Thread / Seal Coating
A rust preventive thread coating is applied to maintain the integrity of the tubular threads and seals, either API-approved or customer specified, to protect the threads and seals in storage and transit. Thread coating is applied to ALL pin and box threads, seals and pin ID’s.
API Thread Gauging and Inspection
A hardened and precision ground profile gauge is mated to all threads at a minimum of four locations around the circumference of the threads to confirm the proper thread form.
Mill Slotting and Serialization
When requested we will cut a round or elongated slot into the body or tool joints of drill stem components before stamping an assigned serial number into the slot with a 3/8" steel die stamp. A slotted drill specifically designed for this use is employed and allows our operators to go on-site and perform the job at the clients location. Client specifications are followed.
We can provide a variety of machine shop services through an affiliate company offering:
- Precision Oilfield Grinding
- Other Specialty Grinding Services as Requested.

Portable Refacing Unit
All of our mobile units are outfitted with seal refacing equipment. We perform seal refacing to ALL of the tubulars that we inspect. Many inspection companies reface only the severely damaged seals, we leave all of your seals looking brand new with a machine finish. This process removes imperfections and washes on the seals and increases the life span of tool joints.
