FLUID GRIP® Remote Tong System

FLUID GRIP® Remote Tong System

The FLUID GRIP® Remote Tong System was developed to address the challenges associated with corrosion-resistant alloy tubulars, with added remote-controlled operation to enhance safety.

Features and Benefits

Remote controlled operation of FLUID GRIP® technology allows our operator and personnel to operate the system from a safe distance from the rotary and red zone

The Collar Load Support (CLS™) handling system allows for a complete non-marking tubular running and handling system

The remote controlled FLUID GRIP® modular cassette integrates into the wide track carriage system to quick-change the tong cassette and accommodate a wide range of casing and tubing sizes

Non-metallic and truly non-marking gripping system completely eliminates die penetration to reduce corrosion on completion tubing

Provides an even distribution of gripping pressure around the tube body and conforms to the tube shape to reduce stress, distortion and galling
