Single Joint Elevator - SJH Horizontal Pick-up

The elevator is capable of lifting drill pipe, recessed/zip lift drill collars and casing. It will handle single joints of pipe straight from cantilever to off-line stand building systems.

Single Joint Elevator - SJL and SPL

The SJL and SPL single-joint, center-latch elevators are designed to replace unsafe rope slings for hoisting collar type pipe into position. The SJL 90° elevator enables the crew to handle pipe properly, help avoid damage to pipe threads and reduce the chances of accident or injury. The SPL elevator is the same as the SJL elevator except that the SPL elevator is designed for use on tapered pipe, conforming to API specifications for extreme line casing.
