Product Description

2⅜ Hydra-Shift® Tong

The Oil & Gas Industry has needed a specialized power tong with an integral backup. This tong is sized small enough and has the right amount of controllable torque output. Designed to properly grip small tubular such as small macaroni type strings of tubing.

This tong incorporates Eckel's Hydra-Shift® technology for a smooth transfer of power and speed directly to the tubular. Special built-in torque control valving allows the operator to pre-set the maximum desired torque for the connection. This tong also incorporates our new Radial Lock Door. If you are looking for a tong for this lighter type of word, look no further.

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.
