Connection Thread compounds
Thread compounds are used for three distinct purposes: - to prevent corrosion of the connection parts during storage;
- to facilitate the running of connections during make-up/break-out;- to seal the helical paths in the thread profile of tapered interference fit thread seals
To serve the first purpose, storage compounds were developed. These compounds can only be used to protect against corrosion during the storage of the tubular, and should never be used as running compound.
To serve the second and third purposes, running compounds were developed. These running compounds . . .
