Prevent surface corrosion and fatigue using our surface engineering solutions for the oil and gas sector
For decades, shot peening has provided the oil and gas industry with significant improvements in the lifespan and durability of a range of essential equipment. Nearly all fatigue and stress corrosion failures stem from the surface of a component, with cracks forming, and, if untreated, result in a part failure or a safety breach. The process of shot peening generates overlapping dimples which create a standard layer of compressive stress on the surface which you shot peen.
Shot peening improves a components lifespan, meaning you less future costs for part failures
Shot peening offers a comprehensive but practical and cost-effective solution to the oil and gas industry’s, often short-term requirements. With so much of its capital expenditure operating under such extreme conditions, and where functional downtime will cost the firm a disproportionate fee, or even fine, then shot peening has proven itself to be an answer to the issues, with the short-term timescales available to most industry operator
