Thread Check Inc. offers Gagemaker tapered pitch daimeter gages for accurately measuring P.D. connections on pipe threads. Inspectors are able to measure the P.D. on new and and used pipe threads. Using a pin location profile (LPP) and a PD 8000 RSC Series gage or a box location profile (LPB) with an IT-5104-RSC, the inspector is able to pinpoint early signs of stress, perform preventative maintenance and thus extend the life of their drill string connections. Using a Gagemaker tapered pitch diameter gages, operators can accurately control the connection's size during manufacturing and thus insure the thread cones assemble into interference properly when the connections ore torqued together.
In the past, pitch diameter has been commonly ignored as long as the ring or plug gage threaded to an acceptable standoff. With a pin location profile (LPP) and a PD-8000-RSC Series gage, the process of locating and measuring the pitch diameter takes less than a minute. This minute of inspection can quickly decide the difference between good and bad connections.
