moved in the bearing. Be sure to loosen both inner and
outer collar set screws on both bearings prior to centering the shaft. A rubber
mallet or brass drift should be used to drive the shaft to the center position to
prevent shaft damage.

B. Once the shaft is centered, the locking collar set screws should be torqued to 30
to 35 ft./lb. Be sure and torque both inner and outer lock collar set screws.

C. With the shaft centered and secured by the set screws, the half keys* (Items 1, 2,
and 3 on drawing CBPSB107) are ready for installation. Prior to installation of
the half keys, a small diameter rod (I.E. 1/8 welding rod) should be inserted into
the key way to determine actual length required for each individual half key.
When determining this dimension, the half key length should leave enough room
to make a full 3/16 fillet weld within the confines of the key way.

*The above described half keys are actually mild steel flat bar. The CD1018 in
the drawing description is referring to cold drawn ASTM A108 OR UNS G10180
material.

These half keys should be precut to the individual key way required dimension. The
dimensions shown on the drawing are for reference only. Sharp corners and edges
should be removed to allow easy installation.

PRODUCT SERVICE BULLETIN # 107

The half key should be tapped into the slot with a small hammer. It is recommended
that the key be lubricated to aid installation. Care should be taken not to damage the
half key or key way. A small round punch may be utilized to drive the key the last 1 or
so to prevent damaging the key or key way. The half key, when installed correctly,
should rest against the original full key and have about 1/4 open key slot between it
and the end of the shaft.

With the half key installed, 3/16 fillet weld is applied, welding the half key to the shaft.
This weld area should be cleaned (residual lubrication removed) prior to welding. The
weld must be kept below the top of the key way to allow bearing removal. A low
hydrogen (7018-7020) type welding rod should be utilized for the weld. Both the shaft
and half key are mild steel so no special welding procedures are required. During the
welding process, the ground lead of the welding machine should be connected to the
sprocket/shaft that is being welded on. This will prevent ground arcing damage to
critical components (I.E. bearings, cylinders, and motors).

NEW INJECTOR AND REPLACEMENT SHAFTS:

On the new injectors or replacement shafts, the key way will be milled into the shaft only
in the area the key way of the sprocket and shaft line up. This will eliminate any future
necessity of installing the half keys.

SUMMARY:

The preceding outlines a temporary measure to help prevent shaft walking and a
permanent repair. The temporary measure should be monitored regularly to ensure that
the shaft is staying secured. The permanent repair should be conducted at the first
opportunity possible.

If there are any questions about this PSB or other areas of the HR-480 injector, please
contact Hydra Rig Service or Sales Departments with your inquiry.

PRODUCT SERVICE BULLETIN # 109

PRODUCT: HR-480 INJECTOR

REFERENCE: TRACTION TIE RODS

SCOPE:

On some of our earlier model 480 injectors, there may have been a tolerance problem
between the chain links and the traction tie rods.

During dynamic conditions, the chains may be contacting these rods, which in turn
creates a groove in the tie rod.

To inspect these rods, simply loosen rod end retainer bolts. Rotate rod (item #1 on the
drawing) and inspect for any noticeable wear patterns. If rods are undamaged, ensure
to retorque retaining bolts to minimum 350 ft. lbs.

PRODUCT SERVICE BULLETIN # 110

PRODUCT: 480 INJECTOR

REFERENCE: GOOSENECK MOUNT

SCOPE:

Being that the upper frame weldment for the gooseneck mount is symmetrical, we wish
to emphasize that the swivel mount can be installed backwards. Inspect gooseneck
mount to ensure bearing swivel is mounted correctly. Refer to attached page for details.

Note: Ensure Item 2, which is a 5 width plate, is facing the reel (item 1 is a 3
plate).

OPERATION:

Proper adjustment of gooseneck should include adjustment of item 3, which will include
adjusting your bearing carrier either forward or backward, depending on the pipe size.
Item 4 is to adjust the gooseneck forward or backward, once again, depending on pipe
size. Centerline of the swivel bearing should be set forward (toward reel) slightly off the
centerline of the injector chain. When gooseneck is adjusted properly, the tubing will
pass through the center of the swivel bearing, and the natural arc of the tubing will
contact both sets of chains at the same time.

PRODUCT SERVICE BULLETIN # 112


PRODUCT: 480 INJECTOR

REFERENCE: GOOSENECK MOUNT ADDITIONAL SUPPORT


For tubing through 3.5, under normal working conditions the gooseneck mounts should
never exceed their rated capacity of 3000 lb. Line pull using a 100 gooseneck. Should
the line tension exceed 3000 lb. pull, the gooseneck mount becomes the forgiving point
within the injector structure.

In cases where line tension exceeds 3000 lb. pull, intermittently or continuously, Hydra Rig
has designed a support structure for the gooseneck mount. This structure, if applied and
properly adjusted, will increase the load capacity of the gooseneck mount from 3000 lb. to
7500 lb. of line pull.

The following pages include dimensional drawings of the goose neck mount support to aid
in the fabrication of the components.

INSTALLATION:

1. Assemble upper and lower mounts prior to installing them into position (fig. 4 and 5).

2. Weld upper mount into position (fig. 1A).

3. Hang two (2) struts from upper mounts by using two (2) 1 diameter 2.5 long pins (fig.
1A).

4. Attach bottom mount to both struts.

5. Position bottom mount between each frame uprights (fig. 1A) and weld into place.
NOTE: INSURE ROD ENDS (FIG. 1, ITEM 7 AND 8) ARE SCREWED IN PRIOR
TO WELDING BOTTOM STRUT SUPPORT.

6. Once all weldments are complete, extend struts approximately 0.5 to provide and
ensure support to the gooseneck mount tail section. Lock into position (fig. 1A, item 3).

Using rod ends as shown (fig. 1, items 7 and 8) would allow you to maintain maximum
swivel capabilities of the gooseneck mount.

