Hydraulic C-Plate

The Hydraulic C-Plate is engineered for the safe and efficient make-up of tool string connections. 

Typically used when working within lifting frames on semisubmersible rigs and offshore installations, the Hydraulic C-Plate delivers when working at heights where it can be difficult to correctly align the tool string connections.

The Hydraulic C-Plate is designed for superior performance. It provides sufficient stroke to allow for the safe make-up of most small diameter connections and eliminates the need for radio communication or for manipulations of the CT string, lifting frame winch, or crown block. The C-Plate is operated by the use of a hydraulic hand pump giving the operator full control of raising and lowering the tool string.

Combining the Hydraulic C-Plate with our Quick Connect Sub helps eliminate the need for a hydraulic tong for tool string make-up.
