Product Description

14 Hydra-Shift® Tong

The Eckel Model 14 Hydra-Shift® handles pipe from 4 inches to 14 inches and incoporates the Hydra-Shift® technology which provides smoother operating environment and a wider selection of torque/RPM's that are available to the operator. The 14 Hydra-Shift® is capable of delivering 35,000 ft-lb of torque in low-speed, low-gear. Also available with hydraulic Tri-Grip®backup.

Tri-Grip® Backup

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.