Any questions concerning this application should be forwarded to the Hydra Rig Service
Department.

PRODUCT:

REFERENCE: Coiled Tubing Right Angle Gear Drive Reels

SCOPE: It has come to Hydra Rigs attention that during Coiled Tubing Operation
that the drive sprocket fell off the 90 reel drive. This was caused by the
sprocket retaining bolt working loose, allowing the sprocket to walk off the
end of the splined drive shaft and possibly a misalignment of the drive and
driven sprocket.

REPAIRS REQUIRED:

1. Remove sprocket retaining bolts, clean bolts and drive shaft bolt holes threads.

2. Reinstall bolts using retainer (P/N CB460219) and locktite to 18 ft. lbs. of torque.

3. Tighten all angle drive mounting bolts to 55 ft. lbs. of torque. Insuring lock
washers are in place.

4. Check the sprockets alignment. Align by adjusting the mounting plate and at the
same time adjust proper chain tension.

5. Rotate reel without guard on to insure alignment and chain tension is correct.

This procedure should be performed on an annual bases after initial inspection.

See Attached Drawing.

PRODUCT SERVICE BULLETIN # 115

PRODUCT: HR480 Injector

REFERENCE: Injector Drive Case

SCOPE:

Hydra Rig has made various improvements to the design of the 480 Drivecase since its
inception in 1993. This PSB is intended to communicate potential problems and
recommended upgrades to prevent these problems.

BACKGROUND:

It has been observed during field service that some of the earlier design drivecases can
experience excessive case deflection under high tubing loads, causing motor
misalignment. This condition sometimes causes high drive motor case leakage,
resulting in diminished slower speed control. Later designs use a new symmetrical
valve motor, which eliminate the problems associated with preferred rotation. However,
the new motor is more sensitive to alignment and deflection, so case leakage is more
pronounced. The current drive case design addresses these problems and minimizes
internal motor leakage, providing smoother, more controlled operation at high tubing
loads, especially at slow speeds.

UPGRADE:
Hydra Rig is offering a one-time exchange program through April 1, 1997, through
which the customer can upgrade their injector drivecase to the latest design, and in
some cases, Hydra Rig will credit the customer for returned cores.

Following are the three different drivecase configurations, and how they will be
addressed.

301103/17396 1256/18265

The original 480 drivecases built until mid 1994 used a non-symmetrical Poclain motor
with an internal valve design which would tolerate greater misalignment, thus motor
case leakage under high loads was less apparent. These early motors were also a
hydrabase design with the sealing plate built into the drivecase. To upgrade to current
drivecase design using existing motors, shipping seal plates are required. This upgrade
package, including remanufactured drivecase, gears, shafts, sprockets, new bearings,
new seals, shipping plates, and associated hardware is available at a cost of $32,000
F.O.B. Fort Worth, TX. Type A cores are not rebuildable and no credit will be issued
for returned cores.

3276/25204 3278/25320 3293/27848 1277/25354

These cases were similar to Type A cases, and were built from mid 1994 to late 1995.
The Type B case also used non-symmetrical motors, but had shipping seal plates and
reinforced drivecase structures. The shipping seal plate permits the motor to be
delivered from Poclain as an assembly and permits easier field removal and servicing.
This upgrade package does not require shipping seal plates, and includes
remanufactured drivecase, gears, shafts, sprockets, new bearings, new seals, and
associated hardware for a cost of $32,000 F.O.B. Fort Worth, TX. A credit of $8,000 will
be issued upon return of Type B cores.

PRODUCT: HR440 injector

REFERENCE: Inside traction System

It has come to HRIs attention that the traction system used on some 440 injectors is
much too sensitive to being adjusted properly. To the point that only minor
maladjustment will greatly reduce the systems ability to grip tubing properly.

To correct this potential problem, HR has designed a traction system that is more user
friendly in that adjustments are not needed after initial setup. This upgrade is not
applicable to all 440 injectors. To find out if your injector is affected, complete the
attached response form and return it to HR. We will contact you upon receipt of the
response form. Kit #CA360022

PRODUCT: All Hydra Rig Injectors

REFERENCE: Retrofit to electronic load cells

In keeping up with the electronic age, many Hydra Rig customers are replacing existing
hydraulic load cells with electronic load cells. This does not present any problems as
long as it is done correctly.
When you install the electronic load cell, you must ensure that the vertical center line of
the chains is perpendicular to the injector base when the load cell is at its zero position.
This will ensure that the tubing will pass through the injector in a straight line.
If you do not do this, not only will the weight readings you get be inaccurate; you also
run the risk of severely damaging the injector. If you have any questions or would like to
discuss your retrofit with us please contact us at:

PRODUCT SERVICE BULLETIN # 119


PRODUCT: High pressure open loop power packs

REFERENCE: Directional control spool


We have learned that due to conditions beyond our control the spool used in the
Denison directional control valve utilized on this type power pack is not configured as
we intended. The spool should be configured so that ports A and B are drained to port
T through orifices when the injector control in the operators cabin is shifted to the
neutral position.

We now are aware that some spools were installed that blocked ports A and B causing
a condition where there would be trapped pressure between the injector and the power
pack. It is not known exactly what this will cause, but it could increase the chances of a
run away condition occurring. To check the spool in your power pack quickly and easily
the following can be done.

1. Connect the control cabin to the power pack as normal.


2. Do not connect the 1 inch hoses to the injector. Instead install a 5000 psi
gauge in the end of each of the hoses.
3. Start the power pack and pressure up the hydraulics.
4. From the control cabin shift the injector directional control to the in-hole position.
5. Dial in on the injector motor pressure control until 3000 psi is reached
6. After the injector system has 3000 psi on it shift the injector directional control
back to the neutral position.
7. The 3000 psi should begin to bleed off. If after 20 seconds the hoses are still
pressured up the spool must be changed.

