Disposal of thread protectorsNorkram is a recycling and processing facility for thread protectors, transport frames, and bumper rings. We aim to keep these products out of landfill in line with our environmental policy. When used protectors reach us, we separate them by size, connection, and manufacturer and this information is recorded for our records, and our customers’ records.

The protectors will follow one of two routes from here:

  1. If the protectors are irretrievably damaged after initial inspection, we will process them of it by "chipping". The re-grind and pellets will either go straight back into the plastics industry for recycling, or we retain it for manufacturing our own brand Bumper Rings.
  2. If the protectors are deemed re-usable, we will retain these in our stock for our refurbishment process to resupply.

Keeping and re-using the protectors is of great benefit to the environment, and is a budget saver for oil and gas companies, as there are no processing costs applied to retained product. This approach contributes effectively to the circular economy of the North East of Scotland.
