Single Joint Elevator for Well Drilling Use
Elevators, as developed for the drilling industry, are a hinged device with handles that are used to wrap around the tool joint of drill pipe, casing (for collars) to facilitate the lifting or lowering of them singly or of the drill string as a whole.
In practical use elevators are highly stressed components and require regular careful inspection. In practice, sets of elevators and a spare duplicate are required on-site for general operations.
