Press x Press Couplings
Wellmaster’s no-thread, no-weld Press x Press couplings are made in Ontario and have helped drillers overcome challenges such as broken pipes, damaged threads, and work on artesian wells where threaded or weld-on-casting connections are problematic.
Wellmaster manufactures Press x Press couplings in 4 1/2”, 6 5/8”, and 7” diameters. We are developing a 6” version of the coupling to make the product more broadly applicable for the North American and global markets.
The Press x Press design has definitive advantages over existing options, including the ability to accommodate plain end rather than beveled or threaded casing and the fact it does not require welding.
The design allows for more durable and simpler systems to be used to make the same parts with fewer materials and in less time. This is particularly important in rural environments as it is a more field ready solution in areas where there is limited access to resources and materials.
The Press x Press couplings have a life expectancy of 50-100 years, which will have a significant social impact because of less pipeline damage and need for repairs, which means safer drinking water.
Wellmaster’s innovative and unique Press x Press attributes ultimately reduce input costs and project time versus conventional connections, resulting in increased profitability for drillers.
