Diagnosing Problems With Injector Chain Tension

Objectives

  • List problems that can occur with the chain tension circuit
  • List causes for chain tension problems
  • Describe basic tests for the chain tension circuit

The Problem

Failure to maintain tension on the injector head chains can cause:

  • Unusual noises at the injector head
  • Uneven motion and jerking when pulling out of hole (POOH)
  • Damage to the tubing
  • Damage to the injector head and chains
  • Difficulties with the use of the tubing traction system

Failure to maintain tension on the injector head chains can cause the chain to skip while running in hole (RIH) as well.
