In the oil and gas sector, particularly in the subsea sector,
equipment performance is critical. Reliability and extended lifetime
are key success factors for efficient and cost effective operation.
Faced with the combination of aggressive media, high temperature and
pressure and abrasives it is important that the components which deal with these conditions can provide maximum performance.
Adamant™ coatings with their very low friction and
high wear resistance offer the possibility of eliminating "stiction"
thus making actuation in valves more reliable and reducing the force
required and thus the actuation footprint.
With extreme resistance to abrasion the material will protect critical surfaces from the effects of the aggressive environments experienced by modern downhole equipment.
The properties of the material; extreme hardness, good adhesion and low friction make it an excellent choice for applications including valve and seal seats, push pins, wearing and
bearing seats in pumps and virtually any component where relative
surface movement occurs.
A major application of our coatings in the oil and gas sector is their application to mechanical seal faces where they can prolong the lifetime in dry running and marginal lubrication conditions. For more information click here >>
