When higher torque performance than 10¾ Standard is required, the Eckel 10¾ Heavy Duty provides the performance you need. Model 10¾ Heavy Duty is always in demand where rig floor space is at a minimum. For pipe sizes from 4 to 10¾ inches, it delivers a stout 25,000 ft-lb of available torque.
The Tri-Grip® Backup is the industry standard for reliable make-up and break-out of tubular connections that are optionally supplied with Eckel tongs. Utilizing two hydraulic cylinders and a three head arrangement ensures a slip-free operation. The backup is suspended at an adjustable level below the power tong using three hanger legs and allows the backup to remain stationary while the power tong moves vertically to compensate for the connection's thread travel. The Tri-Grip® uses two pivoting heads and one stationary. The Eckel Tri-Grip® Backup has exceptional gripping capabilities with Rig Dies when running drill pipe or optional Eckel Wrap-Around True-Grit® dies or Pyramid Fine Tooth dies for making up other types of tubular.
