Anti-corrosion and anti-wear were popularly requested by the oil & gas industry. Stainless steel has been widely applied on the pipes, pumps, valves and vessels. The superior anti-corrosion property and cost downturn of titanium and titanium alloy are also driving the replacement of stainless steel by many specific cases. Nitriding process is helping stainless steel part and titanium parts to retain anti-corrosion excellence and get the wear resistance improved.
Treatments range from water and oil hardening of the 4130 and 4140 grades to the gas or plasma nitriding of hangars and other down hole components. Metallurgical Coatings can offer enhanced performance in extreme outdoor conditions such as Marine and underground environments.
