Increasing crew and rig safety is a top priority today along with reducing pipe handling time. Eckel incoporates several features on the 7.25 HS HT-80 to enhance overall tong operation and safety:
- Tong Door Actuator - Guarantees the tong door stays closed while reducing crew hands around the tong opening.
- Finger Guard Shield - Alleviates a possible pinch poing between the tong body and tong door without limiting the tong door operation.
- Door Interlock prevents accidental operation of the power tong when the door is open. The door interlock prevents tong operation whenever the tong door is open by impeding hydraulic fluid to the tong motor.
- Case Handles designed for improved safety when handling the tong. Up to four Case Handles can be optionally mounted on most tong models. Large top and bottom caps help protect the operator when maneuvering the tong on and off the tubulars
