HARDBANDING / INTERNAL PLASTIC COATING / MAKE AND BREAK / DRILL COLLAR HARDBANDING
Heavy weight drill pipe (HWDP) is the industry standard for an intermediate weight drill stem member. It reduces the risk of drill pipe fatigue failure by providing a gradual transition in stiffness when run above the drill collars.
HWDP uses a unique centre upset or wear pad that keeps the tube away from the hole wall, increasing tube life while reducing hole drag and differential sticking problems.
We can supply HWDP manufactured using an integral (manufactured from a single bar) or welded (tool joints are welded on) process.
We offer a wide variety of sizes from 3⅛” to 9½”, spiralled or slick, and with API and premium connections. Drill collars can be tailored to specific requirements and are constructed from a solid bar of AISI 4145H modified alloy steel. All our new drill collars are furnished with mill certification, which we backup digitally in case certificates get misplaced.
