Warning: Drill string connection operational tension at Maximum MUT is less than 80% inspection class pipe body in tension, a lower MUT should be considered. Failure: Connection ID is too
large. Warning: Elevator Capacity is weaker than nominal pipe in tension. Note: Connection operational tension at Maximum MUT is less than 95% inspection class pipe body in tension, a lower
MUT should be considered. Connection torsional strength is less than 80% pipe body torsional strength.

Note: Slip Crushing: Slip crushing load is calculated with the Spiri-Reinhold equation from Why Does Drill Pipe
Fail in the Slip Area World Oil, 1959 for the slip length and transverse load factor shown and is for reference
only. Slip crushing is dependent on the slip design and condition, coefficient of friction, loading conditions, time in
slips, drill pipe OD and wall variation, and other factors. Consult with the slip manufacturer for additional
information.
