SPECIALLY FORMULATED FOR SOME OF THE TOUGHEST CONDITIONS ON EARTH
New HONEY KOTE™ from BESTOLIFE is the superior choice when maximum protection against seizing, galling, and load-bearing stress is critical. This innovative premium compound has been specially formulated to resist washout and corrosion while providing ultimate efficiency in higher temperature environments. Also provides long-term storage protection for threaded surfaces in a variety of conditions.
WHY HONEY KOTE™?
TOUGH. TESTED. SWEET!
Bearing stress is the contact pressure between the pin and box at the make-up shoulder. As the tool joint is tightened, the bearing stress at the make-shoulder increases. The maximum bearing stress is the function of the maximum torque and the total area of make-up shoulder. BESTOLIFE HONEY KOTE™ protected the NC50 tool joint from galling caused by high bearing stresses. The 54,500 ft-lbs. created calculated bearing stress on the make-up shoulder to 143,500 psi.
The pressure test objective is to show the ability of BESTOLIFE HONEY KOTE™ to seal very high pressure at the makeup shoulder. The test was conducted by increasing pressure incrementally up to 25,000 psi, about 10,000 psi higher than pressure used in fracking operations.
