threadform

1. n. [Drilling]
A particular style or type of threaded connection, especially as used for rotary shouldered connections. Threadforms come in a variety of sizes, pitches, tapers, threads per in., and individual thread profiles. Fortunately, each of these varieties has a published standard, either considered public and maintained by the American Petroleum Institute (API) or maintained by operating or service companies as proprietary information.
