Matherne Instrumentation’s power tong system is designed to assure uniform and proper make-up of the string by indicating accurate torque applied to each joint when running pipe or casing.
The system can help reduce drill collar and tool joint failure resulting from improper make-up. The system includes a 6” tong torque indicator with bracket, a standard 5 ft. hose, and a tension or compression load cell.
The convenient mounting design allows the gauge to be mounted in a driller’s console, in a weight indicator box, locally on the power tong, or stand alone. The 6” dial face is available with combination dual scales for added versatility.