If you discover that you have the incorrect spool in your power pack, if you will contact
us we will supply you with the correct spool at no cost to you, provided that you send
the incorrect spool back to us. When we supply you with the correct spool we will supply
you with the information needed to complete the change out. The change out of the
spool is very simple and can be done in a hour or less.

PRODUCT SERVICE BULLETIN # 120

PRODUCT: Hydra Rig 400 Series Injectors

REFERENCE: High Pressure Applications

Introduction
Coiled tubing is being used more and more in high pressure well applications. Coiled
tubing and associated service equipment was designed for this application, but it must
be operated within its design limits for successful results. Many new coiled tubing
operators are being trained and are entering the workforce. As the high pressure trend
progresses, it is imperative that both coiled tubing job planners and coiled tubing
operators fully understand issues concerning:

Coiled tubing mechanical strength and burst / collapse ratings


Injector operation
Maintenance
Complex jobs

If these issues are not fully understood and addressed, the consequences could be
catastrophic.

Coiled tubing strength limitations:


In a high pressure or live well application, coiled tubing can be subject to collapse
pressure. Allowable collapse pressure decreases as the pipe is worked through the reel
and gooseneck causing it to become more oval in cross section. Normal operating
procedures call for pressure to be applied inside the coiled tubing at the reel so that
rated collapse pressure is never approached. If a collapsed section of pipe ever
reaches the injector in a pipe light situation, the injector can loose grip and the pipe will
blow out of the well.

Injector operation:
In typical no or low pressure applications, standard operating procedure is to minimize
chain tension and traction pressure which maximizes chain and injector life. However,
in a high pressure (snub or pipe light) application, the primary consideration is to hold
onto the pipe and safely complete the job. Chain tension recommendations for a snub
situation as found in operating manuals must be followed. A safety factor should be
applied to recommended traction pressure for pull to insure that pipe is never allowed to
slip under any conditions. The coiled tubing operator should never adjust traction
pressure in a pipe light situation by allowing pipe to slip and then adjusting traction
pressure.

PRODUCT SERVICE BULLETIN # 120

Charts addressing traction pressure specifically for a snubbing situation are being
distributed for the 440 and 480 injectors as part of Product Service Bulletin # 120.
These charts are based on new injector inserts on new, oiled pipe. As pipe and other
components wear or as foreign material such as grease or spherical frac sand is
introduced, coefficients of friction change. It is the operators responsibility to insure
that sufficient traction pressure is utilized to prevent any slippage under actual operating
conditions.

Maintenance:
Proper coiled tubing equipment maintenance is important in any operation, but it is
absolutely critical in a high pressure application. Stretched or worn out injector chains
that allow the chain tensioning cylinders to bottom out cannot be tolerated. Seal
components in the BOPs must be functional and tested at least to maximum pressure
anticipated on the job. In short, the injector, BOPs, and hydraulic system controlling
them must be maintained in top condition. Hydra Rig service technicians are available
to assist in this effort.

Complex jobs:
Some coiled tubing jobs can become complex and difficult to understand either in the
planning or execution stage. Various combinations of forces or pressures can interact
to create uncertainty. Any high pressure coiled tubing job should be planned and
executed with the same care and attention to detail as a snubbing job. Hydra Rig
service technicians or engineers can assist with information regarding Hydra Rig
equipment. Hydra Rigs sister company, CTES, L.C. (Coiled Tubing Engineering
Services) can assist with engineering services related to the combined effects of ovality,
fatigue, buckling, burst, collapse, and tensile loadings.

Attached are packets to be added to your 440 and 480 manuals. The packet contains a
snub vs. traction pressure chart and an example of how to read the chart. If you have
any questions or need further assistance, please contact the Service Department at
Hydra Rig.

PRODUCT SERVICE BULLETIN # 121

PRODUCT: Tubing Reel, right angle drive

REFERENCE: Cargo handling

Purpose:
This PSB provides inspection, protection, and upgrading of Hydra-Rigs 4000
series tubing reels.

Introduction/History:
There has been an incident of a tubing reel drive failure on a 4000 series-tubing
reel. The failure occurred because the load binders supplied on the reel were not
used to mechanically lock the reel to the frame during transportation. As the reel
rocked back and forth, shock loads from the rotational inertia acted through the
reel drive chain and caused the right angle drive to fail at the output housing. This
failure caused the drive to lock up and fail the drive chain.

This reel is designed so that the spring-actuated brake is supplied with no hydraulic
pressure in the system. It is either on or off. The brake is a parking brake used to
hold the reel from rotating when the injector is stopped during the coiled tubing
operation. It is not a dynamic brake and was not designed for shock loading as
encountered during transport.

Safeguards:
1- Ensure that the load binders are in use and tightened correctly for
transportation or storage. The rear load binder should be tightened first
to take the load off the drive and brake and then the front binder should
be secured to prevent reel rotation during transport.
2- Visually inspect the output housing of the reel drive prior to operation.
3- Perform periodic NDE (magnetic particle inspection) to prove structural
integrity on the output housing.

Upgrade:
An upgraded right angle drive may be purchased to provide increased
safety factor in the right angle drive out put housing. This kit will not
eliminate the need for use of load binders during transport, but will increase
overall fatigue life of the assembly.

PRODUCT: HR480 Injectors (all versions)

REFERENCE: Retainer Bar CB370266

The retainer bar was originally designed into the 480 injector as an aid in assembling
the skate system. The intention was for the retainer to hold the skate hangers in place
so that the skate could be lowered into place between the hangers. As an assembly aid,
this feature is not really necessary, and for field redress, the change-out of the skates
would occur with the drive case mounted to the injector and the retainer bars would
have to be removed.

There can also be clearance problems between the retainer bars and the hydraulic
fittings that transmit hydraulic pressure to the traction cylinders. Notches in the retainer
bars are designed to provide clearance between the fittings and the retainer bars. If
improper assembly occurs, the fittings can contact the retainer bar and cause the fitting
to fail upon the application of pressure to the traction system. This interference could
also cause the traction cylinder to cock that could cause uneven loading to the skate.

