LP Power Slips

Over View


The ALCO Low Profile Power Slips is considered to be one of the great innovations in power slips technology. Through years of experience and testing, many improvements have been made which make the ALCO Low Profile Power Slips the leader for a safe, economical, and trouble-free handling of tubular goods. Heat treated alloy steel is used throughout for the greatest possible strength and the longest wearing life with a minimum of height and weight. Hydraulic Cylinders and Foot Valves are mist lubricated through the airstream. All ALCO Low Profile Power Slips are equipped with a manually operated safety latch which may be used to positively lock the slips in their set position. Because of the low operating pressure the slips cannot release from the tubing until it has been raised by the elevators, thus guarding against a lost string in the event that the Foot Valve is tripped accidentally. Through research and field testing our engineers are constantly on the lookout for additional improvements which will assure the personnel in the field of receiving the safest and most maintenance free equipment that is available.
