Quality The Buzz Word For Oilfield Thread Protectors And The Like
One of the major discoveries that has enhanced growth on our planet is the discovery of petroleum. Since its discovery much research has been done, and as a result, several products are manufactured from this crude.
One of the major discoveries that has enhanced growth on our planet is the discovery of petroleum. Since its discovery much research has been done, and as a result, several products are manufactured from this crude. Petrol and diesel are in great demand in the world today, as they are the critical part of our transport system. Petrol and diesel are the by-products of petroleum. Petroleum is usually found in the oil wells that are situated at great depths under the earth. It has to be brought to the surface of the earth, extracted by drilling, in order for it to be useful.
It is not an easy task. Many processes are involved and it cannot be carried out manually. Special machines have to be used for this purpose. The machines have to be sturdy as a lot of pressure has to be applied during this drilling process. Today, the drilling machines are made either using strong steel or durable high resistant plastic. There are plenty of manufacturers that produce these elaborate machines and their parts.
During the drilling processes, care should be taken that there is no leakage. If leakage occurs, it is then considered a great production loss as it may create other damages as oil is highly inflammable. As the oil is found deep inside the earth, wells have to be dug and long pipes have to be inserted to draw this oil from its depth. Practically, it is not possible to make one long pipe, so pipes of smaller lengths are made and then joined together.
These joints have to be leak proof and also have to withhold enormously high pressure. The different parts of the machines like pipe thread protectors, stabbing guides, pipe chocks and the like have to be of the best quality steel or plastic. Hence the drillers buy these parts from quality conscience manufacturers. There are several makers of such parts across the globe but using some mediocre products which cost a bit less may prove to be costly in the long run.
It is natural for any machine to have its share of wear and tear and the drilling machines are no exception to it. In fact these machines and its parts are put to extreme high pressure, hence the rate of such wearing away of parts are rather high. That is why highly sturdy materials are used to make the parts of these machines so that any corrosion can be minimized.
Another aspect to be remembered is these machines and pipes are located deep underground. Any repair in it and replacing its parts is pretty cumbersome. Frequent wear and tear has to be avoided so the machines work without much hassle for long periods of time.
Considering all these aspects it is clear that each and every product used for oil drilling has to be of excellent quality. From a single bolt and nut to the threading precision, there is no place for any kind of shoddy work in this field.