The retainer bars add no structural integrity, and have proven not to be useful as an
assembly aid. Additionally, if assembled incorrectly, the retainer bars could cause
problems in the traction system. Therefore, Hydra Rig recommends that the retainer
bars be removed from all 480 injectors as soon as possible.

There are four retainer bars on each injector. One attached at each skate hanger area.
(see illustrations). There are four half-inch bolts attaching each retainer bar. Remove all
four bolts and discard the retainer bars.
If your injector is currently working on a job a quick inspection will determine if there is
interference between the retainer bar and the hydraulic fittings. If there is no
interference continue the job as you are and remove the retainer bars at your earliest
opportunity.
If you are unsure about where the retainer bars are on the injector or have any
questions regarding the removal of the retainer bars please contact us before you
proceed.

PRODUCT:

REFERENCE: HR480 TRACTION RETROFIT KIT CC365636

As a result of recent developments and widespread use of higher strength, heavier wall
large diameter coiled tubing, Hydra Rig has developed an improved traction beam
system to handle the increased loads imposed by this pipe. For those operating
HR480s, a kit has been designed to retrofit existing injectors.

The new traction system consists of newly designed traction beams (CC365287) and tie
rods (CC375252). These new traction system components are designed as a single unit
and are thus required to be used together for proper functioning (mixing of old traction
system components with new is prohibited). Additionally, all six sets of beams and rods
must be replaced. The traction beams are of a cast design that maximizes the bending
strength of the beam and minimize the defections under load. The tie rods are
constructed of high strength steel and are designed to maximize the clearance between
the tie rod and chain assembly while providing the structural strength required for this
service.

This system will retrofit all HR 480 injectors built after October 1993.

The kit part number CC360075 consists of:

(12) Traction Beams (CC365287)


(12) Traction Rods (CC375252)
(24) Nylock Nuts (BFN00041)
(24) Tube Bushings (CB360137)
(12) HHCS 0.50 x 6.0 Lg. (BFC00607)
(12) 0.50 Lock Washer (BFW0005)
(12) 0.50 Washer PL Type B Series R STL (BFW00035)
(1) Installation blueprint (CC365636)

The list price for the kit is 3400.00USD, but until November 30, 1999 the kit will be sold
at half price 1700.00USD. Any kits ordered after December 1, 1999 will be at full price.

To get this price reduction you must supply Hydra Rig with the serial number of the
injector that you are planning on using the kit on. If you are purchasing the kit for spares
we also need that information.

PRODUCT SERVICE BULLETIN # 124

PRODUCT: HR440 Injector

REFERENCE: Brake spacer spool plumbing


All HR440 injectors built prior to December 1, 1999 were built plumbed so that the motor
case drain is routed into the spacer spool between the brake and the drivecase. This
was done to allow leakage from the brake seal to make its back to the hydraulic tank
through the case drain hose. Plumbing the spool in this manner made it necessary to
seal the area between the drive shaft and the brake shaft. Because of very low pressure
and the design of the joint this area is very difficult if not impossible to seal and to make
the seal last for an extended length of time. There are two major disadvantages of
plumbing the injector in this manner.

1. The seal between the drive shaft and the brake shaft fails frequently which gives
the appearance that the injector brake shaft is leaking large quantities of oil and
is on the verge of failure, when actually the case drain oil is what is leaking.

2. There is no physical evidence that can be seen by the operator that the brake
shaft seal is leaking and is in need of attention.

To correct both of these problems we have changed the way we plumb the 440 injector.
The spacer spool between the brake and the drivecase is no longer plumbed into the
case drain of the motors. It is now plumbed to atmosphere via stainless steel tubing.
The tubing is formed so that the end is inside the injector center section. A flow of
hydraulic fluid coming from these tubes indicates that the brake shaft seals are leaking
and are in need of maintenance.

To make this modification to heads already in the field the following steps should be
taken.

Locate the .25 inch case drain hose that connects to the spool. It will be about halfway
between the brake and the drivecase on the top side of the spool. Remove this hose
and the adapters that are screwed into the spool. Trace this hose to find the other end.
Remove this end of the hose as well from its fitting and replace it with a .25 inch JIC
cap. A brass or steel cap can be used as this will always be low pressure. Connect one
of the formed tubes to each spool using the required adapters. Discard the hose that
was removed.

See the illustrations for instruction on how to form the tubes and for how to install the
tubes.

PRODUCT: HR440 Injector

REFERENCE: Rail type inserts and carriers

As of January 1, 2000 HR discontinued production of the rail type carrier for the 440
injector. Our intention is to standardize on one style, the clip style of insert and carrier.
This will eliminate confusion when ordering parts from the field and insure correctness
of spare parts shipments as well as reduce inventory for those locations that run both
rail and clip style.

Rail type inserts will remain available until June 30, 2000.
If your injector utilizing rail type carriers is less than six months old, or if you have
purchased a replacement rail type chain assembly in the past six months, we offer the
following two plans to get you converted over to clip type inserts and carriers.
1. We will provide you with a blue print that will enable you to modify the rail type
carrier to accept clip type inserts. Note that when this machining process is
completed, the carrier will accept both rail and clip type inserts. The first set of clip
type inserts that you order will be reduced in price by 600.00$ to offset the cost of
this modification.
2. We will send you a set of modified carriers in exchange for your rail type carriers.
HR will modify the carriers and continue the exchange program. Note that the
carriers sent back must be in good condition and are subject to inspection. Any
carriers that are not usable will be returned to the supplier.

If your injector is older than six months we will supply you with a blue print that will
enable you to modify your rail type carriers to accept the clip type inserts. You can
disassemble your chains and send the carriers to HR and we will modify them to accept
the clip type inserts for a cost of $8.50 each. If the entire chain is sent you will be
charged labor for disassembling and reassembling the chain.

