Component Descriptions

Trough

  • The trough is used to cradle and guide tubular products or casings to the drilling rig platform and back.
     

  • The trough has a variable height adjustment component. This allows final height adjustments for different sub heights or work floors.
     

  • The trough houses the skate and flippers responsible for transporting the tubular products or casings on the trough.
     

Trough Extension

  • The trough extension is used to handle longer tubular products or casings.
     

  • The extension installs on the end of the trough.
     

  • The trough houses the skate and flippers responsible for transporting the tubular products or casings on the trough.​

Skate

  • The skate moves the tubular products or casings up and down the trough in a safe and controlled manner.

Skate Hood

  • The skate hood is adjustable to prevent the tubular product or casings from bucking out while latching elevators on the rig floor.
     

  • The skate hood can be manually adjusted for different diameters of tubular product or casings.

Outriggers

  • Each of the outriggers are equipped with a hydraulic cylinder which operates the leg (extending or retracting leg).
     

  • The outriggers are each equipped with a drop leg for greater adjustment.
     

  • Completely retract and secure the outriggers prior to and during transport.

Flippers

  • The flippers are flush mounted inside the trough and are used to remove tubular products from the trough. The flippers can direct tubular products to the driller or off-driller side of the Hawker Pipe Handler.
     

  • The flippers can only be operated with the trough completely lowered.

Index Arms

  • The index arms are used to lift and lower tubular products or casings from the product racks to the trough.

Pick-Up Arms

  • Pick-up arms are fitted into the index arms and can be manually adjusted to various lengths to lay down or pick up tubular products or casings.
     

  • When moving tubular products or casings to the rig, the pick-up arms lift the product from the product rack and deliver the product to the trough.
     

  • When moving tubular product from the Hawker Pipe Handler to the rack, the flippers in the trough deliver the tubular product to the pick-up arms which lower the tubular product to the rack.
     

  • Deck pins must be installed on the opposite side of the pick-up arms being used.

Remote Control

  • The remote control allows the operator to control the Hawker Pipe Handler from a safe distance or alternate area.
     

  • The remote comes with a 65 foot cord that plugs into the transmitter located on the Hawker Pipe Handler.
     

  • The remote can be operated wireless (if equipped with appropriate optional equipment).
