CD ROD TONG™
(Circumferential Displacement Sucker Rod Tong)
One continuous movement spinning to shoulder and then continuing to a mechanical set point stop that is circumferential displacement! Every time. Replaces existing floor sucker rod tongs. Works with any service or work over rig hydraulic system. No electrical required. Current tongs were never designed to stop at shoulder, recognize shoulder or move to any predetermined position beyond shoulder. They were mechanically engineered to deliver speed and approximate torque. The Automated Rig Technologies CD Rod Tong has been designed to spin to shoulder and once shoulder has been reached the tong seamlessly transitions to move a set distance (CD) that is operator adjustable. This tong will make up single or double connections and is fully mechanical, meaning there are no electronics on the tong. This leads to quicker and easier field maintenance and repairs. Optional electronic monitoring and data acquisition can be installed however is not critical to the operation of the tong.
