Drill Thru Lifting Sub

A vital tool in oil, gas, and exploration drilling operations, the lifting sub comes in two types: A with an 18-degree shoulder and B with a 90-degree shoulder. The choice between them depends on the elevator’s structural type. These connections strictly adhere to API standards, ensuring reliability. Resembling a pup joint, the lifting sub threads the upper connection of the drill string, enabling smooth tripping in and out via an elevator. Its short-type drillstring design, similar to completion tubing, facilitates secure handling of tools, particularly those needing assistance from drill pipe elevators.

Tubing Spider

This tubing spider, commonly referred to as the Pneumatic Tubing Spider or Model C Spider, is specifically designed to handle tubular sizes ranging from 1.315” to 5½”. It boasts a robust capacity, rated up to 100 Tons.

Operated pneumatically, the Model C Spider utilizes a foot pedal that can be operated from a considerable distance, prioritizing operator safety during tripping operations.

Manufactured in strict accordance with API-7K specifications, our tubing spiders are crafted from high-grade alloy steel.


Elevators in the oil and gas industry serve as a crucial set of clamps, expertly designed to securely grip a stand or column of casing, tubing, or drill pipe. This gripping action enables the elevation of the stand, facilitating its connection to the string and subsequent lowering into the wellbore. In tandem with the blocks, elevators move up and down, playing a pivotal role in the seamless handling of drilling components.

Our inventory boasts a comprehensive range of elevators to cater to diverse needs, including single joint options with square shoulder and insert types. Additionally, we stock center latch elevators, encompassing variations such as Drill Pipe, Slip Type, and Square Shoulder. Furthermore, our selection includes side door elevators, providing a versatile suite of solutions to meet the unique requirements of drilling, completion, and workover operations.

Whether it’s the reliability of square shoulder elevators, the convenience of insert types, or the flexibility of side door designs, our stock ensures that you have access to the right elevators for your specific applications. With a commitment to quality and compliance with industry standards, our elevators contribute to the efficiency and safety of oil and gas exploration and extraction activities.
