Here are some common precision machined components used in the oil and gas industry:

  • Adapter rings

  • Precision spacers

  • Valve systems

  • Bushings

  • Blowout preventers

What materials does the oil and gas industry require?

These parts are often being used in extreme environments. Saltwater, high pressures, fast movements, high temperatures, and harsh chemicals all impact the parts and components. It’s essential to choose the right material for the job and ensure reliability.

Since each material has specific properties and strengths, it depends where and how the component will be used.

We commonly manufacture parts using:

  • Brass

  • Stainless Steel

  • Inconel

  • Hastelloy

  • Monel

  • Titanium

Additional layers of protection can be added by anodizing or plating parts. Spex offers all of this, eliminating the need for multiple service providers and speeding up the manufacturing process. If you need some help deciding which material is best for your specific part, our team will gladly help.

Because of the harsher environment, more expensive Nickel alloys are commonly used in the oil and gas industry. Even though these are more expensive, they’re also significantly more durable and last longer. Machining these parts is also more expensive, because the cutting tools need to be stronger, and can wear down faster.
