The RL-GT is a new Baker Hughes technology. It is a family of gas-tight connectors with an internal shoulder and OD spanning both surface and conductor casing sizes, with available sizes ranging from 20" to 30" OD. It is designed to meet pipe capacity, proven via industry standard testing. Single-start thread and available DNV RP0034 materials provide improved fatigue performance.
The RL-GT is a family of gas-tight connectors qualfied to meet rated pipe capacity via proven validation testing. Family qualification allows for offerings ranging from 20-30" OD. Optional elastomer sealing options are available.
An internal shoulder and optimized design reduce connector weight while maintaining premium capacity performance.
Integral hands-free anti-rotation provides up to 100 kip-ft torque resistance.
Optimized single-start threads allow for high compressive capacity and available DNV RP0034 materials imrpove the fatigue performance versus comparable offerings.
Product validation testing and product line extension per API 5C5, 2017. Fatigue validation testing performed per DNV C203.
