Placing corrosion test rings in the drill string is one of the more common techniques used to evaluate the corrosiveness of drilling fluids on the drill string and other steel equipment. Removal and examination of these rings, after they have been downhole for some time, can be highly informative as to the corrosiveness of the drilling fluid and the type of corrosion encountered.
- Corrosion Test Cell: For testing fluids at temperatures up to 500°F (260°C) and pressures to 2,500 psig (17,237 kPa)
- Drill Pipe Corrosion Coupons: Made of Cold Drawn seamless mechanical tubing Type 4130 machine-finish steel
- Hydrogen Sulfide Detection Kit (Copper Method): Provides a rapid and inexpensive (qualitative) procedure for detecting the presence of hydrogen sulfide
- Iron Sulfide Detection Kit: The Iron Sulfide Detection Kit is designed to test steel armor wire for the presence of iron sulfide.
