Drill Collar Quality That Shows
Made from high quality Chinese or Japanese steel and manufactured to the latest version of API Spec 7-1, our drill collars are made for durability.
Full-length heat treatment and full-length non-destructive testing on each bar adds to this quality. Optional slip and elevator recesses processed to API RP7G increase handling efficiency and safety.
All drill collar connections are phosphate-coated or copper-coated to avoid galling.
Stress release grooves as per API Spec 7 lower the risk of connection failure by reducing stress on the box. Cold rolling on thread roots reduces stress and fatigue on the connection even more.
We offer hardbanding of drill collars with Arnco 100XT, Arnco 300XT, Tuboscope TCS 8000 and our own proprietary coating for increased service life and excellent casing wear protection. We would be happy to assist you in finding the right hardbanding solution.
Our drill collars are inspected by SGS prior to shipment. You only pay when quality is up to standard.
All API Drill Collars Available
Besides standard slick drill collars, we also manufacture other API drill collars for use in your special drilling operations.
Wall-sticking can be prevented by using spiral-grooved drill collars. Three grooves on the drill collar decrease the area of pipe in contact with the well walls but have little effect on the weight and strength of the pipe.
Non-Magnetic Drill Collars
Non-magnetic (Non-Mag) drill collars have become essential in directional drilling as they don’t interfere with BHA measurement equipment.
Made from stainless steel and tested for corrosion to ASTM A 262 practice E, our non-magnetic drill collars also withstand many corrosive environments.
Note: We also provide sour service drill collars and NS-1 drill collars. For more information, please feel free to contact us.
