OCTG Connection Test Center II
The RP V connection testing frame is the bigger test facility designed for testing the gas tightness of tubular connections under extreme conditions. The facility is also able to perform tensile tests to failure with the following additional loads: Internal pressure (up to 350 MPa), bending (up to 500 kNm), torque (up to 70 kNm) and temperature (max. 300 °C). Specimens up to 185/8" diameter can be tested in the frame. The maximum applicable tensile force is 20 MN.
