HUDTech™ Connector

The WellEnTech HUDTech™ connector provides a high strength connection at the end of a string of coiled tubing. The patent pending HUDTech™ connector has a unique Slip and Housing design which spreads the radial load evenly around the coiled tubing enabling it to withstand high axial loads. The robust construction is furnished with standard O-rings, has a large through bore and is easy to attach and remove from the coiled tubing. Available for all sizes of coiled tubing, including taper strings, and can be supplied with any type of threaded connection, shackle hole or winch wire configuration.

The WellEnTech HUDTech™ connector is fitted to dressed coiled tubing. The coiled tubing end should be smoothed off and polished with emery cloth. The assembled connector is simply pushed onto the coiled tubing bottom sub of the connector is rotated in order to compress the slip into the coiled tubing, a pull test* will confirm engagement and a final make-up of the bottom sub will ensure the connector has a firm hold of the tubing. There are two o-rings, one primary and the other back up, giving peace of mind for high pressure applications. The connector when fitted to the coiled tubing should also be pressure tested* to ensure it has been fitted correctly prior to running in hole. These connectors are suitable for all types of coiled tubing operations.

* Compatible Pull/Pressure test subs are also available from WellEnTech
