Designed to protect the
threaded steel tubing ends and prevent water, dust, corrosive agents,
UV rays and other elements to reach the thread area.
The plastic thread protectors are made of a threaded low density or
high-density polyethylene bumper, which absorbs the impact shocks.
The accurate threads prevent vibrating and premature release of the
protectors from the tube during the transport.
The plastic thread protectors are available either in the open end or
closed end version, liftable or non-liftable. The liftable protectors
allow moving of the tubes using hooking devices and in the same time
keep the tube thread and coating undamaged. The closed end protectors
may have an optional vent hole designed to keep the inner pressure
equal to the outer pressure. The vent hole may also have a filter,
which prevents the intrusion of the foreign particles.
The plastic material used in the design of the protectors insures the
protector integrity within the temperature range given by the API 5CT
standard (-46ºC÷66ºC).Their design allows easy setting and removing
using a tube wrench.
