SafeLatch™ Torque Arms
SafeLatch torque arms quickly latch and unlatch from wire ropes.
No tools, lost parts, or falling objects.
Hardened steel sheaves stay bolted in place and require no lubrication.
Pulling the handles unlocks and unlatches allowing the assembly to swing open.
Just open SafeLatch, swing onto the wire rope, and latch closed.
Production will start soon and will be standard with the XK-100 and XK-150. We're fighting supply chain issues with castings.
After production begins, you may order separately to update your existing XK swivels.
ScopeDown™ Torque Track
Works with any telescoping doubles mast, rig floors to 40' high.
Telescoping track scopes up and down with mast. No rig-down required.
Track lays down with mast for travel. No rig-down required.
Swivel may be repositioned toward any V-door location. No rig-down required.
Track fits both XK-100 and XK-150 swivels. To change swivel, no rig-down required.
Torque reacts into carrier structure by Mantis Reactor™. Zero torque into mast. Rated for 12,000 ft-lbs.
Lower track (outer square tube) is supported by Mantis Reactor™.
Upper track (inner square tube) hangs from crown.
Mantis Reactor™ includes integral swivel rack to park swivel when tripping.
Swivel rack also allows swivel to travel on carrier if desired.
Engineered to API-8C & API-Q1, safety factor 3:1 min.
ZK Hydraulic Top Drives
Top drives are big power swivels for the drilling industry. But top drives also include many automated drilling and pipe handling functions plus a torque track to react the torque.
Our hydraulic top drives are a logical development of our decades of hydraulic power swivel experience.
Our designs are about simplicity.
XK Power Swivels
Power swivels are drilling machines for the well servicing industry. They include at least 3 functions:
- Rotation of the pipe
- Safe support of the hanging pipe load
- High pressure sealing arrangement which allows pumping drilling fluid down through the rotating main shaft and drill pipe.
In addition, we offer features of: Swivel Tilt, Torque Track, SafeLatch Torque Arms, 10,000 psi Washpipe Seal Assy, Brake, and Breakout Unit.
