Product Description
Eckel 14 HS HT Tri-Grip® Tong with Optional Wedge Drive Tri-Grip® Backup

The 14 HS HT Tri-Grip® Tong is used for making up and break out casing and risers. Capable of handling tubular from 4 in. to 14 in. (101.6 - 355.6 mm) in diameter with a maximum torque of 135,000 ft-lbs (183035.4) of torque capacity. A two-speed Hydra-Shift® motor coupled with a two-speed gear train provides (4) torque levels and (4) RPM speeds. The tong features a three-head - Tri-Grip® biting system design, which like the Tri-Grip®Backup encompasses the tubular to apply an evenly distributed gripping force. The additional head in the tong reduces the risk of radial deformation, die penetration, marking, and wear of the tubular by 1/3 at extreme torques. The tong performs exceptional gripping capabilities with either Eckel True-Grit® dies or Pyramid Fine Tooth dies.

A new and improved tong door - The Eckel patented Radial Door with Hook Latch provides significantly more strength to the tong body. The latching mechanism is a straightforward design that is hydraulically operated to open and securely close the door with ease. When closed, a positive force is applied to the tong body, which provides higher rotational torque.

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 can handle tubular from 4 in. to 15 in. (101.6 – 381.0 mm). A constant radial load is applied when a single wedge drive to actuate the front two pivot heads with a third stationary head providing a reactionary force to provide superior gripping performance. Wedge Drive 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 tubular.
