Hydro-Mech Rotary Torque
Contact Instruments' Hydraulic Rotary Torque System commonly referred to as a "HydroMech" is designed for rigs that use a chain driven rotary table.
By utilizing Contact's Hydraulic Rotary Torque system drillers are able to detect changes in rotary torque and eliminate twist offs.
Each system consists of an Idler unit with mounting pads, rubber wheel and a 2' hose. The idler assembly is mounted under the rotary chain and is connected to a 6" fluid filled gauge via a 25' high pressure hose A steel sprocket is optional for those cases where a rubber wheel is not practicle.
