Product Description

14 HS-60 Tong

New for 2020, the Eckel Model 14 HS-60 handles pipe from 4 inches to 14 inches while delivering 60,000 ft-lb of torque in low-speed, low-gear. The tong includes two highly popular technologies Hydra-Shift® speed-shifting and a touchless Space Saver® door. A two-speed Hydra-Shift motor is coupled with a two-speed gear train to provide (4) torque levels and (4) RPM speeds, allowing remarkable control of the connection while providing a very smooth and high integrity connection. The touchless Space Saver door technology that hydraulically opens vertically. This significantly improves crew safety, speed of operation, and tong performance.

Fully Enclosed Safety Door Interlock - Enhanced Safety

The safety door interlock prevents tong operation when the tong door is open. Now enclosed within the tong body providing a tamper resistant concealment from operator circumvention. Accidental damage of the door interlock by hydraulic fluids, tubular connection or other external forces is also greatly minimized. A front panel provides access to the door inter-lock for any maintenance required

Wedge Drive Tri-Grip® Backup

The WD Tri-Grip® Backup is a high performance no compromise backup that is suitable for make-up and break-out of the most resilient connections. The WD Tri-Grip® Backup features a three head design that encompasses the tubular that applies an evenly distributed gripping force. The backup is capable of handling tubulars from 3½ in. to 11 in. (88.9 - 279.4 mm). A constant radial load is applied with a single wedge drive to actuate the front two pivot heads with a third stationary head providing a reactionary force to provide a superior gripping performance. Wedge Drive Tri-Grip®Backup has exceptional gripping capabilities with Eckel Wrap-Around, True-Grit® dies or Pyramid Fine Tooth dies for making up other types of tubulars.
