Drillstring Toolbox App
We have always provided our customers with the tools necessary to prevent failures, from complex inter-disciplinary engineering design to experience-based recommendations. We’ve recognized the need for drilling people to have the right information at their fingertips for making decisions that will affect the structural integrity of their string, and we’re working to provide you with those very tools.
As part of that, we’re proud to offer our free Drillstring Toolbox app that runs on iPhone®, iPad®, and Android™ devices. It allows you to quickly and easily find the makeup torque for your drill stem connections, no matter the size or component. Not only that, the app will give you the tensile capacity for the connection when made up to the API-recommended makeup torque. You can also find the tensile and torsion capacity for typical sizes, weights, and grades of drill pipe tubes.
The Drillstring Toolbox app puts the information to help you prevent failures within your reach—in your pocket, in fact.
Check out the Premium version of the app, too! It does everything the free version does, plus:
- It allows you to change the makeup torque to whatever you like to see how the performance of the connection is affected.
- It gives you the seal stress in the connection, which you can adjust with different makeup torques and bevel diameters.
- The tubes can also be customized to determine the tensile and torsional capacities there.
There is a combined load curve that you can use to optimize your makeup torques—and then email the curve itself to whomever needs it.
It’s available now on Android; we’re working on it for iPhone (stay tuned).
DS-1 Acceptance Criteria App
Volume 3 of DS-1 is our most popular standard; it gives you the inspection methods and procedures that are so critical to the success of your projects. It also has a big list of information about the acceptance criteria—good and bad—for tubes, tool joints, and connections.
We have an electronic version of Volume 3 that you can get, but sometimes you just need to know what’s good and what’s bad. So we’ve developed a reference app that gives you those criteria, both for iPhone and for Android. Check it out!
