Tenaris is expanding its Wedge Series 400 portfolio with the addition of TenarisHydril Wedge 425, an integral semi-flush connection, designed for enhanced efficiency in shale applications. The TenarisHydril Wedge 425 replaces TORQ SFW and joins Tenaris’s series of shale-specific connections with extreme torque and quick installation speeds TenarisHydril Wedge 463, TenarisHydril Wedge 441 and TenarisHydril Wedge 461.
The TenarisHydril Wedge 425 connection features a make-up indicator for easy make-up with no need of torque turn chart. Its intermediate metal-to-metal seal provides exceptional sealability for gas or liquid production and has been evaluated under Tenaris’s Testing Protocol for Multi-Fractured Horizontal Wells, aligned with API TR 5SF, to simulate fracking and production loads.
Like other TenarisHydril Wedge threads, TenarisHydril Wedge 425 design delivers nearly twice the torque and compression capacity of a traditional semi-flush product, minimizing rejects and re-makeups for faster and more reliable operations.
