Oil & Gas Thermal Spray Equipment

Tungsten Carbide & Other Thermal Spray Powders

A thermal spray is a vital tool used in the oil and gas industry.  Whether it is drilling, refinery, or production, on or offshore, or subsea, thermal spray serves as an invaluable tool for oil production. Decades of research and development have been invested in thermal spray processes to successfully hard face and protect against abrasion, corrosion, chemical attack, and wear under extreme pressures. Thermal spray enhanced components provide significant cost savings in performance and durability with increased uptime and maximum oil recovery.

Praxair's tungsten carbide spray powders are commonly used by our oil & gas customers and help to reduce repair/replacement costs, increase the use of advanced materials, and extend the product life of your parts.
