Academy Petroleum Industries Hanger Flange provides a safe means of hanging off a drill string or tubing where it is impractical to land the tubing hanger. This allows the tubular to be hung off at any point during the operation, no matter if the tubular is in the light or heavy position. These slim, easy to install units are readily adaptable and can be installed anywhere in your Drilling or Completion/Workover BOP stack.
The Hanger Flange is typically installed above or below the Annular or Rotating BOP between the stripline. It is manually activated by rotating the lag bolts. These units are especially useful when changing stripping elements while under balanced drilling. It is also useful when stripping on or off a snubbing unit while drilling, allowing the drilling rig to strip the drill string until the balanse point, before rigging in snubbing equipment.
