Joints and Plugs

We offer our complete range of steel grades and TenarisHydril connections, in order to meet the specific needs of each customer’s development.

Tenaris joints and plugs are produced from a machined tube, hollow or bar.

Joints are tubular accessories used for spacing out full-length pipe; allowing a change in size, type of connection or weight; or reducing the effect of the erosion on the string wall.

  • Couplings: Connectors that contain two box ends and serve the purpose of joining two lengths of threaded pipes.
  • Crossovers: Sub-assemblies used in drilling operations where it is necessary to introduce a change in the size of the tube or connection type.
  • Nipples: Short-length accessories used in tubular strings for passing from one connection type to a different one.
  • Blast joints: Short heavy walled tubing whose function is to act as a sacrifice element.
