Automated Hydraulic Tong GKSH-8000M Timerkul


Automated hydraulic drill tong  with software control GKSh-8000M Timerkul is designed for fast, safe making up and breaking out of drill pipes and casing with rated sizes from Ø73 mm (7/8") up to Ø219 mm (8 5/8"), controlled by an industrial PC controller with a real-time operating system Windows CE 7.0. Highly recommended for high-precision connections. Articulated arm, PLC control and a remote control function offer the optimum in safety and operational efficiency while simultaneously increasing drill pipe life. 

Features and competitive advantages 

  1. Remote control lets the unit to be operated from various rig floor positions using PLC, at a distance from potentially hazardous zone;
  2. Precise makeup, which greatly extends the service life of the drilling tool;
  3. Tong offers a PLC feature, which allows numerous torque values to be preset and selected with one touch of the operator interface;
  4. Automatic operation, as well manual operation for specific tasks when automatic operation is not possible; immediate shutdown capability if an unpredicted event occurs;
  5. Universal jaws allow handle a wide range of tubular sizes without changing dies;
  6. The unique articulated arm allows regulate the position of the Tong in height and length;
  7. It takes minimal space on the rig floor;
