API Thread Gauging

Star Pipe Service has API approved gauges. Thread gauging is a process where special guages are used to measure the lead, height, and taper of a machined thread for acceptance.

  -This is most commonly done on casing, but can be used on tubing, drill pipe, and drill collar threads as well.

  -Thread gauging should be an important consideration on deep wells, especially on large diameter casing. The larger pipe diameters are likely to exhibit ovality. This can cause improper make-up, thread damage, and failure.

  -We are proficient at these techniques.
