Dual String Handling Tools
Bilco Dual String Handling Tools have provided reliable, efficient service since their introduction to the oil industry in February 1978. These tools were designed for use with cementing or production equipment and were engineered to safely pull or run two strings of tubing or casing simultaneously.
Design Elminates Bent Tubing
The Bilco in-line patented elevator design carries the hook load directly in-line under the bail. This design enables one joint of tubing to be pulled or run without fear of bending the tubing by positioning an extremely heavy of a load off center to the load.
Easy and Quick Access to Open Hole
An open hole can be obtained in less than two minutes with the easy removal of one bolt that holds the Bilco split-bowl spider together. Easy access to an open hole is very important when packers, centralizers, hangers and other types of production equipment must be lowered through the spider without necessity of removing the spider.
The patented Bilco design eliminates the need for the external pipe divider and inner bushings used in older models, saving 45 minutes or more of costly rig time. This feature also eliminates the potential danger of leg injury during the removal of bushings.
Heavy Duty Construction
Bilco dual tools are constructed from high strength alloy steel and have been tested to and are rated for 250 and 400 tons.
Designed for Easy Operation
The control console for Bilco dual handling tools may be placed directly on the rig floor, allowing easy accessibility to the operator.
Eliminates Accidental Dropping of the String
The Bilco control console for the air-operated spider houses two regulators. One regulator controls pressure to the spider and the other controls pressure to the elevator. By regulating air pressure, the slips cannot be accidentally upset after one joint of tubing has been picked up. This feature eliminates costly downtime.
Saves Valuable Rig Time
Three to four hours of rig up and rig down time can be saved per job through the use of the Bilco dual automatic spider-elevator.
