Type C Safety Clamp
The KET Type “C” Safety Clamp is one of the most valuable tools on the Rig Floor. It helps guard against dropping flush-joint pipe, streamlined drill collars, etc. into the hole while making-up or breaking-out the string. Literally, it has dozens of money and time-saving applications in oilfield work, in addition to giving increased protection against fishing jobs.
The Safety Clamp consists of individual links, flexibly hinged together. Each link has a separate tapered slip which acts as a gripping member, much like a tapered rotary slip, and each slip is held in a retracted position on the taper by spring tension. When the clamp is tightened, each small slip takes a firm initial grip on the surface of the pipe. Should the pipe start to fall, or should load increase occur against the slips, the taper mounting causes each slip to wedge tighter against the surface of the pipe to increase the grip or lock the pipe against further movement.
