What types of drill pipe are there?

Drill pipe is a kind of steel pipe with threads at the end, which is mainly used for transmitting torque and conveying drilling fluid, and making the borehole deeper and deeper by the gradual lengthening of the drill pipe. According to different classification standards, drill pipe can be divided into the following categories:

- Categorized by structure:

Drill pipe is made of seamless steel pipe, with a wall thickness of 9 to 11 mm in general, and consists of two parts, the pipe body and the joint of the drill pipe, with the pipe body and the joint butt-welded together by friction welding.

- Classification by use:

Drill pipe occupies a very important position in oil drilling, and can be divided into three categories: square drill pipe, drill pipe and weighted drill pipe.

- Classification by material:

Geological drill pipes for coal mining are mainly divided into seven types: body grooved drill pipes, hexagonal hollow drill pipes, college combination drill pipes, coal drill pipes, cart drill pipes, water sounding drill stems and hydraulic drill pipes.

In practical application, the specific type of drill pipe will be selected according to the depth of drilling, geological conditions, borehole size and other factors. At the same time, in order to ensure the safety and smooth operation of drilling operations, the quality, strength, corrosion resistance and other properties of the drill pipe need to be strictly tested and controlled.
