Radial Load Eliminator (RLE)
Eliminates radial load on the joint which causes torque to be lost and axial twist through the joint which may result in cross threading damage.
Bi-Directional Compression Load Cell System Option:
Two load cells which enable the operator to measure torque in both directions.
Dual Size Capability:
On the 10-5/8 in model and larger the backup system incorporates a dual jaw position, which makes the backup capable of biting the casing and the coupling with the same jaws.
The backup utilizes a three jaw biting system providing equal force on all jaws for an optimum bite.
Standard on the 6 in model and may be ordered for other models.
The backup is shown mounted below a Universe power tong but may also be mounted below other tongs.
