CONNECTIONS

JD Rush Corporation offers a variety of connections such as API, Semi-Premium and Premium connections along with technical support beside you every step of the way. In conjunction with our partner company, Metal One, we have Semi Premium connections such as GEOCONN, FLUSHMAX/MO-FXL and SUPERMAX.

We are a stocking distributor that maintains a large OCTG inventory from 2 3/8” tubing through 20” casing. This inventory is inclusive of a diverse size and grade range; both ERW and seamless manufacturing process and a mill supply base from both domestic and foreign sources. Our personnel have extensive knowledge of pipe management programs, logistics, API and premium end-nish tubulars, ID/OD specialty coatings, inspection protocols and tubular accessories.

Features:

  • Interchangeable with API Buttress
  • Internally flush
  • Pin Abutment results in high resistance to over-torque, more than 3 times as high as API Buttress.
  • Pin abutment results in high resistance to compression
  • Gas-tight seal under compression
  • Mill end is made up further than eld end to avoid mill end rotation when make up eld end
  • Precise make-up position control reduces hoop stress on the coupling
  • User friendly operation on the rig:
    Make up with torque control like a premium connection

Applications:

  • Casing for Geothermal Wells
  • Liner for Horizontal Wells
  • Casing for Heavy Oil Recovery such as SAGD
  • Drilling with Casing

Low Cost & High Performance. SUPERMAX is tubing connection with avaiable size range from 1.900″ to 4-1/2″. As API Buttress pin thread move axially, high contact pressure cannot be induced on the load falnks. Load and stabbing flanks of SUPERMAX threads contact and high contact pressure is energized on both flanks upon make up same as API 8 Round threads.

Features:

  • Non-upset tubing: SUPERMAX is threaded and coupled type connection which eliminates upsetting and normalizing processes from manufacturing cycle
  • Easy threading: Short length thread, easy machining and repair provided by patented thread form.
  • Extended product life: Elimination of upset ends does not limit number of repairs.
  • Small coupling OD: Allows use of larger OD tubing than EUE, which improves production of oil & gas and reduces friction loss during well stimulation.
  • Resistance to galling: Provides multiple make and break capabilities

Applications:

  • Production tubing where API EUE tubing is normally specified.
  • Low-pressure gas-well applications
  • Tubing for high-pressure fracturing jobs.
  • Tubing for thermal applications.
  • Clearance programs where smaller OD than API EUE is desired but joint strength must be higher than API EUE.
  • Reclamation of API EUE tubing with insufficient upset length

Low Cost & High Performance Flush Connection. FLUSHMAX series have “SUPERMAX” thread which provides high leak resistance. Also, as FLUSHMAX series can be used up to the limited tensile load ( 60% of pipe body tension ) especially used for liner, shoulders do not open and work as metal to metal seal.

Features:

  • Available size: 1.66” – 4”
  • Completely flush OD & ID
  • Thread seal connection:
    Same thread form as SUPERMAX
    2° load and 45° stabbing angle
  • Tension: 38-50% of pipe body yield
  • Compression: more than 60% of pipe body yield
  • Internal pressure: 80% of pipe body internal yield pressure
  • Collapse: API Collapse pressure

Casting Applications:

  • Lining
  • Screen Pipe
  • Side Tracking
  • Casing Repair
