9⅞ HS-55 Tong
Eckel’s 9⅞ HS-55 Tubing / Casing providing high torque and high continuous rotational torque that you can trust within a compact operational footprint featuring SPACE SAVER® technology.
The 9⅞ HS-55 Tubing / Casing is the result of months of engineering and extensive stress analysis that insures higher performance, reliability, and long life. Eckel 9⅞ HS-55 provides world-class performance with up to 55,000 ft-lbs maximum torque. The tong features our new patent pending CASE STIFFENER technology that enhances overall torque output. Having a high full 360° rotational torque and speed-shifting capability insures the tong can makeup special torque-turn connections that require continuous rotation. A two-speed Hydra-Shift® motor is coupled with a two-speed gear train to provide (4) torque levels and (4) HS- speeds allowing the operator remarkable control of the connection.
SPACE SAVER® Technology for today’s smaller rigs! Compact Operational Footprint
Tong dimensions are a critical design aspect that our engineers worked to reduce for today’s smaller rigs. The result was having one of the industry’s smallest operational footprints tongs for its capacity and torque. The patent-pending SPACE SAVER® door that hydraulically opens vertically, allowing for the tong to work in a much smaller operational area on rig floors and is also less labor-intensive operating. The door opens to the tong operator’s opposite side, allowing full view of the tong throat area while positioning the tong on the tubular. A fast 2-second door operation is all that is required to open or close the door.
Fully Enclosed Safety Door Interlock - Enhanced Safety
The safety door interlock prevents tong operation when the tong door is open. Now enclosed within the tong body, providing tamper-resistant concealment from operator circumvention. Accidental damage of the door interlock by hydraulic fluids, tubular connection, or other external forces is also greatly minimized. A front panel provides access to the door inter-lock for any maintenance required
Exceptional Gripping Capabilities
The 9⅞ HS-55 Casing Tong offers exceptional gripping capabilities handling tubular size from 3½ - 9⅞ in. (88.9 - 250.8) and WD Tri-Grip® Backup size 3½ - 11 in. (88.9 - 279.4). An innovative design allows you to choose either sliding heads or pivot heads configuration upon order. Wrap-Around dies are offered which securely encompass the tubular to limit potential for damage. Therefore, you are assured of your down hole tubular connection integrity.
Torque Turn Readings
Available with a two-speed Hydra-Shift® motor for a smooth speed shifting without stopping. A WD Tri-Grip® Backup is offered for make-up and break-out of the most resilient connections. These two design features provide excellent torque turn graphic readings. Additionally a two-speed gear train is provided for (4) Torque Levels and (4) HS- Speeds.
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.
