The RAP packaging system was introduced by Drilltec in 1982 as a new concept for the handling,
transportation and storage of pipe. over the years, the design has been updated to take
advantage of the newest technology. Today the RAP packaging system is the reference in the industry.
The RAP packaging system is the strongest and most affordable reusable pipe packaging system available on the market. The RAP packaging system is constructed with high density polyethylene segments reinforced with galvanized rectangular steel tubing. Each joint of pipe is placed in its own matching diameter recess. This feature reduces the risk of corrosion and impact damage.
After assembly, the package is secured by bolts linking both ends of the solid bars which extend through the bottom and top segments of each frame. The package is secured by applying a make-up torque of 70 ft-lb (95 Nm> to the bolts using a properly calibrated torque wrench, not by estimation. The package is lifted by either forklift or slings. The unique design of the RAP packaging system allows the packages to interlock for optimum safety when stacked. The RAP packaging system is available for tubular sizes ranging from 2 3/8" through 9 5/8".
Spacer rings/pipe protection rings/bumper rings provides improved protection during handling to avoid contact between pipes especially for high alloy tubulars. Spacer rings are produced from impact resistant PE in a wide temperature range. We can produce any custom diameter from 2" up to 16".
