Eckel offers several models of torque control systems that are used to monitor the torque turn values when making up tubular connections (Tubing, Casing, & Drill Pipe). Any flaws in the make-up process will be readily shown in a graph.
CT 3000 Computerized Torque Control System
The CT 3000LT features high resolution graphics with two 16 bit processors and a choice or four makeup programs. All PC hardware options are available in a unit that can be built to customer hardware specifications. Several "add-on" modules such as internal pressure testing, and accessories for hazardous area operations are available. Software is "User Friendly" allowing shortened training for field technicians.
CT 4500 Computerized Torque Control System
The CT 4500 Computerized Torque Control System is set up, programmed and operated by the tong or bucking unit technician and mounts directly on the tong and does not require an operator. The unit features real-time graphics and can generate a hard copy report either while running or after job completion. Like all of our products, this unit was designed, programmed and manufactured in house. The CT 4500 model features a tong mounted graphic system that requires no additional"on-site" personnel, as the CT4500 can be operated by the tong operator. Solid state technology and a 16 bit processor generates "real-time" graphics, LCD display of torque, and produces a hard copy report.
TRIP MASTER Computerized Torque Control System
The TripMaster offers an affordable method of assuring that proper torque is applied to Casing, Tubing, Drill Pipe, Drill Collar or Sucker Rod connections. Torque readings taken from an in-line Load Cell are sampled at a rate of 2,500 per second. When a preset value is reached, a Hydraulic or Pneumatic Dump Valve is activated with a response time of 35 milliseconds. Mounted on the tong or at the drillers console and operated by the tong operator or driller, the TripMaster displays torque applied to the connection in "real time" through the LCD screen. The TripMaster's 16 bit processor and solid state technology monitors torque, "fires" an electronically activated dump valve, and generates a hard copy report for permanent documentation.
