Why Pipe Protection Products
OCTG is the name given to a group of seamless rolled products, including casing, tubing and drill pipes. These kinds of products are used heavily in the global oil and gas industries and markets. The protectors, manufactured by companies like Essentra, help to keep OCTG products healthy and in tip top working order for as long as is reasonably possible. Therefore, pipe protection products are an important part of the OCTG industry. Without these products, the industry would not be able to function efficiently. This would be on account of frequent damage to the pipes and other OCTG products used in the industry’s production line. Frequent damage would halt production and result in subsequent loss of revenue and diminished profits.
How Protection Products Are Made
As stated before, in the OCTG industry, healthy pipelines are essential. Pipelines must remain durable and damage free to prevent leaks and other kinds of damage which can be quite dangerous. As such, so too the products that protect them must be durable and reliable. Therefore, casing thread protectors and other protection products must be made using the strongest possible material. It is for this reason that mixtures (or compounds) contain plastic and resin, and even some metals. Plastic and resin mixtures are particularly popular as they are very strong (making them less susceptible to damage), and can be reused multiple times.