After June 30, 2000 Hydra Rig will no longer manufacture rail type inserts. Please take
advantage of this offer and allow yourselves time to prepare for this discontinuance.

PRODUCT SERVICE BULLETIN # 126

PRODUCT: Hydra Rig Coiled Tubing units and Nitrogen units

REFERENCE: Hydraulic Tank Assembly

Over the past several years HR has been incorporating the Denison P-16 pump into the
design of our Coiled Tubing units as well as our Nitrogen units. One of the problems
that exist with using this pump is that they must be supercharged with oil because of
their inability to suck oil from the hydraulic tank.

To correct this Hydra Rig uses a check valve and a relief valve that are mounted inside
the hydraulic tank. Oil is returned into the P-16 from other circuits to produce this
supercharge pressure. The relief valve in the tank keeps the supercharge pressure from
over pressurizing the system and the check valve is arranged so that if the pump needs
to suck oil momentarily it can do that.

We have been made aware of two instances where this plumbing inside the hydraulic
tank has come off or was found to be loose. When this occurs the supercharge pressure
is lost and pump cavitates. This being a piston pump even slight cavitation will cause
damage.

HR is taking measures on future units to see that this problem is not encountered. To
see that units currently in the field do not develop this problem, we ask that all locations
that have a unit using a P-16 inspect the unit to ensure that the valves in the tank are
still tight.

There are two drawings attached to this PSB. They depict the most common
arrangement for the relief valve and check valve that are mounted inside the hydraulic
tank.

N2 hydraulic tank: 180K units using a single P-16 pump.


CTU hydraulic tank: Coiled Tubing Power Pack.

If either of the valves is found to be loose they must be tightened to ensure that they do
not come completely off during operations.

PRODUCT SERVICE BULLETIN # 126

To correct loose valves the hydraulic tank must be drained to a level below the valves
and fittings that the valves are threaded on. After the tank level is lowered remove the
valves and clean both the internal and external threads to remove all oil. The relief valve
can be replaced using pipe sealant that you would normally use for any other pipe
connection. Remember that this connection will be below the oil level in the tank and
cleanliness is a must. After the sealant is applied tighten the relief valve as tight as
possible using a pipe wrench on the lower part of the valve. Do not use the hex on the
cap to tighten the entire valve. If the check valve is loose, remove it from the pipe nipple
it is mounted on and clean both the internal and external threads. On the end of the
valve that the pipe nipple threads into drill and tap a hole for a -20 set screw or
equivalent on three of the wrench flats. Again use pipe sealant before reinstalling the
check valve. After the valve is tight on the pipe threads tighten the three setscrews.
Refill the hydraulic tank and resume operations.

PRODUCT: HR560, HR580 and HR5100

REFERENCE: Maximum Allowable speed of variable speed injectors

Hydra Rig has a new line of injector that incorporates a variable displacement motor into
the drive system. In the past all HR injectors have used motors that have a high gear
and a low gear.

The drive system for the new design injector is a variable displacement piston motor
through a sandwich type brake into a deep reduction gearbox. The maximum speed for
the new design HR440G and the HR560 is 200 feet per minute. Over speeding will
cause damage to the brake and drive system.

There are some HR Coiled Tubing units that are capable of over speeding the injectors.
For instance, If you had one of the variable speed injectors that was set up to run 200
FPM with a supply of 90GPM and you coupled this injector to a closed loop power pack
that uses a Denison P-14, that is capable of supplying 120 GPM to the injector you
would have the capability to over speed the injector by a great deal.

Because of this possibility, we suggest that anytime the variable speed injector is
moved from one unit to another or to a power unit that is not manufactured by HR, that
a test be run to determine if the unit is capable of running the injector at speeds in
excess of maximum.

To test the injector, first connect it to the CTU. Plug in all hoses. Paint or otherwise mark
one chain pin so that each revolution of the chain can be counted when running at
maximum speed. Start the engine and increase the RPM to 1800. Make certain that the
chain traction circuit is bled off to 0-PSI. Apply 150-PSI chain tension pressure. Shift the
injector directional control all the way in either direction. Screw in the injector motor
pressure control until the chains stop increasing in speed. With a stop watch, measure
the amount of time it takes to turn 10 complete revs. If this time is less than 34 seconds,
the injector is over speeding. Repeat the procedure only shift the injector in the other
direction. The speed should be the same in both directions.

The Rexroth motors used on the injectors have adjustments on them that allow the
minimum and maximum displacement to be set so that the motor will operate in a
specific range. These adjustments cannot be made in the field. The adjustment will
come with a factory-installed cap on them. The cap cannot be removed without damage

to the cap. Any warranty claims on injectors with this cap removed or damaged will be
denied.

Although the speed of the injector can be limited by the amount that you shift the
injector directional control, we recommend that you limit the amount of flow that the
hydraulic pump is capable of sending to the injector. All hydraulic pumps that we have
used that are capable of 5000-PSI have flow limiters on them. If you find that you have
the capability to over speed your injector contact HR service department for instruction
on how to limit the flow your pump is capable of sending to the injector. Please have the
serial number of your power pack handy before you contact us.

PRODUCT: 180 K nitrogen pumping units

REFERENCE: Denison P16 H Hydraulic Pumps


It has been brought to our attention that this hydraulic pump may overheat during long
periods of idling. For 180 K nitrogen units, this pump is configured such that it is not a
pressure compensated pump, which means that there is very little flow through the
pump case when the pump is idling for extended periods or when not driving the triplex
pump.

Denisons solution to this problem is to add a flushing and cooling circuit that consists of
a .25-inch hose from port AG to port DG on the pump. A kit will be sent to every
location where one of our 180K nitrogen units are located.

