Coatings for Petrochemical Industries

Aerospace Coatings
Aerospace Coatings

From extraction through refining, surfacing technologies provide proven possibilities to extend equipment performance during high volume production by reducing part wear for a wide variety of applications within the petrochemical industry. Thermal Spray, Cold Spray and Plasma Transferred Arc (PTA) wear protection surfacing are three well established processes providing wear and corrosion resistant surfaces under extreme operating conditions.

When you need sophisticated OEM designed equipment in field operations, surface enhancement coatings offer notable equipment performance improvements. No matter what your needs are, from downhole drilling, high pressure fracking, extraction, tar sands (bituminous extraction), or separation cells, ASB Industries can provide solutions you need. We can also assist with pipeline transports, to refining; critical rotating equipment, pumps, sophisticated valve systems-all dictated by specific regional challenges- persistent concerns for production and maintenance engineers.

ASB Industries provides turnkey thermal spray, cold spray and welding solutions along with machining and grinding—including diamond wheels and polishing equipment, and we offer dimensional and surface finish enhancements meeting and exceeding OEM specifications. From ceramic, highly polished seal surfaces, hard carbide thermal spray on abrasive and sliding wear or high impact components using Plasma Transferred Arc (PTA); ASB will discuss and review current solutions offering possible improvements using our surfacing and finishing capabilities with possibilities of providing alternate and optional solutions.

Gas, Oil, Tar Sands, to off-shore drilling applications

Pumps and valves to name a few critical components are under rigorous demands during challenging field operations during drilling to refining. Identifying types of wear is critical to identifying solutions for wear and corrosion resistant protective surfaces.

Gate Valves and, Slides and Seats

Wear from cavitation, erosion and corrosion can be enhanced with many nickel based alloys along with Tungsten Carbide hard surfacing. Part configuration and finishing requirements influence the possible solutions for these types of components.

Mandrel components

Hardfacing on Mandrel components such as seals, packers and other associated parts may be candidates for wear protective coatings. Existing OEM specifications are considered along with replacement costs comparison to surface enhancement options.

Mud Pump components

Under extreme operating abrasive environments, wear and corrosion protection by the application of carbide applied by the HVOF process along with corrosion seal treatments offer notable wear improvements.

Pump Impellers and Casings

Wear and corrosion resistant coatings applied to the impeller, face plates and to the interior casing offer notable life extension along with shaft bearing and seal surfaces to reduce performance degradation over time.

Pump Plungers and Shaft Seal and Bearing areas

To reduce out of tolerance conditions caused by wear, ceramics, tungsten carbide and other corrosion resistant surfacing is applied to worn areas to bring components to OEM specifications for operational efficiencies. Also, reducing contamination into motors and process environments offer product quality improvements.

Screws, Mixers and Conveyor Components

Conveying equipment hardfaced with engineered coatings keep efficient material flow. Visually identifying wear and component costs including maintenance labor are considered individually for conveying systems component repair.

Pipe erosion, cavitation and corrosion

Material flow damage in pipe components from drilling, extraction, transport and refining are critical issues in the inside of piping. Diameter considerations for thermal spray processes are considered along with focus on extreme wear areas.
