GB WSE 3P
GB HBE 3P

US Patent
7,347,459

Applications


Running  Standard Large OD Downhole Casing Applications

Rotating  To aid string advancement

Drilling  with Casing / Drilling with Liners

Driving


For use in abrasive environments.



Description

Specialty semi-premium connection machined from heavy-wall coupling stock. Like the GB CDE 3P, both the GB WSE 3P and GB HBE 3P Connection performances exceed that of standard API connections. Connection designed with 3-Pitch threadform for easy-stabbing, fast makeup without cross-threading. Innovative, triple taper thread design (box only) reduces localized bearing stresses in critical areas for improved fatigue resistance. Pin noses engage shoulders in the coupling center for positive indication of proper field makeup. Pin noses, designed for maximum bearing face area, provide high torque resistance.

GB WSE 3P has integral, sacrificial wear sleeve to protect the leading edge and critical areas of the connection that commonly wear during drilling operations. For the most abrasive environments the wear sleeve can be furnished with hard-facing (GB HBE 3P).

GB WSE 3P and GB HBE 3P

Drilling with Casing Connection

GB WSE 3P – Wear Sleeve Enhanced with GB 3P Thread
GB HBE 3P – Hardbanded Enhanced with GB 3P Thread

Features

  • Uses GB 3P threads.
  • Easy-stabbing, fast makeup without cross-threading.
  • Meets API Coupling OD and Drift Diameter Specifications.
