OTW-13CF has a Crack-Free Design, smooth surface with low friction properties and a microstructure designed to achieve a good balance between casing friendly and tool wear, whilst remaining a cost-effective solution.
OTW-13CF has a casing wear resistance that is superior to currently established Non-Cracking wires, whilst retaining a competitive level of all round tool wear resistance. It achieves this with a slag-free deposit that precipitates a dense dispersion of hard, primary niobium and complex CrMo carbide phases finely distributed in a martensitic/residual austenitic matrix. The good resistance to high stress abrasion and erosion even when combined with heavy impact or pressure, are typical conditions that can be expected in an open hole or cased hole environment. OTW-13CF is ideally suited to intermediate to advanced hardbanding applications.
OTW-13CF is an exclusive, gas shielded, metal cored alloy wire may be reapplied over itself to refurbish worn drill pipes after drilling operations and also any of the OTW range. The Flexible Application Designed (FAD) feature implies greater fl exibility for the hardbander and signifi cant cost savings in old hardbanding removal and pipe preparation.
