Splice / Gauge Protectors

Splice protectors provide essential protection that shields cable splices from mechanical forces in the wellbore. With numerous configurations available, our protectors can be tailored to specific sizes of cables and splices.

Forum’s splice protectors are part of our Cannon Services product line and extensive MultiLift artificial lift solutions catalog.

Benefits
  • Protects splices from installation- and retrieval-related damage.
  • Offers high reusability that saves cost on well recompletions.
  • Installs in the most complex offshore/subsea well designs.
  • Reduces workover time and cost due to quick installation.
Features
  • Interchangeable designs (fits tubing with outside diameters of 2.375-13.75 inches or greater)
  • Configurations for flat-to-flat, round-to-round or flat-to-round cable splices
  • Commonly used on motor lead extensions and pigtail splices
  • Fits with splice types such as tubing-encapsulated cable (TEC), hydraulic, other line configurations
  • Suitable for high-angle wellbores
  • Custom built per well requirements
  • Assemblies deployed mid-joint or cross-coupling
  • Options for corrosion-resistant alloy and other specialty steels
Applications
  • Electric submersible pump cable splices
  • Heater cable splices
  • Downhole pressure and temperature transducer Y-block splices
  • TEC/fiber optic splices

Cross Coupling Protector

Downhole cables are especially vulnerable during installation and retrieval. Our cross-coupling protectors support virtually any configuration of control lines, electric submersible pumps, umbilical lines or encapsulated bundles in the wellbore. The protector’s channel shields cables and lines as they transition across the coupling, helping to prevent damage during installation or retrieval of completions. The compressive fit design accommodates oversize or undersize tubing per American Petroleum Institute specs and securely engages the cable or lines to the tubing.

For your most challenging well environments, Super 25 cross-coupling protectors provide the same functionality as our standard protectors with the added benefit of superior corrosion resistance. No matter which configuration you choose, installation is quick and easy with air-driven hydraulic tools.

Forum’s cross-coupling ESP cable protectors are part of our Cannon Services product line and extensive Forum Multilift Solutions catalog.

Applications (Super 25 Duplex Configuration)

Mid Joint Clamp

For superior downhole cable protection, pair Forum’s mid-joint clamps with cross-coupling protectors on the tubing string. Installed mid-joint on the tubing, these clamps can secure virtually any configuration of control lines or cables in the well. Per American Petroleum Institute specs, the compressive-fit design accommodates oversize or undersize tubing and securely engages the cable or lines to the tubing.

Forum’s mid-joint clamps are part of our Cannon Services product line and extensive Forum Multilift Solutions catalog.

Benefits
  • Prevents costly damage to cables or capillaries during installation and retrieval.
  • Provides high reusability, increasing cost savings on well workovers.
  • Protects even the most complex offshore/subsea well designs.
  • Installs quickly and easily, reducing workover time and cost.
Features
  • Designs to accommodate all cable and line configurations
  • Options for corrosion-resistant alloy and other specialty steels
  • Multiple channel designs available to separate multi-line configurations
Applications
  • Artificial lift
  • Permanent gauges
  • Intelligent wells
  • Chemical injection
  • Safety valves
  • Geophones
