Formulas for Multiple Tubing Installations


Where all strings used in the installation are to be the same size and are equipped with the same type
joints, the following simplified formulas may be used to determine the smallest internal casing diameters
in which strings may be run.
1. Two Strings Tubing
Minimum running diameter = 2 (O.D. of tubing joint)
Page 11

Section 100 - General Information
2. Three Strings Tubing
Minimum running diameter = 2.1547 (O.D. of tubing joint)

Ref.: National Tube Company Handbook

Capacity of Horizontal Flat Head Tanks


NOTE: To use this table, divide the amount of fluid removed by the inside diameter of the tank, using the same units of
measurement. Then locate in the table what percent of the total capacity this represents. Multiply this percentage by the total
capacity of the tank. This gives the amount of fluid withdrawn (if the tank is more than half full). Subtract from the total capacity
the amount withdrawn to figure how much remains. For tanks less than half full, measure the depth of the fluid and use the tables
as before. This will give the amount of fluid remaining, and by subtracting from the total capacity, the amount withdrawn is
determined. This information can then be used to make strap charts for various size tanks.

NOTES:
1) Breaking strength and safeloads given are for rope used under favourable conditions. As rope ages or deteriorates,
progressively reduce safeloads to one-half of value given.
2) Safe working load may be computed, with safety factor of 4. When condition of material is doubtful, divI.D.e computation by 2.

T = D2 or 0.001406 D2
T = Safe working stress in Tons or Tonnes
D = Diameter in inches or mm

NOTES:
1) 6 x 19 means rope composed of 6 strands of 19 wires each. Strength of wire rope varies slightly with strand construction and
number of strands.
2) The maximum allowable working load is the breaking strength divI.D.ed by the approximate factor of safety given in table 3.
3) Safe working load. (See note 2 under Table 1).
T = 8D2 orD2
T = Safe working stress in Tons or Tonnes
D = Diameter in inches or mm

rope failure, apply a safety factor of at least 8.

FIGURE 2
WIRE ROPE CLAMP
Clamps. Figure 2 illustrates how to apply a wire rope clamp. Slip the two end collars of the clamp on the
rope, facing each other. Bend the rope, bringing the free end back along the long end. Slip one end collar
of the clamp over both parts of the rope. Place the two side pieces of the clamp over both parts of the
rope so that the free end of the rope is even with the ends of the two side pieces. Screw the collars on the
side pieces, using a wrench to force a snug fit.

FIGURE 3

Page 38

Field Data Handbook


Section 100 - General Information
Wedge Socket. This fitting is shown in figure 3. It is used when the fitting must be changed at frequent
intervals. This socket has two parts, the socket proper with a tapered opening for the wire rope and a
small wedge to go into this socket. Remove the wedge and insert a loop of die wire hope through the
tapered opening from the bottom of the socket up. Place the wedge through the loop and pull the ends of
the wire rope back through the tapered opening until the wedge forces the wire rope against the sI.D.es of
the wedge socket. The loop of wire rope must be inserted in the wedge socket so that the long part of the
wire rope will form a nearly direct line to the clevis pin of the fitting. If properly mounted, a wedge socket
will tighten when a strain is put on the wire rope.

FIGURE 1
WIRE ROPE CLIPS
Clips. Clips are used in making up eyes in wire rope. The correct methO.D. of attaching clips is shown in
figure 1. The base of each clip should bear against the line, or long rope end, and the U-bolt should bear
against the dead, or short end. Space the clips at least six rope diameters apart; the number of clips
equals three times the rope diameter (in inches) plus one. If this calculation results in a fraction, use the
next larger whole number. For example, on a 3/4 inch rope:
No. of clips

=3D+1

= (3 x ) + 1
= 3 or 4
Spacing of clips

=6D

(Minimum of 3 clips)
