Product Description

7⅝ HD-20 Tong

When application demand a wide range of sizes, this tong handles pipe sizes 2⅜ inches all the way to 7⅝. Built around the 7⅝ Standard, the 7⅝ Heavy Duty provides a thicker rotary gear for more added strength, an additional idler gear, a larger pinion gear, and stronger bearings for load bearing capacity and durability.

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.
