SIMCO PDQ Pipe Improves Drilling Efficiency

In rotary drilling, efficiency all comes back to moving the cuttings out of the hole efficiently. The more efficiently you can move the cuttings out of the hole, the more drilling progress your team can make in less time, whether for water well, geothermal, or geotechnical drilling. The US made SIMCO PDQ drill pipe outshines the competition through superior engineering, turning your SIMCO drilling system into a productive powerhouse.

Built specifically for SIMCO drilling systems, the SIMCO PDQ drill pipe is a huge advantage not available anywhere else. Over the years, SIMCO engineers have worked hard with their drill pipe manufacturer to develop this rod with the end-user in mind. With a 3-inch outside diameter and 1⅞-inch inside diameter through the tool joint, the SIMCO PDQ drill pipe easily out performs the competition with drill pipe advantages including:

  • Only 1½ turns to make tool joints, making connections 60% faster
  • More efficient bore hole clean out through 50% larger tool joint opening
  • Easier to handle in the field, weighing 30% less than other rods

SIMCO engineers sat down with the goal of reducing fluid constraining in the drill rod while also eliminating pressure drops and flow restriction. By using an alloy steel that allowed a reduction in the mid body wall, they were able to open up the inside diameter through the tool joint and create a lighter rod. Now you can carry more PDQ rod on the drill rig without challenging the GVWR and your crew will have on hand what they need to get the job done safely and more efficiently. Manually handling a 10’ drill rod that only weighs 64 lbs. is an easy task.

When you are looking for a stronger rod for your drilling operation that causes less drop in pump pressure, increases bore hole clean out, and creates a safer environment for your crew, nothing compares to the SIMCO PDQ drill pipe. And don’t forget that SIMCO makes all their own sub adapters for this pipe in house to ensure a secure connection every time. You will build a good reputation as both a dependable drilling company and an employer that cares about its crews by using a safer, faster and more reliable drill rod.
