HEAVY DUTY AND STANDARD DUTY DESIGNS
Rugged stabbing guides are designed to prevent damage during make up and are manufactured from high-grade steel and durable urethane material, then molded to a profile designed to act as a funnel guide. Models are available for tubing, casing and drill pipe, and in your choice of heavy-duty, standard-duty, or mag-latch configurations.
Generally, stabbing guides are used during making up a string of pipe aligning pin to box threads and preventing face damage and connection failure. A stabbing guide tool is used to facilitate the makeup of pipe connections comprising of a diametrally split, hinged and rigid plastics-material infundibulum of high lubricity toughness, and strength adapted to receive and guide a pin connector and having a locating socket adapted to engage a box connector. The tool is spring loaded to closed position by a torsion spring and provided with a pair of hand grip levers to facilitate opening, placement, and removal.
