The development of thread protectors is a crucial step in the oil and gas industry. By creating a complete set of thread protectors with a focus on conceptual design, detailed design, Material Selection, DFM, design validation, and mold and tool designs and manufacturing, the industry is able to increase efficiency and reduce costs.
The concept of thread protectors was initially created as a way to prevent damage caused by thread wear. It consists of several components, including a steel sleeve, and special plastics. The design of the thread protector must be such that it prevents wear and tear, as well as provides a secure fit and protection from damage caused by the elements.
