Texas Steel Double Shoulder (TSDS) High Torque connections are built to provide the additional torque and torsional strength for your drilling application.
TSDS High Torque Connections
Your Drilling Advantage
Enhanced Performance - Increases drilling performance through improved hydraulic capacity and exceptional torsional strength.
Versatile Compatibility - Interchangeable with API industry standard threads and certain other double shoulder connections.
Superior Torsional Strength - Torque capacity is 40% to 60% greater than standard API connections for comparable size drill pipe.
Exceptional Value - Providing lower initial product cost, lower cost of rework, reduced material cost and longer operational life.
Reduced Rig Time - Minimal make-up turns equal to API and special handling tools are not required.

|1. All data is calculated based on standard methods. No safety factor is applied.|
|2. Premium Class drill pipe data is based on a minimum wall thickness equal to 80% of new drill pipe nominal wall thickness, reference API RP7G.|
|3. Specified tool joint OD is smaller than the standard API tool joint for 4-1/2 drill pipe. New and/or used tool joint size might not be suitable for hoisting the drill string with a bottle neck elevator. User is advised to contact their elevator manufacturer for elevator hoist capacity rating versus tool joint OD.|
