Product Description

9⅝ Hydra-Shiftt® NB Tong

When applications require the combination of size and torque up to 18,000 ft-lbs, the Eckel 9⅝ Hydra-Shift® (Narrow Body) meets these requirements. The narrow body design allows this tong to easily operate on smaller rig configurations. A two speed mechanical shift transmission in conjunction with the two speed Hydra-Shift® motor provides the operator a flexible choice of torque and RPM's to work with during make-up or breakout. The 9⅝ Hydra-Shift® is capable of handling a range of pipe from 2⅜ inches to 9⅝ inches.

This tong also includes our patented (US Patent 6,279,426) radial door lock for latchless locking of the tong door. The tong door easily swings open or closed and is locked when torque is applied to the tong. When combined with our safety door interlock, the tong provides unparalleled safety while speeding up the turn around time between connections

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 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 tubular.
