Product Description

5½ Hydra-Shift®UHT Tong

Extremely popular among the most successful of pipe handlers, the Model 5-/2 Hydra-Shift® UHT combines high torque (up to 32,000 ft-lbs) with a wide capacity range. Ideal for handling tubing, casing and small drill pipe. Options include manual backup or Tri-Grip®backups.

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 employing 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.
