We have three different styles of Guides. Stabbing Guide, Pulling Guide and All-in-One Guide, these are available in a variety of sizes from 1¼″ (31.8 mm) - 20” (508 mm)
STABBING GUIDE are used while running pipe to protect the pin threads and seal area, as well as the box end threads, from being damaged by missed stabs during make–up.
PULLING GUIDE are used while pulling the pipe to protect the pin and box threads from hanging up by keeping the connection centered to allow proper thread clearance during the break apart process.
ALL-IN-ONE GUIDE can be used for both running and pulling pipe. They compile all the benefits of a Stabbing Guide and Pulling Guide in just one guide. The most cost-effective guide on the market.
Stabbing Guide, Pulling Guide, and All-in-One Guide have a plastic urethane insert that will not damage the box or pin areas of the connection. The plastic urethane that Hydrotestors uses is safe for use in extremely cold and extremely hot conditions, in both onshore and offshore applications, and is resistant to most chemicals. Our steel case handles and latch system provides superior support for the urethane insert and better clamping stability on the box connection. Our designs are more robust and stay in place better than other plastic guide designs currently available in the market.
