NOV Power Slips • PS15 & PS16

NOV, National Oilwell Varco, power slips are designed to eliminate the manual lifting and setting of slips. The PS15 power slip uses coil springs as a counterbalance to offset the weight of the slips when in upper, released position. Slips are set by standing on the slipset ring. The foot pedal is pressed to release the slips.

The PS16 power slip is an air operated power slip controlled with various control options. The slips are set by gravity and released with air pressure much like NOV's casing elevator/spiders. The PS16 is equipped with a feedback kit for positive slips set indication.

Fits directly into NOV pin drive master bushings. Fits 27-1/2" and 37-1/2" to 49-1/2" rotary tables using adapter rings Accommodates 3-1/2" to 6-5/8" OD Drill pipe

Not be used for back up torque.
