Industry Leaders in Oil Country Tubular Goods – Essentra
Essentra Pipe Protection Technologies is the global industry leader in a wide range of oil country tubular goods, used in the oil and gas industry, mining industry, and the water well industry. They have been ISO 9901 certified in 1997, another ISO 9001 in 2000, and yet another ISO 14001 in 2004, as they have continued to use the same stringent quality standards in every manufacturing process to date. Additionally, Essentra was awarded the OHSAS 18001 Health and Safety Certification in 2007 (which was later re-certified in 2010) and ISO 14001 Environmental Management Systems Certification.
Along with these accomplishments, Essentra has continued to manufacture high-performance API, premium and custom thread protection products which are manufactured from a wide range of materials such as proprietary resin, polymer alloys and thermoplastics of engineer grade that are available in lift able or un-lift able versions for a wide range of applications pertaining to the oil and gas, mining and water well industries.
With locations in Houston, Texas; Nisku, and Alberta, Canada; Veracruz, Mexico; and Aberdeen, Scotland, they are able to offer the widest range of pipe and thread protection products to the demanding markets, while still maintaining their promise of safety and easy installations. This they are able to do as a result of their adherence to the latest regulations as well as their adaptation of the newest technologies made available to them.
During transportation, the protection of the oil country tubular goods pipes is paramount and so specifically designed thread protectors are necessary to provide complete coverage of the pipe threads while protecting them from the damaging effects of the environment. These screw thread protectors can be either open ended or close ended, and are made of either steel, making them washable and re-usable; or plastic that can be either collected and recycled or re-used.
The tector and tector plus, are two examples of the many different available thread protectors that are used during the transportation, handling and storage of the pipes. These two thread protectors specifically, though different versions of the same, offer an economical/cost effective protection for short term storage. The tector plus, because of its slightly heavier weight unlike the tector, is more suited for the Canadian Environment.
Of the many more oil country tubular goods from Essentra, oil drilling equipment such as the bumper rings, pipe chocks, stabbing guides and tubular handling systems are also available and made with the same level of precision. The stabbing guides for example are manufactured to prevent face damage and connection failures as they are made of a high grade steel that is coated with a durable urethane material, and are available in three different varieties such as the mag-latch, the standard duty and the heavy duty. Like the stabbing guides, the bumper rings also prevent face damage during transportation, storage and handling but are manufactured specifically for use on those chrome and high alloy tubular products. Easily installed, the bumper rings prevent the corrosion and overall damage of the chrome or high alloy pipes. Visit http://essentrapipeprotection.com/products/
