Oil & Gas
Whitford’s Oil & Gas business uses advanced polymer technologies to produce a broad portfolio of coatings, formulated to perform under extreme and aggressive oilfield conditions. Present in all sectors of the Oil & Gas arena; upstream, midstream and downstream, Whitford engineered coatings have been developed to enhance today’s production operations and increase the service lifecycle of assets. With increasingly demanding environmental standards and harsh environments, the Oil & Gas industry is continuously faced with new challenges.
Through complete product stewardship, Whitford’s energy team supports the Oil & Gas industry with a broad portfolio of functionally engineered coatings that deliver performance in the most demanding oilfield environments:
- Corrosion resistance
- Abrasion and wear resistance
- Long-term dry-film lubrication
- Anti-galling and seizing
- Flow assurance
- Thermal stability
- Chemical resistance
Whether in an offshore or onshore environment, the effects of corrosion, scaling or other aggressive chemical reactions can be mitigated with the proper selection of a Xylan coating. Additionally, Xylan coatings can improve safety and extend the lifecycle of the oilfield assets, a paramount focus in all field operations.
Dynamic and actuated parts are expected to function in standard and emergency operations; Xylan coatings will provide long-term lubrication performance. Low and consistent coefficients of friction deliver expected torque loads and repeatable assembly of oilfield-threaded components. Utilizing Xylan coatings provides long-term anti-galling and dependable low, breakout torque of assembled components, as well as faster disassembly for maintenance operations in both field and service center settings. Abrasive media, fluids or reciprocating functions tend to wear equipment surfaces to failure. Whitford’s sacrificial, abrasion resistant coatings will extend the lifecycle of exposed components.
Whitford’s dedicated Energy technical and sales representatives remain actively involved at all levels of the supply chain; operations, engineering and manufacturing, to further develop existing and introduce new coating systems that address the challenging demands experienced today. With strategically positioned global support and R&D centers, Whitford is here to address your next challenge.
