The most frequent cause of drill string failure is incorrect make up. By accurately and consistently monitoring the make up torque, the driller can dramatically reduce the number of failures. The Tong Torque is a 5" instrument which works in conjunction with a load cell mounted in the line connected to one of the tongs. As each joint is made up, line pull is converted to a hydraulic pressure signal within the cylinder. This is transmitted to the gauge. The gauge has a target pointer and gives the driller an accurate and reliable measurement of the make up of each component in the drill string.
