Why Protect Pipe Thread?

pipe thread protectors

Pipe thread protection is a critical component to oil & gas drilling, water well industries, and mining. A thread protector is designed to mask and protect screw threads. They protect these screw threads against damage from corrosion, contaminants, and anything else that might damage them.  Thread protectors can be used on stainless steel tubing, drill pipes, gas cylinders, oil field equipment, and much more.

Screw threads are generally pretty sensitive to damage and must be protected when stored or transported. Some threaded components must be kept protected from dust and moisture so a thread protector is the best way to do that.
