Drill pipe protectors are a vital piece of equipment for oil and gas operators. The significant investment that Oil Country Tubular Goods (OCTG) requires means that producers need the highest quality protective equipment available on the market today. With MSI Pipe Protection Technologies’ Guardian line of drill pipe protectors, operators can rest assured they are getting the superior quality products.
Why Use Guardian Drill Pipe Protection Equipment
Drill string fatigue is the most common cause of failure in oil and gas operations. They are also the most expensive to repair. As the string constantly faces axial torque pressure and bending, it is difficult to accurately estimate the likelihood of a failure in-well. While different inspection and Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) methods exist, it’s important to ensure drill pipes remain protected at all stages of the operation.
Drill Pipe Protection for Light-Duty Applications
As all drill strings operate under different environmental conditions, MSI’s light-duty drill pipe protectors can help extend the usable life of your equipment. Designed for short-term applications, MSI’s Guardian range of lightweight drill pipe protectors are an economical solution for producers.
Features of the Guardian lightweight drill pipe protectors are:

- Support all standard American Petroleum Institute (API) thread profiles and sizes
- Pin and box models for superior protection of both drill pipe ends
