The hydraulic 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.

  • Field Proven Design for 20 Years.
  • Ideal for Tubing, Casing, and Drill Pipe Connections
  • (3) Gripping Surfaces
  • Slip Free Operations
  • Wrap-Around Dies: Coarse, Finetooth and True Grit® Dies

Eckel Wedge Drive Tri-Grip® Backup

    Same great features found on the standard Tri-Grip®, the Wedge Drive Tri-Grip® Backup was introduced in 2014 as a evolutionionary update to the standard Tri-Grip. The WD Tri-Grip is a high performance backup with no compromises that is available for specific applications. The Wedge Drive Tri-Grip handles the most demanding torques that larger casing and drillpipes demand. 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.

Compression Load Cell

Eckel customarily provides compression style hydraulic backups to measure the torque exerted in make-up and break-out operations. A load cell bracket is located at the rear of the backup which a compression load cell is inserted.

Tension Load Cell

Eckel also provides tension type backups when operator preferences require a tension configuration. Tension backups unlike compression have identical handle lengths as the tong. This allows the torque gauge assembly to be calibrated for proper torque readings in both tong and tong & backup configurations. The tension load cell is mounted on the rear of the backup between the roller bracket yoke and load cell mount.
