Pipe Protection Products: Cost-Effective & Essential


Modern pipe protection products serve a dual purpose: they protect the company’s assets, while also protecting employees and others. Any successful organization must remain conscious of both concerns. Consistent use of pipe protection products is essential when confronted with rising costs and sagging profits.

A Mixture of Plastic and Resin Provides Essential Protection Benefits

Pipe protectors manufactured from a mixture of high-density plastic and urea-formaldehyde resin is a good protection option for oil country tubular goods. The benefits of this plastic/resin mixture include:

  • Tensile strength & durability
  • Volume resistance
  • Low water absorption
  • Long working life
  • Reusability
  • Non-corrosive features

Thread Protectors

There are thread protections for different oil field applications. They are divided into three general categories. All three types are essential for efficient operation and transport.

  • Tubing protectors. Pin thread protectors protect the male end of the pipe during transport and storage. Box protectors protect the female ends. Both types are needed to protect pipes from damage. They are available with both open and closed ends.
  • Casing protectors. These are used to protect both the box and pin ends of plastic casings. Buttress thread and coupled (BTC) protectors are particularly versatile since they are used for both tubing and casing.
  • Tool joint protectors. Tool joint protectors are available for either light- or heavy-duty applications. Depending upon the desired use, tool joint protectors are available in plastic or pressed steel.

Bumper Rings

Bumper rings are critical for preventing pipe damage by keeping the pipes separated. They are very easy to install. The regular use of bumper rings really pays off by preventing unwanted corrosion, nicks, and cracks to pipes during transport or storage.

Pipe Chocks

Pipe chocks are essential for preventing pipes from shifting. They are quickly fitted to the pyramidal pipe formation at intervals to stabilize the load. Chocking pipes is a recognized necessity for pipe safety and protection.

Lifting Bails

Lifting caps or lifting bails are used in the oil and gas industries to lift drilling tools, pipes, drill collars and bits, subs, and stabilizers. They protect threads while the item is moving, and also while in storage. Protecting threads helps to prevent the necessity of replacing expensive equipment because of thread damage.
