LaunchPRO™ Wireless Top Drive Cement Head
The Baker Hughes LaunchPRO™ wireless top drive cement head is a remote-activation system for deepwater applications. LaunchPRO launches balls, plugs or darts wirelessly during cementing of extremely heavy subsea long strings and long, heavy liners. LaunchPRO’s remote wireless operation reduces HSE risk by reducing manual intervention and rig time, while optimizing reliability. LaunchPRO’s operation is powered by rig air through a single pneumatic hose that can be tethered to the cementing line to reduce the risk of damage during cementing operations. A wireless pressure transducer provides real-time data to the cementing operator to allow for adjustments during cementing operations.
