Petroleum Industry Castings Applications

Investment casting represents the best of high-precision manufacturing, providing components that exhibit remarkable strength and offer unparalleled corrosion and wear resistance. These traits make it an ideal solution for the oil industry's challenging and demanding applications. 

Investment castings can be tailored to the unique needs of the petroleum industry, such as:

  • Filter screens: Critical for fluid filtration processes, high-quality filter screens are designed to withstand the erosive and corrosive environments commonly found in oil and gas applications.
  • Valve components: Valve components are engineered to offer flawless operation and long-lasting durability, making them indispensable in controlling flow rates and direction in harsh conditions.
  • Downhole drilling components: These components need to withstand extreme pressures and temperatures. High-performance materials and casting methods deliver products that excel in these severe conditions.
  • Pump impellers: Vital for the effective circulation of fluids, pump impellers are crafted to offer optimal hydraulic efficiency while resisting wear, ensuring that your pumping systems operate at peak performance.
