Detailed Description

Power Tong System

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 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.
