Champion Top-Drive Cementing Head

Champion Top-Drive Cementing Head is designed to surface launch balls or darts in order to operate subsea plug sets. This top-drive or rotary-rig cement head can be manually actuated to release the operating darts or balls by way of the ball-drop port.
The combined functional working parameters/ratings for the Commander 1000 top-drive cementing head are 10,000 psi, 1,000 Imperial tons (2,000,000 lbm), and 75,000 ft-lbf makeup torque.
KINGWELL Champion Top-Drive Cementing Head has integral features in support of cementing and liner operations for the most severe well construction operations; operations where deepwater wells are being drilled in pre-salt, extended salt formations, and where a heavier casing/work-string is needed. KINGWELL’s new modular top-drive head is designed for the next generation of wells being drilled.
1. Modular multi-chamber configuration allows the head to be configured for well-specific operational requirements with additional chambers as required
2. Modular sections joined with full torque/tensile connectors so the number of chambers can be increased or decreased
3. Integral swivel design reduces the overall assembly length
4. Dual 2-in. 1502 circulation swivel ports
5. Allows loading of drillpipe wiper plugs through swivel (disassembly of head is not required)
6. Removable side entry port (3.06-in. ID) allows multiple insertions of activating balls up to 3.0-in. (Pin ID of 3.06-in. is the actual restriction)
7. All seals for the valve inserts, plug indicator flipper and ball drop port are accessible for routine  maintenance without disassembly of the chambers
8. Remote operation capability using radio-frequency to operate self-contained technology or pneumatic systems
9. Wireless remote actuators operated by fillable and replaceable nitrogen cylinders
10. Logic programmed into the wireless controller ensures that darts cannot be dropped out of sequence and also allows for automatic valve sequencing for flushing the head after the job is complete
11. The wireless controller emits a signal frequency unique to each head receiver
12. Remotely operated 10,000 psi 4.0-in. ID Kelly valves
13. Plug loading tools ensures the safe loading of rubber and foam dart types
1. Lloyds and DNV Type and Product certification
2. DNV certified Baskets
3. Integral swivel assembly
4. Ability to load plugs offshore and in the basket without breaking the tool apart to install the plugs
5. Drop plugs while flowing
6. Designed to allow minor maintenance in the field and for improved reliability
7. Removes the need for personnel being raised into the derrick to operate valves
