The Best Horizontal Drill Rod
Our manufacturing processes includes 1-Piece Forged and Inertia Welded drill rod.
- 1-Piece Internal & External (IEU) Forged Drill Pipe
Our IEU integral forged or 1-Piece forged drill pipe is made up solely from one piece of material. The pipe has the same chemical makeup for the threaded connections and the mid-body tube with no weld zone between them.
- Inertia Welded Drill Pipe
Inertia welded drill pipe is made from three separate pieces that include the mid-body tube and two threaded connections or tool joints. The interim weld process is a solid-state welding technique that forges metal together without causing a melt to occur. Because there is no melt product produced during the inertia weld, there is no recast metal or grain enlargement after the weld is completed.
