This International Standard specifies the technical delivery conditions, manufacturing process, material requirements, configuration and dimensions, and verification and inspection procedures for aluminium alloy drill pipes with or without attached steel tool joints, for use in drilling and production operations in the petroleum and natural gas industries.
A typical drill pipe configuration is provided, showing main elements and lengths (see Figures 1 to 4). The main dimensions and masses of the grades of drill pipe are given in both SI units and USC units (see Annex A).
This International Standard does not consider performance properties.
NOTE 1 Reference can be made to ISO 10424-2 and ISO 27627 for the detailed requirements for the threading of drill pipe tool joints.
NOTE 2 Reference can be made to ISO 20312 for the performance properties of the drill pipe.
NOTE 3 Reference can be made to ISO 27627 for the “pipe body-tool joint” thread connection gauging.
