The PETOL™ SURGRIP™ BELT TONG™ Strap Wrench was originally developed for use in high torque offshore makeup and breakout applications and has become widely accepted due to its use of lightweight composite belts which weigh significantly less than heavy link chains. The straps are safer, grip better and are capable of delivering higher torques and do not rust or corrode. Additionally, the strap will not “fly apart” even if the BELT TONG strap wrench is over-torqued or broken. While torque will vary according to diameter, tong sizes are available capable of delivering up to 165,600 ft.-lbs. of torque with composite straps to accommodate pipe sizes from 5" to 72" O.D.
The PETOL BELT TONG strap wrench is extremely easy to use. The lightweight strap, an adjustable hanger that keeps the wrench in perfect balance for easy application and ratcheting, and a pin that quickly latches and unlatches the strap, combine to make operating the wrench a snap. In fact, it’s so easy only two rig personnel are required.
Each BELT TONG strap wrench comes equipped with two PETOL Diamond Point Inserts which can be quickly changed out when necessary. The SCT1020, SCT1020H, SCT1838 and SCT2036 can be adjusted to grip the main body of the pipe or the pipe coupling.
Prior to shipment, every BELT TONG strap wrench is load tested and magnetic particle inspected (MPI).
For added safety, PETOL™ Grip Assembly are available as an accessory for the PETOL BELT TONG strap wrench.
