Hughes Xtra Hole - Non Preferred Rotary Shouldered Connection

Helpful Tips

  • Use proper thread inspection tools and procedures to ensure the quality and integrity of the connection. Use a preferred thread inspection system that can measure the key attributes of the thread which include pitch diameter, lead, taper and height.
  • Apply the correct amount of thread compound and torque when making up the connection. Too much or too little compound or torque can cause galling, stress cracking or leakage. Follow the manufacturer’s specifications and guidelines for the optimal values.
  • Avoid using damaged or worn-out connections. These can compromise the performance and safety of the drill string. Inspect the connections regularly and replace them as needed.
  • Do not mix different types of connections or thread forms that are not compatible
