STOCKCAP has introduced a new range of API plastic thread protectors to
its growing product offering for the mining and oil and gas markets.
STOCKCAP’s new API plastic thread protectors for IF (Internal Flush), FH
(Full Hole) and REG (Regular) drill pipes are available from stock individually
or in sets in sizes of 3½, 4½, 5½, 6-5/8 and 7-5/8 with tooling supplied for
many other sizes.
STOCKCAP’s new box and pin thread protectors are manufactured from high
quality and durable 100% virgin HDPE. Using precision engineered moulds, the thread
protectors offer complete thread engagement preventing the protectors from stripping
off during installation, transit and storage.
Similar to all STOCKCAP thread protectors, the box and pin range provides
complete coverage of seal areas to prevent damage to the tool joint faces as
well as avoid dust and moisture intrusion into critical areas.
STOCKCAP box and pin thread protectors are made
tough for harsh environments, and can be used in temperatures ranging from -46°C
up to +66°C.
