Corrosion, wear, and erosion resistant coatings are a necessity for the Petrochemical industry.

Corrosion, cavitation, and pipe erosion are caused through transportation of the material during the drilling, refining, transport and extraction processes. The Metal Spray process is used today to combat these issues.

Casings and pump impeller life expectancies can be greatly increased with the application of the correct engineered surface coating. Mixers, screws and conveyor components can be coated to ensure that their efficiency is optimised. Gate valves, slides and seats suffer wear from cavitation, erosion and corrosion but can be enhanced with many nickel based alloys along with Tungsten Carbide hard-surfacing. Part configuration and finishing requirements influence the possible solutions for these types of components.
