PETOL™ Tong Jack

Portable Tong Jack.

The PETOL™ TONG JACK is a portable, pneumatic powered unit designed for use on threaded material having multiple make-up or break-out points. In addition, the use of “cheaters” or overhead hoists is eliminated when working connections that cannot be made up or broken out by hand.

The unit is suitable for use with a variety of PETOL Tongs to meet specific torque, diameter, and gripping width requirements and is capable of producing up to 3,500 lbs. of force. The Tong Jack includes a gauge that reads out in PSI and a chart to convert to pounds of force. The torque being applied depends on the torque arm length of the tong being used.

Selected tongs are held in place with a quick release pin making change out easy. Linkage and release pins are adaptable for both clevis and loop-style handles.

The TJA35 is designed to lift the tong handle 23 to 39 inches (approx.) above the floor. For workpiece connections at a greater height, the TJA35T is capable of lifting the tong handle 35 to 51 inches (approx.) above the floor.
