Curious as to why line pipe protectors are so essential? It’s because oil and gas fields are just as tough on pipe equipment as they are on workers. Leaking pipelines must be prevented at all costs. During transportation and storage, pipe is vulnerable to damage from mishandling, weather extremes, and other conditions that can be prevented by using various line pipe protectors, like pipe plugs, caps, and thread protectors. These protectors help guard company investments by lengthening the functional life of pipeline, and reducing equipment costs.
Durable Plastic and Resin Pipe Protection Products
A mixture of plastic and resin is used to manufacture many of the pipe protection products used throughout the oil and gas industry. Plastic protectors are normally able to resist high temperatures but should not be stored at temperatures exceeding 550 C. The elasticity and stability of plastic thread protectors provide increased protection for valuable pipe.
Vital Pipe Protection Products
Line pipe protectors come in various sizes and feature options to especially fit standard pipe, as well as in beveled or plain end fittings. Even more, Essentra Pipe Protection Technologies offers custom fitted threads for uniquely designed pipe.
Pipe Caps offer many benefits, including protection of pipe ends and inside tubing from dust, rust, moisture, and other substances; as well as, preventing leaks and bursting pipe.
Thread Protectors protect pipe threads from damage during shipping or storage, and eliminate the expense and time of re-cutting threads. Damaged pipe received at the site can result in significant replacement costs and lost time.
Pipe Plugs close off the ends of pipe during shipping or storage, protecting their interior. There are a number of different types of pipe plugs, including ribbed, threaded, butt weld, socket weld, and sucker rod. Durable and reliable pipe plugs should be used whenever it’s important that pipe is kept in prime condition for use.
