The Wellmaster Press x Press couplings have met product validation requirements and received provisional approval for use in Florida. Following this important milestone, we are now seeking listing of the Wellmaster Press x Press in state regulations as an approved casing connection.
Press x Press casing connections are no-thread, no-weld couplings that drop onto end casing while driving thus eliminating additional time and expenses. In-field testing demonstrated Wellmaster Press x Press coupling’s ability to reduce casing installation time by greater than 60%. With receipt of provisional approval, the Press x Press is rapidly becoming the casing connection of choice across the state of Florida.
Press x Press Casing Connection Tests
Rigorous lab and in-field tests were conducted in partnership with Lambton Water Research Centre and drillers in Florida and Ontario Canada to demonstrate Wellmaster Press x Press coupling’s ability to provide equivalent quality casing connectivity when compared to threaded couplings or electrical welding methods. API certified non-destructive hydrotesting confirmed Press x Press casing connections are watertight at various pressures up to casing maximum pressure tolerances. Certified laboratory pull testing confirmed that Press x Press couplings met minimum strength requirements. Additionally, in-field driller testing identified that Press x Press couplings provide a more resilient connection during installation and increase driller health and safety given the simplified installation process and significantly reduced casing installation time.
Overall, Wellmaster Press x Press couplings are an optimal solution in casing advancement. They are watertight, surpass the minimum strength requirements and offer a resilient, secure connection while reducing casing installation time by more than 60% in some applications.
