The design

Innovative design

The BEWI Universal Protector is designed to meet API 5CT where applicable.


Thread pattern independent

One protector will swallow any thread pattern in the various size columns of tubulars. This reduces logistics challenges significantly.

BEWI Universal Protector is designed with a hard-plastic casing that protects the pipe from external forces. It is also equipped with ergonomic handles. The inside of the protector has soft plastic that provides a good grip around the pipe-threads and absorbs possible chocks. In addition, it offers waterproofing and protection from unwanted substances possibly leaking in.

The pipe protectors are easy and quick to install, and unlike conventional models requires no tools at all for mounting and removal. The time for mounting has been reduced from typically 20 seconds to 4 seconds. Therefore, the operation is now more ergonomic and user-friendly for the operators.


Reuseable and recycleable

The protectors are made of HDPE and TPV plastics, and will under normal use be recycled 5-10 times

The sturdier and plastic-only design enables the pipe protectors to be introduced into a circular material stream. The properties of the protector itself, and the rental system built around it, enables reuse and recycling of the protectors, which are otherwise often discarded after single use. As a result, this contributes to potentially saving 100 thousands of tons plastic from being discarded every year.
