A comprehensive range of metal heat treatments, hard coatings and vacuum brazing services, tailored to the needs of offshore, oil and gas engineers, will be showcased on the Wallwork Heat Treatment stand 1S63. Treatments available improve fatigue strength, wear and corrosion resistance of critical components.
The company’s Newcastle site was established in 2017 through the acquisition of Metaltech. “Following the establishment of Wallwork Newcastle a £750,000 investment has been made in an all new Tufftride and Tufftride QPQ process line, housed in a new extension, to service the needs of the oil, gas and energy industry in the North East and Scotland. Due to be up and running in September/October, the process imparts to steel components wear, fatigue and corrosion resistance while exhibiting self-lubricating and anti-seize properties,” explained group sales manager, Howard Maher.
Bearings, fasteners, nuts, bolts, gears, pistons, valves, cylinder pumps and well-head components all benefit greatly from the range of heat treatments on offer. Hardening and tempering imparts optimum hardness, strength and toughness. This can help component designers save weight and material by avoiding unnecessary over-engineering. Additionally, it can eliminate finishing processes – saving time and money.
Plasma and gas nitriding significantly increases wear and anti-galling properties to improve finished part performance.
Advanced PVD and carbon based hard coatings can take part performance to an even higher level. The company has also developed REACH compliant special coatings to replace hazardous Hard Chrome Plating.
Vacuum brazing ensures complex part assemblies, made from similar or dissimilar materials have exceptionally strong joins to withstand harsh use.
Wallwork have ISO9100 and ISO9001 accreditations and is Schlumberger approved.
