Utility Winches Offer Integrated Solution for Onshore Rig

Ingersoll Rand has introduced the Hydraulic Force Series, a portfolio of utility winches for onshore rig manufacturers and operators. The Hydraulic Force Series winches are built to support material handling needs, from lifting equipment to racking and stacking pipe. Hydraulic Force Series winches save customers time and resources with simple plug and play installation and come fully tested as a complete system.

"In the past, rig builders had to source controllers, drum guards and other accessories from multiple third parties to create an effective utility lifting solution," said Jennifer Eckert, Product Manager for Ingersoll Rand Material Handling. "Throughout that process, equipment gets adapted, which potentially compromises the system integrity. The end product is never tested as a whole system, leaving its safety in question. The Hydraulic Force Series winches give onshore rig operators and manufacturers peace of mind knowing that their winch system has been fully tested by Ingersoll Rand in the final configuration in which they need it to operate."

The winches are currently available in 8,000 lb. and 12,000 lb. capacities and the 1,000- 3,000- and 6,000 lb. capacities will be available soon. All models come equipped with a variety of control options and a wireless-compatible interface to help maximize performance and align with advancing technology trends. The 8,000- and 12,000 lb. winches can be configured to include:

  • Tested controls: Ingersoll Rand assembled and tested controls offer easy plug and play installation, reducing implementation time. Customers can choose between local or remote mounted controls.
  • Hydraulic gear motor: A multi-stage planetary gearbox provides winches with smooth gearing for operation in harsh environments.
  • Rope guide and press roller: The press roller applies tension to the wire rope reducing tangling. The simple, manual rope guide spools wire rope evenly when the winch is not under load.
  • Drum guards: Heavy-duty drum guards protect the operator while maintaining visibility of spooling while the winch is in operation.
  • Multi-disc brake: In the event of loss of pressure, an automatic negative static multi-disc brake supports safe operation.
  • Pedestal base: A robust pedestal base places the winch at an operating height that is ergonomically friendly.

All Hydraulic Force Series winches ship with a test certificate verifying operation of the complete system.
