PIPE CO. ·
a tradition of customer-driven
innovation, we now offer a flush joint connection
which combines several key
features found in our other
threads. Inter-Mountain Speed Casing (IMSC) stabs
easily, makes up quickly (over 30% faster than HW) and
resists back-off without sacrificing joint strength.
years and several hundred thousand feet of flush joint experience led to a
combination of our tapered flush (IMTF) and the old standby "W"
(DCDMA) thread form to satisfy a variety of needs with one product.
Inter-Mountain Threading Vice President Greg Breed says:
was designed to meet the requirements of the mines and the drilling
contractors. The improvements for the mines are in strength and
durability. Increased strength comes from a two degree loading flank and
also more thread engagement. Better durability is achieved by reducing
the angle of taper to maintain more body wall at pin and box nose and
establishing a 45 degree stabbing flank (thus reducing handling damage).
The root and crest are designed with clearance to minimize galling due to
friction and foreign matter. The major benefit to the drilling
contractors is the speed of make-up. Other considerations are less time
pampering the threads, field dressing of damaged threads, and lower torque
pressures for proper makeup and break out of connections."
Consider the advantages of SPEED
CASING: Less connection time, fewer
damaged threads and better recovery.
