Oil Sector – Conductor Wear Sheaves
For over 5 years, Tufcot, in partnership with HHR Enterprise, have been developing the WearSheave products to suit various oil rig conductors around the world.
The key benefits of the Wear Sheave are:

- Replace unsafe wooden chocks
- Minimal wear rates – see clients comments below

Recent Project Gallery
We recently received a drawing from a customer with a simple question; can you make this King Post Bearing?
King Post Bearings are often used for a simple old type of crane sometimes used on oil rigs. After previous issues with nylon products, the customer had decided to try Tufcot® to replace the old original bearing.
We informed the customer that we could make the product and that it would take 2 weeks for us to deliver.
