Oilfield Equipment Protection
Oilfield drilling equipment requires the use of heavy drill pipes that are expensive and are susceptible to damage. Thread protection is vital for the optimal and successful operation of drilling systems.
Pipe Protection Products
MSI Pipe Protection Technologies tests the products it manufactures in its own high-quality testing lab. OCTG Thread protectors and other products are tested for a variety of environmental and operational occurrences including vibration, impact, temperature variations, and corrosion.
Comprehensive Line of Thread Protectors
We produce a number of different types of thread protectors including:
Plastic Thread Protectors
Our line of plastic thread protectors is quite extensive and covers any type of field application or occurrence, including extreme weather and rough handling conditions.
Composite Thread Protectors
These types of protectors are specially designed for dual protection against heavy impact forces and corrosion.
All-metal thread protectors offer extra heavy steel construction and are excellent when the highest form of impact protection is required. They also defend well against corrosive elements. They form a complete thread seal and are recommended to be used for exact fitting CNC thread cut applications. They are available in both premium and API pipe applications.
Pipe Handling Frames
When your tubular goods need transporting, it's important to have a safe and effective system to complete the job. Our Rhino tubular handling systems provide a simple, safe, and cost effective way to successfully perform the lifting and offshore transportation of your drill pipes.
