Rotating Control Devices (RCDs)
Weatherford Rotating Control Devices (RCDs): Safer and more productive drilling.
We offer a full line of RCDs to maintain a pressure-tight barrier between the fluid returns and personnel on the rig floor. The RCD enables the drilling fluid returns in the annulus to be safely contained and diverted below the rig floor to the returns system without interrupting operations.
Our RCDs address wide range of HSE challenges that can threaten the safety of personnel, equipment, and the environment.
- Unexpected kicks
- Shallow gas or water hazards
- H2S and CO2 hazards
- Corrosive mud systems
We recently received the industry’s first API 16RCD certification for our rotating control devices (RCDs).
