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. Our patent-pending CASE STIFFENER technology enhances overall torque to provide consistent torque output. Having a high full 360° rotational torque and speed-shifting capability ensures the tong can makeup special torque-turn connections that require continuous rotation. Also, the CASE STIFFENER technology reduces stress and wear on the rotary gear teeth. A two-speed Hydra-Shift motor is coupled with a two-speed gear train to provide (4) torque levels and (4) RPM speeds, allowing unprecedented control of the connection while providing a very smooth and high integrity connection. Available with Eckel's ever-popular touchless Space Saver door technology that hydraulically opens vertically to improve crew safety significantly, 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 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.
