levelwind

1. n. [Well Workover and Intervention]
The assembly on a coiled tubing reel that guides the tubing string onto the drum. Accurate spooling is necessary to avoid damaging the tubing and to ensure that the entire string can be run and retrieved without jamming. The levelwind functions automatically, although it incorporates a manual override to facilitate minor corrections.
