Durable ceramics outlast severe wear, erosion and corrosion.
We are looking forward to meeting with both familiar and new faces at this year's online event July 20-22, 2020 to discuss your specific applications where other materials are not performing well for you.
CoorsTek materials can help make your tools more productive by extending their life and reducing downtime. As the leader in custom ceramic components engineered specifically for Oil & Gas applications, we partner with OEMs and oilfield service companies worldwide to deliver durable ceramic parts for drilling, evaluation, completion, and production equipment.
Come see us virtually and we'll show you how we can help reduce NPT, improve your production output, and extend your equipment life.
What You'll See:
Technical Ceramic Inserts
Spears and Associates estimated that over 700,000 frac plugs were deployed in 2018. Each plug must hold high pressures during fracking and then be easily removed. Early generation plugs used inserts made from tool steel, tungsten carbide, or hardened cast iron. However, most companies now use technical ceramic because of its low density, which helps with clean out, and it is easier to mill out. CoorsTek inserts are successfully used every day on frac plug slips. Using CoorsTek technical ceramic inserts for frac plug slips will lower total cost of operations and reduce non-productive time.
Technical Ceramic Bearings and Bushings
Electric submersible pumps (ESPs) used in oil wells initially had hardened alloy bearings which wore quickly with high break rates, resulting in lost production, expensive repairs, and non-productive time. In today’s shale oil wells, gas slugging and high solids rates create challenging conditions for bearing and bushing systems. CoorsTek provides technical ceramic ESP bearings made to our customer’s design from materials based on the downhole conditions. Using CoorsTek’s technical ceramic bearings and bushings in your ESP will extend equipment life, lower total cost of operations, and reduce non-productive time.
