The "pipe coupling detector"/"slip set" device, which together with the functions on the control panel, provide the operator positive indications that either the elevator and/or spider is holding the single joint and/or string weight in the pipe gripping position.
Designed to reduce the chance of pipe crushing effects, allowing the unit to run longer strings than other compatible units in the market.
Standard design to fit inside a Nat'l 49-1/2" rotary table, reducing the need for scaffolding.
Central-on-board lubrication system.
Hydraulically operated to provide push down on slips for back-up torque reaction.
No castings and welding in its prime load path, minimizing the chance of indications, typically associated with castings.
Simple installation of the size specific components, insert carriers and guides without the need of special hand tools.
