All You Need to Know about Metal Heat Treatment for the Oil, Gas and Energy Industry
If you manufacture for the oil and gas industry, then you will know Offshore Europe 2017 runs from September 5th to 8th. However, do remember to mark in your route plan around the hall, our Stand 3C147. We welcome the opportunity to discuss your metal improvement needs.
Heat treatment and metal improvement is a vital part of the process of manufacturing high quality components for use in the harsh environments found in this demanding industry. At Wallwork we work closely with you to optimise metal hardness to meet your commercial aims. Typical products treated range from simple fasteners, nuts, bolts, through gears, pistons, valves to cylinder pumps and well-head components.
With ISO9100 and ISO9001 accreditations and being Schlumberger approved, you can rest assured that we are dedicated to high quality standards. We also have a long history as a major supplier of heat treatment services to the aerospace industry and enjoy main tier manufacturer approvals. With a fleet of over 40 dedicated vehicles, working from three locations, we provide a nationwide 24/7 operation to ensure fast order turn-around.
Wallwork has a vast range of heat treatment methods available. Hardening and tempering imparts optimum hardness, strength and toughness. Sometimes this can help component designers save weight and material by avoiding unnecessary over-engineering. Plasma and gas nitriding improves wear and anti-galling properties. Tufftride and Quench-Polish-Quench services produce parts that are exceptionally hard wearing and resist fatigue whilst ensuring there is minimal or no dimensional change.
We are also home to advanced PVD and carbon based hard coatings, so can offer a one-stop shop to push part performance to the next level. If you have an immediate need for metal heat treatment or hard coatings, call us now: 0161 797 9111.
