Due to the ever increasing demands of directional drilling, there is an ever increasing level of wear exerted on the steering components of the drill string. Colmonoy® hardsurface coatings meet the demands of protecting and prolonging the useful life of the parts in this extremely severe environment.
Colmonoy® hardsurface coatings done by Laser Cladding, Plasma Transferred Arc Welding, HVOF, Plasma Spray, Spray Fuse, and Powder Welding meet the demands of protecting and prolonging the useful life of the parts in this extremely severe environment.
Colmonoy® 7331-60F and 7333-60F were specially developed to extend the useful life of downhole tools through enhanced wear protection on downhole tools such as welded steel-body drill bits, stabilisers (magnetic and non-magnetic) and steering pads. This is due to the addition of tungsten carbide. Using pre-blended matrix plus tungsten carbide powder can significantly improve wear resistance in the hardfacing of steel and non-magnetic stabilisers, welded steel body drill bits and steering pads used in the oil & gas exploration sector.
