When it comes to safety in the oilfield, we love to see innovation spring up because someone using a certain piece of equipment, that has been around for decades, figured out a better way to do things!
If you’ve worked in the oilfield for any length of time, you have seen hammer unions used on just about every piece of equipment with hard piping. Even if you’ve never had to make-up or disconnect one of these beasts, just watching someone do it makes it glaringly apparent that there is a high potential for incident.
Today on the Oil and Gas Health, Safety and Environment Podcast, we talk to Will and Rae the founders of Safer Union, an amazing alternative to hammer union pipe connections.
Safer Union is a better alternative to using hammer unions: It is faster to make-up and break apart, requires less manual handling, can be torqued to a specified foot-pounds, and eliminates the need to swing a sledgehammer at your capital equipment!
