Function
The B+V slip type elevator designs have been enhanced with RSS marking them
suitable for running flush, near flush (small upset) and special clearance tubulars,
including WT-23/26/31 drill pipe.
• Manufactured in accordance with API 8C, PSL 1/2.
• Proof load tested up to 1,5x rated capacity.

RSS feature:
• Remotely controls setting of the slip assembly.
• 4 individual air cylinders connected to the slip segments.
• Can be made available for all manual BVC/BVT and air operated ABVC
elevators.

Features:
• Ability to remotely set the slips
onto tubulars.
• Eliminates the use of setting
rings.
• Slips can accommodate non-
marking inserts.

Benefits:
• Enhanced safety in running
tubulars.
• Eliminates the need to use lifting
subs on tubulars.

Lifting and transport
WARNING: Lift the BVC Elevator on lifting ears only.
WARNING: Wear your personal protection equipment at all times.
Pneumatic functioning of the RSS








If the Three-way-valve of the Control Unit (see Pos.2) switched to “Pos.B”, the valve
applies pressure to the air operated RSS. The four pneumatic cylinders (Pos.1) will
be actuated and cause to set the slips. Switch the valve back to “Pos.A”, the
pneumatic cylinders will be lifted and the slip springs raises the slips.

Installation of pneumatic Parts

Equip the elevators air supply with a maintenance unit (Lubricator, air regulator,
filter) to make sure that devices operate with clean compressed air. An air regulator
ensures constant working pressure and guards the pneumatic parts against break
down.

3. Operation
Safety
• Make sure that all pneumatic lines are isolated before any work is carried out in
the BVC-RSS Sliptype Elevator.
• It is recommended to have the BVC-RSS Sliptype Elevator operated by the
Derrick Man/Floor Man.

Tripping in

• Stab Single J oint of pipe into string at well center
• Make up the connection
• Close the BVC around pipe
• Slowly raise/lower BVC until the slips can be set properly on the pipe

Note: Make sure the slips are not set on the upset of the pipe

• Set the slips by actuating the air supply on the control unit to the RSS-cylinders
• Lower the string in the hole
• When string is lowered such that a new joint can be added, set the slips in the
rotary table
• Release the air to the RSS cylinders by switching the valve in the control unit
back
• Once the BVC slips are raised, the elevator can be opened and the next joint
picked up

Tripping out

• Close BVC around the string
• Slowly raise/lower BVC until the slips can be set properly on the pipe
• Set the slips by actuating the air supply on the control unit to the RSS-cylinders
• Pick up the string weight and raise the slips in the rotary table
• Trip the string out until the slips in the rotary table can be set

Note: Make sure the slips in the rotary table are properly set

• Set the joint(s) back
• Release the air to the RSS cylinders by switching the valve in the control unit
back
• Once the BVC slips are raised and the elevator can be opened
• Lower the BVC down to rig floor to pick up the string again
