Introducing the Keystone Slip Type Elevators

Keystone offers Y Series Slip Type Elevators. The Y Series Elevators are center latch, tubing elevators made to catch collar type or integral joint tubing, and casing.


Slip-type elevators hold and hoist tubing and casing for completion and production operations.They are especially suitable for the hoisting of integral joint tubing and casing.

The models used for tubing are the LYT, MYT, YT, and HYT; and the YC, MYC, HYC, and HYC-XR for casing.

All slip backs and die slots on Keystone slips are precision machined to ensure proper grip and to prevent bottlenecking or slip cuts to the pipe. All Keystone slip type elevators are manufactured in the United States and built to meet or exceed API 8C standards.

Our slips and elevators come with a complete data book, including material and heat certification. This certification ensures your equipment is manufactured with steel from trusted vendors. The KET and API stamp indicate a seal of quality.

Safety Concerns with Rig Floor Equipment

When drilling operations call for the use of slip-type elevators, the following precautions should be taken:

  • Slip-type elevators must close completely, and the latch must engage properly. Double-check the elevator body, latch mechanism, links, and dies and setting plate. Keep hands away from any pinch point or undesignated areas; use only the provided handles for operating the elevator.
  • Elevators should be cleaned frequently to reduce the risk of slippage, and to ensure that they are working properly. If slips are used, make sure the dies are clean and sharp, and all the same size. Do not mix old or resharpened dies with new dies in the elevator slips.
  • Blocks should be completely stopped prior to latching the elevators on the pipe. The blocks must be raised slowly to allow the elevators to slide up to the pipe upset area. Check that the blocks are centered over the rotary table. Any misalignment can result in difficulty when stabbing and spinning up connections.
  • Pipe should be stood back in the derrick no further than necessary, eliminating as much “bowing” as possible. Personnel responsible for “tailing” the pipe should keep the pipe at arm’s length at all times.
  • Workers should never position themselves directly understands or joints of the drilling string. Use a tail rope that allows employees to stand well away from the pipe at initial pick-up.
