National Driller | Exploring Load Capacity, Wear Life of Drill Rod Joints

The high rotation speeds of diamond drilling add dynamic loads to the joints of thin-wall drill rods, which are already highly stressed supporting drilling loads. Drill rod joints need to maintain their strength by resisting wear against the hole, and the wear of make-ups and break-outs due to bit changes.
