Premiere Torque Rings (PTRô) are an innovative, patented technology that provides premium connection performance at a significantly reduced cost. By creating a positive shouldered makeup identical to a premium connection, API certified pipe can be run, rotated, and reciprocated at a significantly greater torque value without the risk of thread damage.


  • Instances when casing rotation is required and downhole torque is anticipated.
  • Buttress or LTC threaded outer diameter allows the ring to internally lock into the "JĒ space of the collar, like that of a normal connection. The resulting positive shoulder allows the customer to achieve higher torque values and extended thread life during casing running operations.
  • Provides the performance of a premium connection at a significantly reduced cost.
  • Threaded OD results in 100% metal engagement and provides a greater cross sectional area. This produces up to two times the torque yield of competing torque rings that are forced to conform to collar threads.
  • Features a perfectly circular, non-stressed design that results in a considerably stronger product than oblong shaped torque rings.
  • Manufactured to API specifications with P-110 rated steel (or greater) in a variety of sizes to match the customerís casing specifications.
  • Quickly and easily installed on location prior to the job without having to compress the ring into the collar that would cause strength and quality degradation.
  • Easily removed without damaging the pipe giving the customer the freedom to decide when they would like to use the torque rings.
