Description

Oil-well sucker rods are subject to long-term fatigue stress. The stress often leads to failure due to cracks initiated from the rod surfaces, thereby causing severe problems in oil production. In China, the demand for surface crack inspection has lead to a search for techniques for inspecting these rods to the improve the reliability of oil-well operation, as well as for recycling thousands of used and discarded sucker rods that are stored in the oil fields.
