Deadline Anchor

Meets demands of tough offshore installations

Deadline anchor in the field

The Cameron deadline anchor is used to tie down the drill line and measure the load 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.

The reliability of our deadline anchor is important to a vessel's operational safety. Engineered and manufactured to meet the demands and rigors of tough offshore installations, the deadline anchor complies with all relevant standards, reduces wear on the deadline, and facilitates safe drilling line procedures.
