Acadiana Joint Torque Gauge with Tension Load Cell

Provides Accurate Measurement Systems that Reduce Drill Collar and Tool Failure

Acadiana Oilfield Instruments Tong Torque System measures the torque applied to the tubing, drill collars, drill pipe, and casing during the production of the joints. Getting these indications help to minimize the drill collar and tool joint failure resulting from a bad build process.
