USPTO Issues Patent for UAI’s BI-TT Connector™ Technology

SPRING, TEXAS – Unmanned Ad-Hoc Industries, Inc. (UAI) is proud to announce the BI-TT Connector™ quick connect technology has been issued a patent by the United States Patent and Trademark Office on October 4th, 2016. Traditional threaded-pipe connections require multiple people using heavy tooling such as pipe wrenches or tongs and a come-a-long. Longer tools require personnel to be elevated above ground requiring additional safety precautions. The UAI BI-TT Connector™ technology allows safer assembly of the tool string by eliminating the need for the heavy tooling and multiple elevated people. A single operator using a single Allen wrench can makeup and lock the connection saving time and money. Operators have benefitted by as much as 80%-time savings on each connection where utilized when compared to traditional connections.

James D. Coker, UAI’s Downhole Product Manager said,

“UAI recognized there is a danger and time loss associated with makeup of traditional threaded connections, and sought to reduce those risks. The BI-TT Connector™ technology is very compact and able to be installed on any of the BHA components during non-critical time while laying on the deck. During BHA assembly we utilize the quick connect functionality of the BI-TT Connector™ to reduce the chance of injury while tools are hanging vertically on well-operation time. It’s a win-win by making the operation safer and faster.”
