Northstar began extracting tubes at the Tuttle Station during July of 2015 using a Detubing System manufactured by PSR for Northstar in 2014. This particular equipment package had been used to extract 120,000 tubes from plants on the east coast prior to being shipped to Texas.
PSR's field technician provided refresher operation and maintenance training to Northstars labor crew and performed a 100,000 tube tune-up service on the equipment.
On completion of the Tutle project the equipment package, consisting of 1 ea. Cutter, Collet Puller , Extractor and Chopper will have successfully past the 200,000 tube mark which will be a first for one of our systems and a marked achievement in the tube equipment industry.
