Bucking Unit


A bucking unit applies precise torque to assemble or disassemble drill pipe connections, using hydraulic or mechanical force for both onshore and offshore drilling operations.


A bucking unit is an essential tool in the oil and gas industry, primarily used for the assembly and disassembly of threaded connections in downhole tools, such as drill pipes, casings, and tubing. It employs hydraulic or mechanical force to apply and release torque, ensuring that connections are securely fastened or loosened according to precise specifications. This equipment is crucial for maintaining the integrity of the drill string and other downhole components, facilitating safe and efficient drilling operations. Bucking units vary in design, from bench-top models for smaller applications to large, floor-standing units capable of handling the demands of heavy-duty operations, making them versatile tools in both onshore and offshore drilling environments.
