O’Bannon Sucker Rod Elevators have been carefully engineered and manufactured to provide maximum rod string protection, wear resistance and ease of handling and operation.
The one-piece body is made of alloy steel, heat-treated for extra strength and wear resistance; the forged bail is stiffened at the bend with an “I” section to prevent binding under maximum loads.
The seat for the rod upset radius is investment cast to produce a precision fit, thus preventing both tilting of the elevator body and local stressing or kinking of the sucker rods.
O’Bannon Solid Body Sucker Rod Elevators can be custom-designed and manufactured to accommodate fiberglass sucker rods. Simply provide the dimensions of the FRP end-fitting to Norris with the purchase order requisition.
