HYDRAULIC FLUID
The power unit during operation heats the hydraulic fluid. If the reservoir temperature
(seen in Figure 2) exceeds 150 degrees Fahrenheit, shut down the unit and let it cool.
If this happens regularly, have unit repaired.
Be careful not to expose skin to hot hydraulic fluid – it can
scald
The hydraulic fluid may be under pressures as high as 2500 psi.
Fluid can be sprayed some distance, creating a slip hazard. If a leak
occurs, shut down the power unit immediately and repair. Hydraulic
fluid can irritate the skin – for skin contact, wash and rinse the
affected area. If fluid comes in eye contact, use an emergency

INSTALLATION
1) Location
1a) find the right location(s) for the cylinder assembly and power unit
1b) determine whether unpright or inverted mounting is best in this application
1c) build an appropriate bracing structure and install the cylinder
2) place the power unit, connect power, and make hydraulic connections to the
cylinder and control box
3) install the wireline assembly
4) test the unit for proper operation
Locating the cylinder and power unit (1a) is a matter of function and safety. The
cylinder, wireline and bracing should be aligned so that they will be in a straight line
when the tong is at 90 degrees. While the cylinder will swivel on the backup post (and
does in operation), the cylinder needs to start out aligned.
OM010-B
www.TEXASINTERNATIONAL.com

Installation continued
Figure 3
The longer the wireline is, the more efficient the cylinder will be – especially with
shorter tongs. When the tong is at an angle other than 90 degrees the same line pull
gives less torque. The wireline’s recommended minimum is eleven (11) feet.
The cylinder has a maximum pull of over 35,000 pounds of force. The cylinder location
therefore must be tied to a structure capable of handling that force without damage or
safety hazard. Drawworks skid beams are commonly used.

Figure 4: Cylinder dimensions
The cylinder extends 25”. In the upright position, this typically requires a hole in the
floor and no obstructions below. In the inverted position, clearance is needed
overhead. The cable in either installation has to be at tong height. The upright position
is preferred because it 1) takes the least space, 2) requires the least bracing material,
3) is easier to service, and 4) uses less connection hose. However, rig conditions may
make the inverted installation more practical. The cylinder’s supporting structure is not
provided. See construction suggestions to follow.
Figure 5: Cylinder installation
OM010-B

Installation continued
All bracing structure material (1c) should be ASTM A36 or better and should be easily
weldable. Side bracing must be added to ensure cylinder is in a straight line. The
supplied anchor adapter plate and backup post are suitable for welding to bracing
material and drawworks skid beams.
Welding to be performed by a qualified welder, utilizing proper
materials and technique. Failure to properly weld the anchor adapter
plate, the backup post, or the bracing structure could lead to failure of
the cylinder unit causing serious or fatal injury or property damage.
TIOT does not take responsibility for faulty welds or improper bracing
Figure 6; Typical installation
Slide the cylinder onto the backup post and install the top anchor plate and the two (2)
pins (see Figure 7). Add the retaining nut and two (2) cotter keys. The retaining nut
need not be super tight. Use a drop of Loctite ® or silicone sealer to keep it in place.

The hydraulic power unit requires three (3) phase 460 volts AC. The motor can be
requested for 230/220 volts but 460 provides
better performance. The hydraulic hoses to the
cylinder can be lengthened to 50 feet without
affecting cylinder operation, but the five (5)
control hoses should remain at 25 feet as
longer hoses will adversely affect cylinder
reaction time. The top connections are for the
control hoses, those on the side are for
cylinder hoses. Electrical is connected through
the top of the control box. The connections and
control switch should be easy to reach. The
fluid temperature gauge and filter condition
indicator is

power unit (step #2) securely by either bolting or
welding it to the rig floor. The unit requires
ventilation and secure routing of the five (5) control
hoses and two (2) cylinder hoses.

Main breaker must be off and “locked out” until all wiring and wiring
inspection is done. Wiring must be performed by a qualified, licensed
electrician.
To connect power (step #2), remove the
starter faceplate and install the power cord
cable, attaching the three (3) leads to
terminals L1, L2, and L3 as shown in Figure

2) Remove both of the sheave guards. 3) Feed the line around the fixed end of the
sheave (shown top in Figure 13), down through the wireline guide and around the rod
end sheave and back up through the slot in the cylinder head. 4) Pull the line through
to remove the slack. 5) Maintaining no slack in the line, form a loop as shown in Figure
13, feeding the slack end back through the cylinder head. 6) Place the wireline wedge
in the loop and in the opening in the cylinder head (Figure 15) 7) Hold the tong in the

the sheave guards. 9) Latch the tongs around
the collars (or fasten the loop end of the line
so it can’t move) and activate the cylinder to
pull the wedge tight into place. If the line
length is less than eleven (11) feet, knock out
the wedge and redo steps 6 through 8. 10)
When the wireline is properly adjusted, excess
cable can be cut off.

OPERATION
Once the hydraulic power unit is started, the operation of the cylinder is controlled by
the control box. The lever is a spring return to center. Pushing the lever one direction
will extend the cylinder (make up stroke) and pushing the lever in the opposite direction
will retract the cylinder (reset).
Fully extend and retract the cylinder several times to purge air from the
system
Set desired line pull using the calibration table (see Table 6) by determining the
effective tong arm length (see Figure 3) and torque required for connections based on
torque table (see Table 7). Figure the pressure setting for that torque (based on tong
size). Extend and hold fully extended the cylinder with no load on the wireline. Turn the
pressure adjusting knob until the pressure gauge reads the required pressure. Unit is
now set.
PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE
This is a suggested PM schedule. The tool owner has the responsibility to
adjust the program according to actual tool usage
For hydraulic units, disconnect lines and drain system’s pressure before
maintenance.
Normal wear in course of use will eventually reduce the cylinder’s capability. Cracks or
the appearance of damage on the wireline can indicate the need for repair, even
impending failure, and requires prompt attention.
Daily – While in use
 Apply EP 4 grease to prevent corrosion on wireline and grease fittings on
cylinder
 Verify power unit and control box are in a secure and safe location
 Visually check wireline for broken wires, kinks, crushing, bird cages, corrosion,
abrasion or any other abnormal condition – if found, replace
 Ensure wireline is routed so there no potential of 1) a pinching hazard and 2)
anyone being trapped between the wireline and the rig structure

Preventative Maintenance continued
 Inspect the cylinder mounting for cracked welds, bent or distorted mounting
components, excessive corrosion, leaks, worn hoses or connections, etc – if
found, repair/replace
 Verify power cables and hydraulic hoses are not a trip hazard and can’t be
pinched or cut
 Check for exposed wires and that electrical connections are secure
 Visually inspect the cylinder sheaves for excessive wear or abrasive material
which damage the wireline
 Verify the sheaves rotate freely and sheave guards are in place and properly
fastened to the cylinder
 Check cylinder for hydraulic fluid leaks – correct before operating
 Visually check cylinder rod (unpainted chromed surface) for damage (dings or
burrs) that could damage the bearing or internal seals – if found, pull from
operation and replace
 Keep the power unit exterior clean of oil, dust, dirt, water or chemicals
 Verify the hydraulic fluid level in the reservoir – fill as needed
Wireline is sharp. Wireline should not be checked by running a hand, gloved or
not, over the surface.
Quarterly
 Replace filter or earlier if the filter’s indicator gauge shows a dirty element (before
needle is in the red). Gauge and filter is shown in Figure 19.
 Change the hydraulic fluid every three (3) to six (6) months – see recommended
fluid on Table 8. Clean diffuser and strainer by rinsing with solvent and drying. If
cleaning is not effective, replace
