Lot of the industries utilize
equipment which are required to be under high-pressure and harsh temperature
conditions. This means that the equipment has to undergo a lot of stress and
buckling, which can be harmful to the machinery and even cause the breakdown of
the entire plant. Hence it is very crucial to select carefully the material
used for various pieces of equipment.
SA 387 GR 11 alloy plate is one such component which is often used in elevated temperature and pressure conditions. This alloy is a mixture of chromium, molybdenum and other important materials that impart it the strength to withstand the extreme conditions. While the Molybdenum present in the alloy imparts excellent temperature resistance, the Chromium makes it capable of resisting any type of oxidation or corrosion. This combination is one of the main reasons for high demand of this material being used for sour gas applications. READ MORE
Setting up an oil & gas power plant is a difficult task. It means employing a large number of complex machines and equipment. This ranges from cranes and pipes to drills, tankers, and processing centers. Every piece of equipment, whether used in an onshore or offshore oil rig has to work continuously and often in extreme conditions. Thus it is essential that every piece of equipment be made up of high-grade material. READ MORE
An oil and gas rig, whether
onshore or offshore involves a large network of interconnected pipes and tubes.
These pipes and tubes are present both underwater and on the ground. Hence,
they have to withstand various environmental conditions.
Casing tubing involves the outer tubes which surround the inner main tubes. These tubes generally line the wellbore and are important for preventing the soil and groundwater from getting contaminated by the drilling mud and extracted fluids. Besides, this outer structure forms the core of a support system which is important to keep the wellbore steady even under high loads. READ MORE
As the name suggests, cuni
fittings or Copper-Nickel fittings are made using an alloy of Copper and
Nickel. These fittings are known for their use in underwater and marine
applications. This is because they have strong general resistance to corrosion
that usually occurs due to seawater. Due to the high concentration of Copper
and Nickel, cuni fittings are extensively used in the power plants and the
shipbuilding industry for connecting pipes. READ MORE
Grinding balls are pieces of equipment used in mining and industries for breaking down secondary raw materials such as rocks, cement, and stone. This in turn, facilitates the extraction of ores and minerals from these secondary raw materials. Due to this function, grinding balls have become very much essential in the whole extraction process, as without these the rocks and other secondary materials cannot be broken down. READ MORE
