bed wrap

1. n. [Well Workover and Intervention]
The first layer of coiled tubing, slickline or wireline to be wound on the core of a reel drum or spool. The bed wrap helps secure the tubing string or slickline to the reel core and provides the foundation upon which subsequent wraps are laid as the drum is filled. A neat and secure bed wrap is necessary for proper spooling that will allow the drum to hold the maximum capacity without damaging the string.
