Winner of the 2020 E&P Special Meritorious Awards for Engineering Innovation (HSE category), the Rack Back Console is designed to control elevators and spiders to build double, triple, or quad stands for racking back in the derrick.
Runs a pre-programmed sequence and prevents the elevator and spider from operating outside the sequence, reducing the potential for dropped joints or stands
Provides both RUN and PULL modes for building and laying out stands
Programming drum provides visual labels for the operator to reference as needed, indicating which sequence step is currently in progress
Requires CAM tech or tong operator’s confirmation of proper connection make-up before advancing
