When application demand a wide range of sizes, this tong handles pipe sizes 2⅜ inches all the way to 7⅝.

The Tri-Grip® Backup are 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 insures a slip-free operation. The backup is suspended at an adjustable level below the power tong by means of three hanger legs and allowing the backup to remain stationary while the power tong moves vertically to compensate for thread travel of the connection. 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 tubulars.
