Petrochemical Thermal Spray Equipment
The petrochemical industry relies on intricate, expensive equipment to produce its products. This equipment is exposed to extremely harsh environments which inflict severe corrosion and abrasive wear on critical components. Thermal spray coatings are an effective tool in defeating the detrimental effects of these harsh environments.
Ceramic, tungsten carbide and chromium carbide powders are especially effective in combating corrosive and erosive wear mechanisms. They offer superior hardness and protection for increased production performance and efficiency which results in huge savings to the end user.
Thermal spray is a fast and effective repair process which offers quick turnaround and short repair cycles. Both OEM’s and end users have learned how to take advantage of the cost savings offered by thermal spray technology.
