Wedge 501™

An API external-upset connection used in workstrings and production tubing.

Special applications include highly deviated and extended reach wells, milling, jarring, fishing, drilling cement and diamond-coring operations.


  • Available in sizes from 2 3/8" to 4 1/2".
  • Exceptional torque strength developed through the simultaneous engagement of opposing flanks of the double hooked dovetail thread.
  • Streamlined clearance OD facilitates running, pulling, and circulating and eliminates coupling face hang-up.
  • Trouble-free make-up is developed with the rugged, coarse pitch thread and steep taper for deep stabbing.
  • 100% pipe body ratings for tension and bending provided by machining pin and box on API EUE upset. Reverse angle stab flank provides 100% compression rating.
  • 100% pipe body internal yield and collapse strength created with the lubricant seal of the dovetail threads.
  • Wedge 501™ is interchangeable with Wedge 531™, Wedge 551™ and Wedge 561™.
