Cable Support & Guidance in Vertical, Deviated & Horizontal Wells
Slingco’s cable protectors provide a safe, quick and efficient way of conveying and securing downhole cables into well-bores while eliminating the risk of compression-induced damage. A full range of products is available to suit ESP cables, control lines, umbilicals and encapsulated bundles of all sizes, and a streamlined design prevents hang-ups downhole.
Standard Cable Protectors
The Slingco Cable Protector has been purpose-designed for use on the wide range of cables, lines and umbilicals that have to be conveyed in and out of well-bores. Its innovative, streamlined form minimises the risk of downhole hang-ups to ensure maximum operational productivity. Each protector features an eight-point friction pad gripping system that provides a secure, reliable grip to enable the safe, quick and effective conveying and securing of ESP cables, control lines, umbilicals and encapsulated bundles.
Its design and innovative engineering deliver the required grip without risk of either compression-induced damage to cables, or damage to the protector itself, enabling it to be re-used (subject to all necessary safety checks).
