Oil and gas equipment for Bottom Hole Assemblies (BHA) are exposed to extreme demands. Oerlikon Metco’s solutions shorten asset downtime, extend time between maintenance cycles, improve performance and extend the usable life of BHA tools.
Diamonds to Carbides for Superior Performance
As extended reach laterals probe deeper to access viable production zones, BHA components such as stabilizers, rotary steerable systems (RSS), positive displacement motors (PDMs) and the like must withstand ever-increasing temperatures, pressures and side force loading. This, as well as prolonged exposure to vibration, reduces the lifespan of the tools unless an effective coating solution is utilized.
Solutions That Minimize Non-productive Time
Oerlikon Metco’s hardfacing materials and coating solutions are designed to meet the rigors of the downhole environment and the requirement from customers for increased performance. We offer solutions that range from best-in-class to mid and low tier options to match the ever-present price-performance pressure our industry has learned to navigate. Whatever your need, our materials for PTA (Plasma Transferred Arc) welding, HVOF (High Velocity Oxy Fuel) spray, laser cladding, spray-fuse, and tungsten carbide help you multiply component lifetime. Thus, they increase your ROI while you focus on reliable uptime and minimize downtime.
