• XLW-GT Connectors

    Description

    In response to an increasing number of surface casing applications that require gas pressure sealability, XL Systems now offers the XLW-GT (Gas Tight) connector. Featuring an optimized internal metal seal design machined on high strength pin and box forging material, XLW-GT raises the bar on large diameter connector seal performance under gas pressure loading. 

    Extensive ISO/FDIS 13679:2011 testing has been completed with gas on multiple sizes to CAL I-E requirements and confirmed seal integrity up to 95% of actual X80 pipe body internal pressure ratings.

    Utilizing the same wedge thread design as the widely used XLW connector, XLW-GT maintains 100% pipe body ratings in tension, compression, and bending. Since no anti-rotation feature installation is required due to the wedge thread design, strings are run faster and the risk of a dropped string from connector failure is minimized.
