ALCO offers, supplies and stocks three models of SD Rotary Slips: SDS, SDML and SDXL (reference the chart under the specifications tab for pipe ranges on all SD Rotary Slip models). ALCO SD Rotary Slips can accommodate drill pipe of 2 3/8’’ to 7 inch (60.3-177.8mm) O.D. They are classified as type Short (SDS), Medium (SDML) and Extra Long (SDXL) according to gripping length. SDS slips are designed for shallow well drilling; SDML slips are the perfect choice for all medium depth drilling; SDXL slips are designed for deep drilling. These slips are essential tools for gripping and holding the upper portion of the drill string on the drill floor. The outside of the slips are tapered to accommodate a similar taper in the drill floor for proper fit and replaceable metal dies provide a strong grip to eliminate the pipe from dropping down the hole. ALCO SD Rotary Slips features large handling range, light weight and large contact area on the taper.
