Drilling Technologies > Pipe Handling > Backsaver

The air operated Backsaver is a hydraulic and pneumatically powered drill pipe slip that works on both square and pin drive master bushings for drill pipe, drill collars up to 8” and casing up to 8-5/8”.  

The Backsaver is designed to enhance safety during rig floor operations that require the use of slips by reducing the number of personnel required on the rig floor.  It can be operated from the driller’s console or at a safe distance from the slips.  It will extend slip and insert life by properly setting and pulling slips.  

The unit is designed with safety in mind, and its purpose is to reduce accidents and fatigue associated with slip handling activities on the rig floor.
