As oil and gas drilling dramatically increases in complexity, as more and more wells take on horizontal, high-angle and three dimensional profiles our branded aluminum FuchsRohr® High Performance Pipe (HPP) alloy solutions can provide drilling and operating companies with significant high strength-to-weight advantages. These include extending drilling reach, reducing friction and increasing rate of penetration.
The FuchsRohr® line of products includes:
downhole applications as:

Key features include:
FuchsRohr® AluDrill™ HPP is made by combining a high strength-to-weight precision aluminum tube with conventional steel tool joints via a threaded thermal interference fit. The tube has an ISO compliant modified ACME thread at each end and connects to a steel tool joint with a matching thread on the back side of the tool joint. The tube body is tapered to provide improved strength in high torque areas, buckling resistance in compression and wear resistance at key points along the pipe geometry.
