Oil & Gas

Components in the Oil, Gas and Petrochemical industries often are exposed to wear mechanisms as well as chemical attack and erosion. Failure of components can lead to massive financial loses. We are all aware of the terrible consequences that result from large oil spills and the associated ecological impact. Reliability therefore is a critical factor. This is especially true in continuous production operations. By using thermal sprayed coatings specific beneficial properties can be added to the surface. This result in improved reliability, long life, and reduced down time.

Typical thermal sprayed components in the Oil & Gas / Petrochemical industry:

  • Sleeves
  • Bearings and bearing bushes
  • Extruders
  • Hydraulic plungers
  • Pump shafts
  • Compressor rods
  • Rotors
  • Chemical and corrosive protection
  • Thermal sprayed aluminum (TSA) against corrosion under insulation (CUI)
  • Seals
  • Gate & Ball Valves and seats
  • Lip seal seats
  • O-ring seal seats
  • Mechanical seals
  • Etc..
