URTeC 2020

Durable ceramics outlast severe wear, erosion and corrosion. 

We are looking forward to seeing familiar faces from last year's event and meeting many new people in July in the beautiful city of Austin, Texas. We'll have our technical ceramic experts available in Booth #1335 this year to discuss your specific applications where other materials are not performing well for you.

Unconventional Reources Technology (URTeC) logo.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 at our booth and we'll show you how we can help reduce NPT, improve your production output, and extend your equipment life.

What You'll See in Our Booth:

Machining Services for Dissolvable Components

Magnesium fracking ball

Magnesium alloy dissolvable balls were introduced in fracking in 2013, and CoorsTek was among the first to produce these balls. Next came dissolvable frac plugs for which CoorsTek supplied components. CoorsTek understands the unique challenges associated with machining magnesium alloys and therefore dedicates equipment, processes, and quality steps for magnesium alloy components. We provide machining services for magnesium components to lower total cost of operations. CoorsTek produces components to the customer’s design and uses customer-supplied material or provides turn-key components. We also employ wire EDM machines to optimize material usage and kit part sets to add value. 

Technical Ceramic Inserts
Technical ceramic inserts for holding high-pressure during fracking.

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
Bearings and bushing made with technical ceramics for applications with extreme conditions.

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.
