17 Hydra-Shift® Tong
For casing up to 17 inches, here's a tong that combines speed and the ability to handle smaller sizes economically. If you are running 17 inch casing, give this tong a try. The 17 Hydra-Shift features the two-speed motor and the two-speed gear train which allows for multiple selections of torque or RPM, not to mention the smoother operation of the tong.
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.
