Solving the Erosion and Corrosion Dilemma with Technical Ceramics
Golden, Colorado, USA May 2, 2019 – CoorsTek, the world’s leading technical ceramic technology innovator, is highlighting advanced ceramic solutions for the oil and gas industry at next weeks’ Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) at NRG Park in Houston, Texas.
In both offshore and onshore oilfield conditions, severe wear, erosion, and corrosion destroy traditional materials. Replacing metal and hardened alloy components with durable CoorsTek technical ceramics can deliver up to 100 times less wear – meaning longer equipment life and less downtime.
At OTC, CoorsTek will be highlighting examples of technical ceramic technology improving the effectiveness and longevity of oil and gas equipment used in evaluation, drilling, completion, and production.
“Consider the difference ceramics make in a component as simple as a ball bearing used in rotary equipment or for check valve balls,” explains Patrick Stone, Ceramic Application Advisor for Upstream – Oil and Gas at CoorsTek. “Cerbec® ceramic bearing elements are virtually corrosion-free, 120% harder, 68% stiffer, and 75% smoother than steel – so equipment performs better and lasts longer in these severe environments. When parts that see extreme wear are replaced with an advanced ceramic, our customers have extended useful life 1-2 orders of magnitude.”
