We supply EBIC Welded & Threaded Connectors (Equivalent and Similar with NOV XL Viper connections), Sizes form 16″ to 38″. Our welded threaded connector has the features of OD capture, self alignment, quick thread engagement and ani-rotation etc and applied for the applications of conductors for deep water jet strings and drive pipe.
EBIC features a weld-on pin and weld-on box design. EBIC threaded connectors in sizes up to 34-inch diameter feature a near-flush inside diameter (ID) profile and an upset outside diameter (OD) which serves as an integral lift shoulder. EBIC threaded connectors in 36- and 38-inch diameters feature a near-flush OD and reduced bore connector profile.
EBIC threaded connectors have a dual sealing mechanism: an elastomeric oring as the primary seal and a secondary metal-to-metal seawater exclusion seal. EBIC threaded connectors are rated at 100% of pipe body for internal pressure, external pressure, tension, compression and bending capacity in most sizes. Extensive finite element analysis and physical testing have been used to verify performance capacities across the EBIC product line.
Two thread configurations are available: the EBIC-1ST connector makes up in approximately 1-3/4 turns and the EBIC-3ST connector makes up in just over 1/2 turn. Make-up torques range from 50,000 to 70,000 ft-lbs depending on size. EBIC threaded connectors are suitable for makeup with either power tongs or manual tongs.
EBIC threaded connectors are perhaps the most extensively analyzed and tested large diameter connectors on the market today. Reliable and validated connector performance makes EBIC ideally suited to high-profile, extreme service conductor and casing applications. EBIC threaded connectors are manufactured in 16 to 38-inch diameters.
