smartFMS™ Flush Mounted Spider

McCoy’s smartFMS™ is a rotary equipment developed to handle casing using replaceable die carriers and provides back-up torque from first pipe joint, hence removing the need for manual backup tongs. This is a fully connected device that in real-time provides information on the state of the tool to the driller’s display (also used with a smartCRT™). Both tools are constantly monitored, providing enhanced safety and reassurance that these are not open at the same time. smartFMS™ increases efficiency and safety by eliminating human error and guaranteeing consistency and repeatability of operations. 

  • Fits inside of rotary with a relatively low profile
  • Reacts backup torque
  • Holds weight of casing string

Interchangeable Parts

  • Insert Carriers
    • Multiple sizes of insert carriers to cover the full range of gripping
    • Carrier utilize a combination of tong dies and handling tool dies that need to be changed out to grip different sizes without needing to open the FMS
    • Carriers are easily interchangeable, utilizing a spring latch to hold the carriers secure
    • Due to geometry, the tension rating for carriers decreases for the smaller pipe sizes
  • Wear Guides
    • Need to be changed for individual sizes of casing in order to help ensure a good bite
    • Sized to allow common centralizer sizes through without need to remove them

FMS Sensor Package

  • Includes two linear sensors inside of cylinders
  • Includes two pressure transducers included inside of control console (sold separately)
  • Both sensors work with McCoy’s Edge Server
    • Linear Sensors determine if the casing is appropriately gripped before releasing the slips
    • Pressure transducer determines if adequate pressure is being supplied
