For the first time, the same software NOV GrantPrideco engineers use to generate drill string specs will be at your fingertips.
The new format drill string specifications provide a holistic approach to rating drill string components.
These specs present the torsional and tensile operational envelope for an entire joint of drill pipe.
Traditionally this information was provided separately for the connection and the pipe body.
It was left to the end user to correctly determine the limiting factors, leaving room for misinterpretation.
Along with being easier to interpret, our performance sheets provide additional information (elevator capacity, slip crushing capacity, and much more).
With the online software you can generate performance sheets for any percentage of pipe body you need.
You can base your specs on the percent pipe body you are inspecting to and the combined loading numbers will be provided.
The same easy to understand format is presented for all our products (drill pipe, heavy weight drill pipe, drill collars, subs, etc.). Enjoy.
