ELECTROLIZING® FOR OIL & GAS EXTRACTION

Using the Electrolizing® coating for applications in the oil and gas extraction industry has many advantages. Below we will discuss the main reasons you would choose to Electrolize some or all of your critical parts and equipment in order to reduce maintenance costs and increase production rates.

WHY USE ELECTROLIZING® FOR OIL AND GAS EXTRACTION APPLICATIONS?

What are the top reasons you should consider Electrolizing® for your oil and gas extraction equipment? Here are the benefits and advantages of applying a thin dense chrome coating from Electrolizing® in order to reduce downtime due to part wear and failure

KEY BENEFITS

  • Increased abrasion resistance and component life
  • Improved corrosion and erosion resistance
  • Improved lubricity due to a low coefficient of friction leading to improved material flow
  • Results in longer service life for your equipment
  • Anti-galling: Electrolizing® can be used as a sacrificial between similar metals
  • High effective temperature range of -400–1500 °F for extreme hot and cold applications

ADVANTAGES OF ELECTROLIZING® FOR THE OIL AND GAS EXTRACTION INDUSTRY

There are some qualities that set Electrolizing® apart from other coatings on the market today. Here are the top reasons to choose Electrolizing®.

DECREASES DOWNTIME IN CORROSIVE ENVIRONMENTS

In the field of oil and gas drilling and extraction, Electrolizing® is ideally suited for components operating in corrosive downhole environments. The coating’s high corrosion and wear resistance allows longer equipment run times and fewer expensive repairs – resulting in decreased downtime.

Electrolizing® is highly chemical resistant, it will resist most chemicals with the exception of sulfuric and hydrochloric acid.

REAPPLICATION SAVES MONEY

Electrolizing® can be stripped from the substrate material then recoated almost indefinitely, helping to avoid costly component replacement. Worn components that have experienced material loss or deformation can also be coated to extend useful product life.

COMMON APPLICATIONS

Here is a list of the most common Electrolizing® applications in the gas and oil extraction industry.

  • Seals
  • Valves
  • Rods
  • Pistons
  • Pumps
  • Rotating elements
  • Bushings
  • Augers
  • Sleeves
