Pipe Deployment


Deployment Trailer

The collapsible FlexSteel™ Deployment Trailer is designed to provide a mobile deployment platform for FlexSteel pipe reels. The trailers minimize set up time and provide the safest means of handling the reels during deployment. The trailers can be easily relocated to various sites and allow for easy repositioning of the reels on the job site. They also allow the option of laying the pipe as the trailer is pulled, or pulling the pipe off the reel while the trailer remains stationary.

Features

  • Deployment Trailer has a lifting capacity of 25,000 lbs.
  • Hydraulically-powered reel supports with 24 inch of stroke
  • Hydraulically-powered reel braking system; coil brake available for coiled reel deployments
  • Collapsible frame rails for ease of transport

A-Frame

The A-Frame is an installation equipment alternative designed to provide a deployment platform for FlexSteel’s pipe. Pipe may be drawn from a stationary reel mounted to an A-Frame or pipe can be laid as the reel and A-Frame are carried on a moving flatbed trailer or vessel.

Features

  • Hydraulically-powered reel supports with 24 inch of stroke (HPU or hand-operated available)
  • Pad eyes (4) to provide safe lifting
  • All configurations offer collapsible versions
  • Static option available in extended position
  • A-Frames have a lifting capacity of 25,000 lbs.
  • A-Frames can be provided with hydraulic lift mechanisms and swing gates that can be pushed under the reel, thereby eliminating the need for a crane to load reels onto A-Frames
  • A simple braking/tensioning system helps prevent free-spooling during deployment

Respooler

The Respooler is designed to provide a stationary deployment and re-spooling platform for FlexSteel’s pipe. In the deployment role, the Respooler works in the same manner as a standard A-Frame reel stand: flexible pipe may be drawn from the reel or the reel may lay flexible pipe as it is towed or carried on a flatbed. In the recovery role, the Respooler uses a hydraulically- powered chain drive to re-spool flexible pipe onto the reel.

Features

  • Hydraulically-powered reel supports with 24 inch of stroke
  • Hydraulically-powered chain drive that supplies approximately 5,000 lbs of pull force.
  • Pad eyes (4) to provide safe lifting.
  • Respooler has a lifting capacity of 25,000 lbs.
