Tong Torque Gauges & Tong Line Pull 

 

Tong Torque measurement systems  prevent tubular failure by accurate measuring torque applied during make up and break out operations.   In order to prevent under and over torquing, each tong torque system consists of a hydraulic load cell (tension or compression type), hose assembly, 6″ fluid filled gauge with damper assembly, and 1 quart of Crown Oilfield Instrumentation all-weather instrument fluid. The two main types of Tong Torque Systems are:

Tong Line Pull Gauges

Our Tong Line Pull Gauges measure torque in pounds of line pull for drill collars, tool joints, and drill string components. With this system, drillers can measure the line pull when there are two sets o tongs being used with different handle lengths, ensuring proper torque in these situations.   Crown’s 6” fluid-filled gauge reads directly in pounds of line pull which works in conjunction with a load cell that is connected directly to the tong handle. As each joint is made up, line pull is converted to a hydraulic pressure signal within the cylinder and sent to the gauge via a rubber hose, the gauge displays this signal as pounds of line pull. The gauge comes complete with a target pointer that the driller sets to a corresponding torque requirement. A large variety of systems are available with up to 30,000 pounds of single line pull. English, Metric, or dual scale systems are available.

Tong Torque Gauges

Crown Tong Torque Gauges Indicate torque in foot pounds applied to each joint when using power tongs to run oilfield tubulars. Being available for all makes and models, there is a Crown tong torque gauge that’s right for every application.  Our systems come with either compression or tension type load cells that help the system to provide an accurate check of make up torque. Rugged, simple load cell designs guarantee extra long life and ease of maintenance.  Our gauges come in a variety of measurements and dual scale variations are also available.All of our tong systems come equipped with  a Tension or Compression Load Cell, 6” fluid filled Gauge, 5’ hydraulic hose (additional hose lengths available), and 1quart of Crown Oilfield Instrumentation all-weather instrument fluid.