This kit will consist of:


Qty. 1 - .25 inch hose 15 inches long straight on one end 90 degree on the other end
Qty. 1 - .25 o-ring X .25 MJIC 90 degree fitting
Qty. 1 - .25 inch o-ring by .25 MJIC tee.

These parts are to be installed as per the attached illustration and the unit may be
placed back in service.

PRODUCT: Hydra Rig 500 series injectors


HR560, HR580, and HR5100

REFERENCE: Input pinion bearing operating temperature


A catastrophic failure has occurred with an HR580 injector. Control of the tubing was lost due to a
failed gearbox input pinion bearing allowing the input pinion to disengage from the first driven gear.
The motor and brake on the 500 series injectors are connected to the inputs of the gearbox and thus
are connected to the chain through the gearbox. The injector can and will freewheel if gear
engagement is lost.
As on most coiled tubing rig-ups these days, this injector was rigged up fairly high and there was
other equipment such as cranes and pump units sitting next to the CT unit operating, making it nearly
impossible for the operator to hear the injector running. In this failure, there was an area of charred
paint in the bearing housing, but this area is situated 90 degrees from the operators line of view to
the injector.
The cause of this bearing failure has not yet been determined, but studies into this are ongoing at
Hydra Rig, the gearbox manufacturer, and at the bearing manufacturer. While this injector had
several million feet on it, the bearing use before failure was only a portion of what its full life should
have been.
In an effort to keep this from happening on other injectors, Hydra Rig is supplying a stick on
temperature indicator for every 500 series injector in the field.
This temperature sticker is to be placed on the gearbox close to the input pinion bearing. If this
sticker changes colors it indicates that the bearing has failed and the injector should be shut down
immediately. At that point, Hydra Rigs Service department should be notified by phone, fax, or
email.

PRODUCT SERVICE BULLETIN # 130

PRODUCT: Coiled Tubing Power Packs and Nitrogen Units Supplied by HRUK

REFERENCE: 3 and 4 Butterfly Valves

It has come to our attention that in some instances the 3 and 4 inch butterfly valves
used to isolate the suctions on hydraulic tanks on some Coiled Tubing Power Packs
and Nitrogen Units may have been inadvertently supplied with the incorrect seal or seat
material. When exposed to hydraulic oil the seal or seat material can prematurely
deteriorate and cause failure.

We recommend that the seal or seat material be checked as soon as possible.


The seal or seat material can be identified by checking the tag on the stem of the valve.
The seal or seat material should be noted as NBR on the tag. If the tag has NBR on it
no further action is required. If the seal or seat is noted as EPDM on the tag or cannot
be identified please contact Hydra Rig UK Service Department with the size and
quantity of the valves you have with the incorrect seal or seat material. A replacement
valve will be supplied to you.

PRODUCT SERVICE BULLETIN # 131

PRODUCT: HR580, HR560, and HR440G injectors

REFERENCE: Gearbox bearings

A problem has been discovered in Hydra Rig HR580 injector gearboxes manufactured
by one of our suppliers. The problem results in inadequate lubrication to the bearing on
the input pinion opposite the drive motor and brake. In operation, the bearing can
literally pump itself dry. This condition can eventually cause failure of the bearing
depending on many factors, including speed, gearbox footage, loading, temperature,
lube oil level, and maintenance. If left unattended the bearing failure can cause the input
shaft to disconnect from the secondary gears, which will allow the injector to
freewheel.
Although each individual gearbox has the possibility of this bearing failing, field
history of the injectors has shown that damage progresses slowly, and is in fact
uncommon. For these reasons we are not recommending that the injectors be taken out
of service. However, we are recommending that the following actions be taken as soon
as possible.

First Priority: HR580 Gearboxes

Injector Information & Inspection Survey


It is imperative that the survey (enclosed) be completed for every HR580 injector
in your fleet. The completed forms should be sent to Hydra Rig following the
instructions on the form. These forms will be used to produce a schedule to get
your injector inspected and/or upgraded. After receipt of your form, we will
contact you and arrange for a technician to come to your location. We may also
ask that you make simple modifications that will help with the bearing lubrication
until we can get there.

Hydra Rig will inspect and/or upgrade the bearing lubrication on all HR580 injectors in
the field that we have an information form on. Completing the information form on your
injector is the most reliable means to be sure your injector is scheduled. All of the
inspections/upgrades combined will take about 8 hours once the injector is in a location
where we can work on it. To complete the work, we must remove the outer protection
frame, drain the gearbox, and lay the injector on its side. The serial number of the
gearbox and injector will determine what needs to be done to make sure your injector
has all the upgrades. These actions will be taken under Hydra Rig warranty. All injectors
with a ship date after the published date of this PSB will have all the latest upgrades.

Second Priority: HR440G and HR560 Gearboxes

We have not experienced any freewheel type failures with the HR560 or HR440G
injectors in the field. HR440G injectors have been in service since January 1999 and
HR560 injectors have been in service since January 2001. However, a similar bearing
problem could exist with these injectors. Once the HR580 injectors are inspected and
upgraded, Hydra Rig will inspect all HR560 and HR440G injectors in the field. If the
bearing lubrication problem exists with these injectors, Hydra Rig will cover warranty
costs on these upgrades as well. At the same time an overall maintenance survey will
be performed on these injectors to produce a condition report versus total footage (from
the hubometer readings) to give both Hydra Rig and users base line data for future
maintenance or rebuild programs versus total footage.

Therefore, we request that the Injector Information & Inspection Survey be


completed for HR560 and HR440G injectors as above.

The Injector Information & Inspection Survey on the next page can be returned to
one of the email addresses listed below or faxed to the number listed below.

