A-LIRTS Rack System
Loomis developed the A-LIRTS “Advanced Loomis Internal Rack Test System” to enable plain end tubulars to be rack test to full 80% of the tube body internal yield strength prior to being threaded. The system will test 2 3/8” thru 24” OD tubulars to 20,000 psi. The mobile system(s) can be transported and set-up in pipe yards, threading facilities or pipe processors' plants.
The system exerts no end load on the tubulars while internally sealing off on the ID with non-marking packers.
