Pipe protection is an issue that lingers in the mind of anyone who has a pipe connection- whether at home, at work, or in public places. Pipes that facilitate the flow of water, oil, or gas from one point to another, can break down due to factors such as corrosion damage. If this happens, the pipes can no longer distribute gas, oil, or water to end users as expected. Those especially concerned may often wonder how to best protect pipes. Well, simply put, it all starts with durable, sturdy, and reliable pipe protectors.
There are many different kinds of pipe protectors; such as, plastic or metal cap or screw thread protectors, steel pipe protectors, and inhibitors. Each unique protection design is used in accordance with pipe functionality, as well as its size, shape, and material make-up. Ultimately, you’ll want to protect pipes from corrosion, as well as protect the areas in which the pipes are used from damage. Therefore, the use of pipe protectors is essential to maintaining pipes and their function.
Thread Protectors & Pipe Freeze Systems
These pipe protector systems are vital and essential to maintaining the pipe’s durability and damage prevention. Ultimately saving you thousands of dollars in replacement costs and repairs. For example, thread protectors extend the life of your pipes, and protect them during transportation, storage, and usage under any condition. While investing in a pipe freeze protection system- such as, a heat trace cable, simply maintains a pipe’s durability as fluids pass through at temperatures above freezing point. This prevents the water from expanding as it freezes and increases pressure inside the pipe, causing it to burst.

Another way to save pipes is to have protectors available during pipe transport and basic handling. The capability of effectively moving pipes from one place to another can only be accomplished with the appropriate protectors; and having specialized loading/transportation methods in place to prevent damage, accidents, and spills during transit, loading, and unloading is extremely essential.