End Play Measurement Procedure


TOOLS REQUIRED:
Standard allen wrench set
Dead blow mallet
One -13 UNC bolt 2.5 inches long
inch end wrench
Dial indicator
Magnetic base for dial indicator
Crowbar

1. Remove the outer protection frame from the injector.


2. Drain the oil out of the injector gearbox.
3. Remove the motor and brake. Visually inspect and take pictures of all splines.
The pictures need to be sent in with the Injector Information & Inspection Survey
4. Very carefully lay the injector on its side with the motor and brake side down.
5. On the cover of the gearbox, which is now pointed up, are five 3/8 inch pipe
plugs. The plugs are the center of each shaft in the injector gearbox. Remove all
of the pipe plugs and save for reuse when this procedure is complete.
6. Start on the input shaft in the gearbox. (Same shaft the brake mates up with)
7. Thread the -13 UNC bolt into the end of the shaft through the hole where the
pipe plug was. This bolt does not have to be extremely tight but does need to be
snug.
8. With the mallet hit the head of the bolt to ensure that the shaft being measured is
completely bottomed out in the bearing race on the opposite side of the gearbox.
9. Set up the dial indicator attached to the magnetic base on the head of the -13
bolt, tighten all the connections on the dial indicator and base.
10. Zero the dial indicator
11. Place the crowbar under the head of the -13 bolt and pry upwards firmly but not
excessively. (See detail A)
12. Record the amount of travel in the shaft on the survey sheet.
13. Repeat this procedure for each shaft.
14. When complete reinstall the pipe plugs.
15. Refill gearbox
16. Reinstall outer protection frame.

PRODUCT: All Tubing Reels

REFERENCE: Reel Swivel Bolted Joint Connections

It is important that the fasteners that attach the swivels to the reel stub shafts be
installed and kept tight to assure maximum life and safety of the connection. It has
come to our attention that some information supplied in our manuals is incomplete or in
some cases inaccurate. It is necessary, therefore, to immediately check the condition of
your Hydra Rig reel(s) using the following guidelines.

Reels with 1.25, 1.5, and 2 bore swivels rated at 10,000 psi working pressures use
13 UNC studs and nuts. The studs should be Hydra Rig part number BFA00009 which
is an L-7 grade stud identified with L-7 stamped on the end. These should be checked
to be in good condition and tightened using Torque Specification P/N CA420369, copy
attached. The nuts and washers are P/N BFN00033 and BFW00005, respectively. A
complete fastener kit for mounting the swivel, including Loctite, anti Seize, and face seal
for the 1.25 swivel is CA420374. The fastener kit for the 1.5 is CA420370 and for the
2 it is CA420372.

Reels with 1.5 bore swivels rated at 15,000 psi working pressures use 5/8 11 UNC
studs and nuts. The studs should be Hydra Rig part number BFA00069 which is an L-7
grade stud identified with L-7 stamped on the end. These should be checked to be in
good condition and tightened using Torque Specification CA420368, copy attached.
The nuts and washers are P/N BFN00086 and BFW00007, respectively. A complete
fastener kit for mounting the swivel, including Loctite, Anti Seize, and face seal is
CA420371.

Note: If there is any doubt that the fasteners are not genuine Hydra Rig components in
good condition, we recommend replacing them. A click type micro adjustable open end
torque wrench for applying proper torque to both of these stud sizes is available from
Hydra Rig by ordering P/N CA420373.

The fasteners attaching the swivels to the reel stub shaft should be checked periodically
for proper tightness as outlined above. Any time the swivels are removed and
replaced, it is important to follow the tightening procedures above.

If there are any questions, please contact Hydra Rig Service Department.

PRODUCT: All 6-Series Injectors

REFERENCE: Chain Tension Installation


This PSB is a follow up to PIB 14, issued at the beginning of October 2006.

A retrofit kit has been designed and tested to correct the problem of the tension shafts
walking out on the 6-Series injectors. For every injector in the field, Hydra Rig will
supply a retrofit kit containing two replacement tension sprockets, two tension shafts,
and four tension bearings. This kit will be pre-assembled and have step by step
instructions for proper installation included.

The original connection between the shaft and sprockets, and the connection
between the shaft and bearings, were a slip fit. Starting mid-November 2006, both
of these connections were changed to a press fit.

In addition to the retrofit kits, Hydra Rig will supply a Technician to remove the original
parts, install the retrofit kit, test the assembly, and return the original idler sprockets to
Hydra Rig. However, there are a limited number of technicians. The technicians will be
dispatched in an order to ensure that the total down time for all our customers is kept to
a minimum. Technicians will not be dispatched until the retrofit parts are verified to be
where the work is to be completed.

Hydra Rig will also assist our customers to install the retrofit kit themselves if a
technician is not available in the time frame needed by the customer. The supplied
retrofit kit includes a drawing with step by step instructions and Hydra Rig Service will
support questions by e-mail or phone during the installation. Once the retrofit kit is
installed, the idler sprockets are to be returned, at Hydra Rigs expense, through
Hydra Rig Service. Any warranties on the injector will not be affected by customer
installation as long as the step by step instructions are followed.

PRODUCT SERVICE BULLETIN # 134

PRODUCT: All 440G, 560, 580 and 5100 Injectors

REFERENCE: Proper Gearbox Oil Level Clarification

All Hydra Rig injectors listed above use PEM purpose built gearboxes to drive the
injector chains. There may be some confusion in the field about where the gearbox oil
level should be maintained. Each model of the gearboxes listed above has a different
full level, and needs to be checked and maintained carefully. The purpose of this PSB is
to inform everybody in the field operating a 440G or 500 series injector how to properly
maintain the gearbox oil level, and to make any modifications to their gearbox
necessary to maintain the gearbox oil level at the proper level.

Following, there are illustrations of each gearbox. Each illustration will show the proper
location of the sight glass and all related placards. Each gearbox will also be identified
by the Hydra Rig gearbox part number. This same part number is cast into the cover of
each gearbox. If there is doubt about what gearbox you actually have, you can identify it
by matching part numbers. Regardless of the orientation of the sight glass on your
gearbox now, the illustrations in this PSB indicate where the sight glass needs to be, to
properly check for the correct oil level in the gearboxes.

