     Tubular Services is committed to a quality assurance program, and was one of the first end finishers to qualify under the A.P.I. Q-1 program. To ensure that all phases of production are in compliance with Q-1 program requirements, various inspection techniques are performed.

A visual inspection of the upset is made on every joint to check for wrinkles, underfill and punch scores. Each upset end is also hot drifted approximately one foot from ends to check for heavy wall or gripper squeeze. On a periodic basis Quality Control Auditors will verify upset dimensions and perform visual inspection of fin grinding techniques. The temperature of heat treated pipes is monitored by computer sensors and audited during the shift by Quality Control personnel using a hand-held pyrometer.

Each joint of threaded pipe is visually inspected and given at least one dimensional inspection using thread gauges. Lead, taper, thread height, thread length and stand off are checked in a sequential basis. If deviations from A.P.I. standards are found, the previous four joints produced will be checked. Coupling make-up on every joint is verified for torque and dimensional specifications. Full length drift is completed after coupling make-up.

    As the new millennium begins, we are ever grateful to our customers who helped make Tubular Services one of the largest independent end finishers in the United States. TSLLC's management team has made the commitment to achieve the quality services and end finishing that our customers demand and deserve in the years ahead.
