This included the tool joint
ends and the cutoff section underwater and on land.
The new development, which is available in two versions -- basic and premium -- with five and eight-foot reach and 100 000 ft-lbf make-up torque/120 000 ft-lbf break-down torque, includes all essential functions for making up and breaking down tool joint
connections in less time, thus reducing downtime and increasing the efficiency of pipe handling operations.
The tool joint
and base are assembled by means of thermal shrinkage which results in high concentric accuracy (less than five microns) as well as the ability to transfer high torque and axial forces.
The patent pending 360-degree clamping system decreases slippage, tool joint
wear and pipe distortion to extend the life of the drill string.
Some of the services Superior Machine & Welding offers are aluminum welding, custom fabricating, gas and arc welding, marine propeller repair, tool joint
cutting and facing, oilfield equipment repair, and welding and sandblasting.
* For facing and turning a box tool joint
from hardened and tempered low alloy steel, cutting time per component was reduced by 62 percent, saving 92 cents per unit and $36.66 per batch.
Because special drill pipes and special tool joint
connectors are required, the cost of the drilling operation will be substantially increased.
Newly designed wrenches provide excellent gripping power and are open at the top to allow visibility of the tool joint
. A new rotary pipe guide extends pipe life.
