Cold Root Rolling for a Better ROI

Your drill string is your lifeline. It's a critical component of your business and it needs to be in operation if you want to make money. The failure of offshore drilling connections is an expensive mistake, costing upwards of $250,000 per day. It's highly unlikely such a problem would be repaired in a single day, so if the drilling rig is down for the average of six days it will cost at least $1.5 million.

Common Cold Rolling Terminology

Posted by CJWinter on Aug 7, 2018 9:51:50 AM

What is Cold Root Rolling? 

Cold root rolling is the process of burnishing the root radius of a previously cut thread, in a Rotary Shouldered Connection or thread profile.   A hardened roll, similar in profile to the thread being manufactured, is placed in contact with the root radius of the tapered thread, and pressure is applied to force the roller to penetrate into the cut surface of the root radius, displacing and cold-forming the thread material.  This deformation cold-works the material, imparting an improved surface finish and compacts and displaces the grains of the root material.
