• Bowen™ Coarse Thread Safety Joint

     

     

    Description

     The Bowen™ Coarse Thread Safety Joint allows quick release from the following strings should they become stuck: 

    • Drilling
    • Fishing
    • Testing
    • Washover
    • Tubing

    This leaves minimal pipe in the hole, thereby reducing the problems of fishing or sidetracking. The new design is simple, eliminating the need of a release ring mechanism and lengthy disengagement procedures.

    Features/Benefits

    The Safety Joint has a rugged coarse thread design which will not loosen or wedge during operation. Once in the string the Safety Joint is resistant to vibration, heavy loads, and left or right-hand torque. The tool will disengage by simple left hand rotation at approximately 40% of the tool's right-hand make-up torque. O-ring packers above and below threads seal against internal and external fluid pressures. Both packers are rated for all normal pump pressures in continuous service.
