Product Description

5½ UHT Tong

Extremely popular among the most successful pipe handlers, the Model 5½ UHT combines high torque (up to 25,000 ft-lbs) with a wide capacity range. Ideal for handling tubing, casing, and small drill pipe. Options include manual backup or WD Tri-Grip®backups.

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.
