Reel Power Marine & Energy NEW Loc-Torus II Remote Connector System has completed first month of frac field trials in South Texas.  The operator has realized significant improvements in stages per day. By making up the wireline connection remotely, the need to send personnel in the high pressure zone up in a man lift is eliminated, extending the frac pumping times.

The system includes a complete control system with interlocks to prevent actuating the connector with positive bore pressure, along with remote diagnostics of the system.  Both the wireline and night cap connections are remotely operated, keeping people out of high pressure zone throughout the process. No additional equipment is required for connecting the night cap.
