The PETOL HYDRAULIC FRICTION BREAKOUT UNIT will not mar the surface of the parts being made up and broken out. Each hydraulic SURGRIP Friction Tong and Vise Bushing is bored to grip a specific O.D. by friction alone. The units are powered by an electric motor and have a pressure gauge that reads out in ft.-lbs. of torque and PSI. For added safety, a controlled pressure relief valve allows the operator to adjust the working pressure for each job. When the set pressure is accomplished the system stops torquing.
NOTE: Maximum working loads range from 500 ft.-lbs. to 5,000 ft.-lbs. depending on size of tong being used.
