LOADSAFE®

Hands-free to handle more.

Discover Schramm’s exclusive LoadSafe® trailer mounted automated pipe & casing handling system. LoadSafe® safely handles heavy drill pipe, drill collars and casing. The system features hands free operation, while hydraulic racks allow for loading to and from pipe trailers positioned on either side of the rig.

LoadSafe® is designed to safely lift tubulars from horizontal position into alignment with the tilting top head of the drill rig. The automated system is fully integrated into the TXD rig rated at 200,000 lb pullback, and is also offered as an option or retrofit for Schramm T90XD, Fury 130, T130XD and T200XD rigs.

Ideal for energy, mineral exploration, mine rescue, large diameter municipal water well, or deep hole geothermal applications

Model Specs

Tubular Range
  • Tubular Diameter Jaws Removed: up to 30 in (762 mm) Maximum jaw size 17″
  • Jaw sets required per a given diameter
Casing Capability
  • Range III, Up to 47 ft (14.3 m) long
Features
  • TXD Only
  • Elevated Work Platform – To facilitate handling of tubulars and provide a non-skid working surface of sufficient height, a 10 ft deep x 17 ft wide platform is an integral part of the pipe handling trailer. The outermost platform sections are hydraulically pivoted and stow to minimize transport width. The LoadSafe pins to rear of rig and provides a level surface for operator and crew approximately 12 ft above ground level. Includes stairway, ladders and side railings. Handrails are open top style to accept winterization structure support materials.
  • Additionally, a carriage, hydraulic cylinders and guide rails are located beneath the elevated work platform to facilitate handling of the BOP stack on and off the bore hole. BOP stack is hung from the carriage and carriage slides 30″ to the centerline of the hole. Carriage rating is 10,000 lbs.
Lift Capacity
  • Up to 5,000 lb (2,268 kg)
Tubular Range
  • Tubular Diameter Jaws Removed: up to 30 in (762 mm) Maximum jaw size 17″
  • Jaw sets required per a given diameter
Casing Capability
  • Range III, Up to 47 ft (14.3 m) long
Features
  • Schramm’s exclusive LoadSafe trailer mounted drill pipe, collar and casing handling system hydraulically lifts tubulars from the horizontal position into alignment with tilting top head. It then advances forward or slides back to allow easy attachment to the top head. The LoadSafe requires a separate power source and or runs off drill rig hydraulic system. Built-in holding clamp allows for make-up or break-out of tool joints from top head spindle and will pass 30 in (762 mm) casing with jaws removed. Drill pipes and casing are rolled onto and off of the pipe handling arm from hydraulic adjustable pipe racks for either side. Will work with most types of drilling rigs with a tilting head and or titlting elevator system.
Lift Capacity
  • 5,000 lb (2,268 kg)
Tubular Range
  • Tubular Diameter up to 24 in (609 mm)
Casing Capability
  • Range I, Up to 22 ft (6.70 m) long
Features
  • Pipe indexing designed to feed a single pipe into the tilting rod trough
  • Radio remote controlled for complete hands free operation
  • Dual left and right, hands free pipe racks
Lift Capacity
  • Up to 10,000 lb (4,536 kg)
Tubular Range
  • Only one set of jaws is required to cover the full range of tubular diameters (4″ -24″). The jaws are simply moved to one of 4 locations on the clamp arms to accommodate 4 separate diameter ranges.
Casing Capability
  • Range III, Up to 47 ft (14.3 m) long
Features
  • The LoadSafe XD automated pipe handling system is skid mounted and provides hands-free pipe handling for drill pipe, drill collars and casing. The LoadSafe lifts tubulars from the horizontal position into alignment with tilting top head and advances forward or slides back to allow easy interface with the top drive spindle and will pass 24″ casing. Built-in holding clamp allows for make-up or break-out of tool joints from top drive spindle.
  • Two (2) pipe arms per side are provided with indexing systems to insure that one pipe is loaded at a time. Arms are positioned to allow the use of Range 2 or Range 3 tubulars.
  • EOH (electric over hydraulic)

FAQ

Why a LoadSafe®?

The current industry-wide shortage of experienced rig hands dictates ease of operation, reliable performance and safety. Economics of CBM, tight shales, unconventional gas plays require lower cost, safer pipe handling. Plus, over 25 field proven Schramm LoadSafe® pipe handlers have been in operation since 2006.

What are some of the key features of Schramm LoadSafe®?

  • Handles all tubulars – drill pipe, collars and casing
  • All hydraulic operation – fluid power takes the hard work out of rough necking
  • Fast set-up – all hydraulic leveling and erection in minutes
  • No derrick man – LoadSafe® automated pipe handler eliminates this position
  • No racking board – tubulars are stowed horizontally on hydraulic racks
  • No tongs – gripping jaws on the LoadSafe® allows make/ break of tool joints
  • Less over-head lifting – LoadSafe® hydraulically raises and presents pipe to the tophead, eliminates lifting slings and tuggers – replaces the V-Door.

What is the capacity of the LoadSafe®?

Range 3 tubulars up to 5000 lb (2,268 kg) and 30 in (762 mm) in diameter can be handled by the LoadSafe®.

What provides power to the LoadSafe®?

Hydraulic power is provided by the Schramm drill thru hydraulic quick disconnect couplings.
