New Process uses tungsten carbide surface treatment to extend service life of oil well wear parts.

Product Announcement Image 1 Product Announcement Image 2

Mud motor bearings, flow restrictors and other components are now available with an aerospace grade coating on inside diameters, outside diameters and flat surfaces. The proprietary process involves layers of tungsten carbide and other metals specially bonded to a hardened steel substrate. Items will not delaminate because of the metallurgical bond between the layers.

Traditional production parts produced using solid carbide, carbide & steel assemblies, carbide tiles or brazed alloys have all yielded satisfactory results in the fight against erosion. With today's escalation cost for tungsten carbide the prices for these conventionally produced parts have skyrocketed. Extramet's goal is to produce a lower cost alternative that provides acceptable service life.

Most components are supplied in 4-5 weeks. Stocking programs are available. Breakdown service is available in most cases. There are size limitations.
