Varco® BJ is an industry leader in casing handling equipment, offering a wide range of tools capable of handling casing. Slip action is controlled by a conveniently positioned pneumatic control valve, manual operation, or hydraulic actuators.
Dressed as an elevator, the tool uses a bottom guide plate and a casing guide bell, which centers the pipe. Dressed as a spider, the tool uses a spider adapter plate, which sits on the rotary table to provide a secure platform for the tool, and an upper guard guide assembly (BJ type only), which centers the pipe.
All pneumatically controlled units operate using rig air. To maximize crew safety, the system may be manually operated if rig air pressure is lost. Safety is further ensured by a positive locking mechanism which locks the slips in the set position.
