The Custom Protection of Thread Protectors


Thread protectors are small in size, but they do a big job when it comes to custom thread protection. Extremely versatile thread protectors are being used every day in many different industrial applications. Possibly the most common use of thread protection is to provide protection for drill string threads when being handled on the surface, or during shipping and storage.

Some of the most important applications for thread protectors are shown below. Ultimately, oil & gas industry companies understand that investing in thread protectors immensely saves both time and money, compared to having to re-cut threads.

Protecting Pipe Throughout the Drilling Process

Rugged conditions are tough on valuable pipe. Custom thread protection provides essential pipe protection by covering pipe ends and keeping them in the best condition possible regardless of heat, frigid cold, snow, or rain. Whenever pipe is moved or stored, it remains protected.

Protecting the Ends of Steel Castings During Lifting Applications

Protecting the ends of steel castings with thread protectors is standard practice in the oil and gas industry. Typically, protectors are heat treated, and include heavy bails to easily lift and lay down pipe, drill collars, and most of the primary BHA components. Thread protectors are designed for easy and precise application and storage.

Protecting Tool Joint Casings

Tool joint casings must be protected from abrasive wear. When not in use, it is essential that smaller pipe and various connecting parts are not damaged. Thread protectors allow these components to be stored immediately, or disassembled, when it’s necessary to move to a different location on oilfields.

Protecting Multiple Parts on the Oilfield

Things can become very busy on an oilfield rather quickly. Custom thread protection provides needed fortification to the ends of most standard oilfield parts, especially if they are frequently moved and arranged for different applications. Using thread protectors allows parts to be stored under different environmental conditions.

Protecting Parts Used in the Shop

There are many possible applications for the use of durable thread protectors, plastic pipe plugs, and plastic pipe caps in industrial and shop settings. Whenever equipment must remain stored and ready for use, sturdy plastic protectors can do the job.

Plastic thread protectors are standard for industrial use and are widely used throughout the oil and gas industry. Steel thread protectors are also available for specialized applications. Wherever thread protectors are used, they are saving time and money. Contact MSI Pipe Protection Technologies to begin saving today.
