ALCO offers, supplies and stocks three sizes of Woolley Type B Style Slips: Short, Long and Extra Long (reference the chart under the specifications tab for pipe ranges on all ALCO Supplied Woolley Type B Style Slip models). ALCO Woolley Type B Style 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 and replaceable metal dies are used to hold pipe from dropping down the hole. They have a unique torque transfer slot preventing excess wear and pressure and inserts are designed with flat backs so load is transferred to slip body. Slip inserts are easily replaced with removal of one retaining pin.
