Stabbing Guides, Pulling Guides, All-in-One Guides are available for sizes 1 ¼” (31.8mm) up to 20” (508mm) tubing, casing, and drill pipe.
Most OCTG running procedures promote the use of a Stabbing Guide. Most Premium Tubular Supervision Companies, as well as Tubular Suppliers recommend the use of a Stabbing and Pulling Guide for all Premium Connections. The same theory of using a Stabbing and Pulling Guide could be carried over to all API Tubing, Casing and Drill Pipe.
Stabbing Guides are used while running pipe to protect the pin threads and seal area, as well as the box end threads from being damaged by missed stabs during make–up.
Pulling Guides are used while pulling pipe to protect the pin and box threads from hanging up by keeping the connection centered to allow proper thread clearance during the break apart process.
All-in-One Guides can be used for both running and pulling pipe, they utilize all the benefits of a Stabbing Guide and Pulling Guide in just one guide.
Stabbing Guides, Pulling Guides, and All-in-One Guides have a plastic urethane insert that will not damage the box or pin areas of the connection. This plastic urethane is good for extreme cold and extreme hot conditions, both onshore and offshore applications, and are resistant to most chemicals. Our steel case, handles, and latch system provide superior support for the urethane insert and provide better clamping stability on the box connection. Our designs are more robust and stay in place better then other plastic guide designs currently available in the market.
