Eckel Remote Operated Tongs
Eckel Remote Operated Tongs: Provides a mean to control a hydraulic power tong from a remotely located console for tubular make-up and break-out operation. The tong is based upon the standard tong and backup configuration with the exception of hydraulic cylinders installed on the unit for remote control of the operational functions of the tong and backup. These functions include the tong door, backing pin, mechanical gear shift. Power tong rotation, motor speed, and backup gripping are also configured for remote operation. The Remote Operated Tongs use a total hydraulic system with no electrical or electronic devices included.
Contact Eckel for further information.
Tong Positioning: A tong positioning system maneuvers any size of Eckel hydraulic power tongs precisely around the tubular during running and pulling operations. One operator controls the tong positioning and tong functions hydraulically from the rig floor.
