Setting the standard with advanced, next generation corrosion resistant alloys
'Come Together' is the Sandvik theme at OTC 2014 in Houston, Texas, (5 – 8 May) Booth 2701, bringing together partnerships with its customers to provide industry leading corrosion resistant material solutions.
Sandvik is setting new industry standards with its next generation of high performance materials to meet the operational demands brought about by extreme water depths below 10,000 feet (3,000 meters) and temperature above 400˚F (204˚C). These advanced corrosion resistant alloys (CRAs) offer increased reliability and enhanced corrosion resistance in the harshest conditions while reducing environmental impact.
"Introduction of these high performance materials really is a leap in technology similar to that seen following the development and introduction of the first duplex stainless steel," said Nigel Haworth, Manager Sandvik Business Unit Oil & Gas.
"Whether we are talking topside hydraulic and instrumentation tubing, downhole production casing and tubing or highly versatile control and chemical injection lines, our corrosion resistant alloys are purpose designed to offer safe, reliable and cost effective solutions in the most demanding environments on the planet."
Examples on display will include seamless tube products manufactured in high-alloy materials, as well as bar and hollow bar, complex components in powder metallurgically-based hot isostatic pressing (HIP) such as manifolds, swivels and wye-pieces, Sandvik ClikLoc™ rapid action connector for riser applications, wirelines and welding consumables.
