Product#: 1008493 Brand Weatherford

Discount Price: $56,400



The Weatherford 24-50 high-torque casing tong provides 50,000 ft-lb (67,790 N•m) of torque capacity for running and pulling 10 3/4- to 24-in. casing. The tong has a unique gated rotary that completely encircles the casing to provide greater circumferential coverage, a smaller footprint, and lighter overall weight than conventional tong designs. For added safety, the hydraulic door interlock prevents tong operation while the doors are open or unlatched. The 24-50 tong is capable of fully mechanized remote operation or semimechanized operation and is completely compatible with all Weatherford automated tong-positioning systems, including the patented* PowerFrame® and PowerScope® systems.


  • Running and pulling 10 3/4- to 24-in. casing
  • Making up and breaking out connections with high-torque requirements
  • Performing offline or moonpool casing makeup operations


  • The gated rotary completely encloses the casing to distribute gripping forces over a greater area, ensure a positive grip without pipe deformation or pipe marking problems, and avoid the risk of costly repairs.
  • The integral hydraulic backup grips pipe and couplings without crushing, which saves repair costs.
  • The tong design eliminates the need for large manual rig tongs as backup when running casing, which enhances personal safety.
  • The patented free-floating backup design virtually eliminates shearing and bending when making up or breaking out connections. That reduces casing deformation and promotes long-term wellbore integrity.
  • The tong is compatible with Weatherford JAMPro™ torque
  • control systems.
  • The versatile tong design enables running of casing in the moonpool or offline on rigs requiring these activities.
