The Thread Inspection Process
What We Look For.
There are a myriad of causes and types of thread damage that can jeopardize the integrity of a threaded connection.
Some slight defects in non-crucial areas may be field repairable, but most damage will be grounds for rejection. Each manufacturer’s technical specs for a connection has it’s own tolerances and acceptance/rejection criteria that are adhered to by Cole Enterprises inspectors. Below is a sample of the most common types of damage.
