Product Description

20 Hydra-SHift® UHT Tong

When applications demand the combination of size and high torque output up to 120,000 ft-lb, the Eckel Model 20 Hydra-Shift® UHT handles pipe from 7 inches to 20 inches. By utilizing a two speed mechanical shift transmission in conjunction with the two speed Hydra-Shift® motor, the operator has a more flexible choice of torque/rpm's to work with during make-up or break-out.

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.
