Oil Country Tubular Goods Full Scale Test Center
The OCTG (Oil Country Tubular Goods) Full Scale Testing Center at ITE tests tubulars and devices in full scale under combined service loads and extreme conditions. The state-of-the-art research and third-party testing facility consists of a High Pressure Autoclave, a Medium Pressure Autoclave, High and Medium Capacity Combined Load Frames, a Coiled-Tubing and Fatigue Combined Load Testing Frame and an OCTG Make-Up and Break-Out Center. Each of the facilities has its own unique characteristics.
The testing center, since its establishment along with ITE in 1983, is the only of its kind as part of a university.
