A 100-year-old global market leader in horizontal drilling was experiencing frequent control cable failures on their top drive unit. It was being exposed to flexing, twisting, abrasion as well as exposure to fluids and extreme weather conditions. The cables being used were not performing and failing constantly which led to unwanted downtime.
This customer replaced 185 feet of cable in a top drive application with TPC’s Super-Trex 16/25 Reduced Diameter Control Cable. This control and instrumentation cable is designed for industrial applications that require continuous flexing and has a TPE jacket that provides defense against abrasion and chemicals.
The customer saved $2,448.80 in material and labor costs by switching to TPC cable as well as saving 100 hours in labor. If they had continued with the previous cable, they would have changed out the cable three times, but using TPC cable allowed them to continue production for 15 straight months without failure.
