Safety Joint allows quick release from drilling, fishing, testing, washover, or tubing strings should they become stuck, leaving a minimum of 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.
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. The Safety Joint is available in a full range of sizes, types, lengths, etc. Moreover, we can provide the tool to fit customer's exact requirements.
