The manual lock LXT BOP is available in single and double models. Contact World Petroleum Supply Sales for special configurations. This manual provides the installation, operation, and maintenance procedures for standard manual lock LXT BOP models with manual lock operators. The manual lock operators are used to close the ram assemblies on the drill pipe and close off the well bore. The manual lock operators require a hydraulic closing pressure of 1,500 psi (103 bar) to accomplish sealing the well bore pressure to the rated working pressure of the preventer. Maximum working pressure for the cylinders is 3,000 psi (206 bar). When the rams are hydraulically closed, the manual lock acme thread locking bolts are rotated clockwise to manually lock the rams in the closed position. National Oilwell Varco (NOV) supplies manual lock LXT BOPs in the sizes shown in the table titled "LXT BOP Available Sizes and Working Pressures" below.
