Weight Indication System/Drill Line Anchor

Product Introduction
The deadline anchor is used to tie down the drill line and provide accurate weight measurements suspended from the top drive, i.e. hook load. The wire drum attached to the anchor is designed to rotate during a slip-and-cut procedure. Deadline Anchors from Finemade offer industry-leading load capacities and are designed and monogrammed per API 8C specifications.

A rotating drum is used to efficiently slip drill line by optimizing safety and reduce down time. Full line of all-weather, quality-built deadline anchors pull capacities from 30,000 to 120,000 pounds. Constructed with top-quality steel and proof-tested to 120% of rated capacity, Finemade deadline Anchors are highly accurate, super-strong anchors of exceptional reliability.