If you determine that your sight glass is not in the location on the following illustrations,
it should be moved to the location pointed out in the illustration.
To successfully accomplish this, the following procedure should be followed

1. Remove the outer protection frame from the injector


2. Drain the oil from the gearbox
3. Lay the injector on its side with the cover up, and the drive motor down.
4. At this point it would be a good idea to check the end play on all the shafts in
the gearbox per the instructions in your manual. These instructions are found in
the maintenance section of the manual referred to as external gear drive
inspection recommended every 2 million running feet. If the bearing end play
needs attention, you can adjust it while the cover is off to move the sight glass.
5. Break the silicone seal on the gearbox cover
6. Lift the cover off of the gearbox and move it to the location where you will drill
and tap the cover
7. Cover the gearbox still attached to the injector with a tarp, or other material to
keep foreign matter out of the gearbox while the cover is being modified

8. Lay out the desired location for the sight glass using the dimensions on the
illustrations
9. Drill a hole in the cover of the gearbox in the desired location 29/32 (.906)
inches in diameter
10. Tap the hole inch national pipe thread.
11. Clean the inside of the gearbox cover of any drill or tap shavings
12. Clean old silicone off of the cover sealing flange
13. Clean the old silicone off of the mating flange of the gearbox itself.
14. If the end play on the gearbox shafts needed no attention, apply new silicone to
the sealing flange of the gearbox
15. Lower the gearbox cover onto the gearbox using the dowel pins to line it up.
16. Install and tighten all cover bolts.
17. Move the sight glass to the desired location.
18. Install a inch NPT plug in the now open hole.
19. Stand the injector upright
20. Refill gearbox to proper oil level
21. After the gearbox is sealed up if there are numbers on the outside of your gear
box indicating an amount of oil capacity, grind these numbers off. Only grind
deep enough to get the number off.
22. Touch up paint as needed
23. Reinstall outer frame

If your sight glass is found to be in the proper position per the illustrations you then
need check to see if there are numbers cast into the gearbox cover indicating a
specific amount of oil to be filled into the gearbox. If these numbers are present they
should be ground off; in doing this, only grind deep enough to remove the numbers.

Also, you need to check to see if you have the correct oil fill label in the correct
position. If the labels are not correct, you need replace these. Following is a list of
the oil fill label part numbers for each model gear box.

HR440G Oil Fill Label CB312018

PRODUCT: All 440G, 560, 580 and 5100 Injectors

REFERENCE: Proper Gearbox Oil Level Clarification

After issuing PSB 134, we received customer comments that we considered. As a


result, we are approving an alternative method to check and maintain the proper oil
level in these injector gear drives without relying on the sight glasses.

Remove the oil level sight glass in the gear box and replace with a standard plug.
Then, properly fill the gearbox by removing the fill to plug identified on the attached
drawings (also indicated on the gear cases with the oil level fill to arrow label). With the
injector sitting level, fill the oil into the gearbox to the recommended level. Replace the
fill port plug and fill to port plug (if separate). Proper oil level can then be checked
during subsequent operation intervals by removing the oil level fill to plug and checking
to make sure that the oil level is there.

PRODUCT SERVICE BULLETIN # 135

PRODUCT: All Trailer Mounted Injectors

REFERENCE: Safety Latch on Injector Tilt Stands

During a recent unit test here, a safety latch on an injector tilt failed to catch an injector
being tilted with the injector mounting pin missing. Although we recommend always
installing the pin before tilting, the safety latch should restrain the injector to the tilt
stand. Investigation determined that the tip of the latch lever on the safety latch hung
on a weld preventing the latch from closing properly. In order to prevent this from
occurring in the future, we recommend that the tip of the latch be removed by cutting
and grinding smooth as shown in the attached illustration.

Furthermore, we encourage the installation of a warning label next to the injector tilt
control valve warning the operator that the pin must be installed between the injector
base and the injector tilt before the injector is tilted over for transport. This label is
available at no cost to owners of trailers with injector tilt systems by ordering label part
number CB063884.

Once the lever is modified and checked for proper operation as outlined, we
recommend that you test the tilt safety latch by installing a Grade 8 bolt that is 8
long in place of the standard injector tilt pin. With the bolt installed and secure, carefully
tilt the injector over making sure the latch does not open. If the latch does not stay
closed during this operation, please contact our service department. Presuming a
successful test, stand the injector to its upright position and reinstall the permanent pin
for continued operation.

If you have questions about this PSB, please contact the service department personnel
at our Hydra Rig, Fort Worth, Texas office via email, or phone. When calling by phone
between the hours of 8:00 am and 5:00 pm Monday through Friday, please call 817-

PRODUCT SERVICE BULLETIN #136


PRODUCT: HR680 & HR6100 Injectors

REFERENCE: HR680 & HR6100 Injector Pressure Balance Line

We have experienced failures in some installations of the special stainless steel


pressure balance lines fitted to both the HR680 and HR6100 injectors. These failures
occurred in field retrofits as well as in newly built injectors. Although the number of
failures is small, no failures can be tolerated. All of the reported failures of the balance
line kits were in the special fittings used with the stainless steel line, although some lead
to a failure of the stainless line itself.

Failures of this connection in the injector hydraulic drive circuit are disabling and
potentially dangerous. The new design, without the special fittings, is to be installed
immediately to avoid possible balance line failures. This design employs proven
hydraulic hose and high pressure split flange fittings already used in the injector drive to
make a highly reliable balance line. Hydra Rig will supply the upgrade kits free of
charge.

The new injector counterbalance jumper kits should be installed per the attached
procedure using parts called out on the correct kit. The HR680 kit is CC332230 Hose
CB Valve Jumper Mod and the HR6100 kit is CD332245 Hose CB Valve Jumper Timed
Mod. These kits can be installed without Hydra Rig assistance.
