Wallwork Group are at Offshore Europe 2017 on Stand 3C147. Many manufacturers in the oil, gas and energy industries rely on the company’s services to ensure that their engineered components meet the stringent quality standards needed in such harsh environments.
The company is Schlumberger approved and operates to ISO9100 and ISO9001. As a major supplier of heat treatment services to the aerospace industry, they also enjoy main tier manufacturer approvals. Wallwork use their own fleet of vehicles from three locations and provide a nationwide 24/7 operation to ensure fast order turn-around.
From simple fasteners, nuts, bolts, through gears, pistons, valves to cylinder pumps and well-head components, Wallwork optimise metal hardness to the customer’s requirements using a range of heat treatment methods.
Hardening and tempering imparts optimum hardness, strength and toughness. Sometimes this can help component designers save weight and material by avoiding unnecessary over-engineering. Another advantage is a potential to eliminate additional final finishing processes – saving both time and money.
Plasma and gas nitriding has many benefits for the oil and gas industry manufacturers. Particularly, increasing wear and anti-galling properties significantly improves finished part performance.
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. Also, surfaces begin to exhibit a self-lubricating behaviour.
Besides these and many more metal heat treatments, Wallwork is 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. Find out more at www.wallworkht.co.uk.
