Energy exploration, production, and storage applications push materials to their limits. Complex chemical mixtures are processed at elevated temperatures to power the world, but corrosion and fouling result, requiring expensive maintenance and replacement. Precise real-time process monitoring is crucial to ensure product quality, avoid process upsets, and in some cases, comply with environmental laws for emissions control. A single hour of downtime can cost millions.
SilcoTek’s proprietary anti-fouling and corrosion resistant coatings increase yields by improving the compatibility of alloys with fluids they contact. Our coatings are specified by major refineries for process analyzer flow paths to reduce adsorption and maximize measurement sensitivity. One of the world’s largest power plants trusts our anti-fouling coatings in coal gasification filters to significantly improve efficiency and prolong maintenance intervals. Our ultra-thin film coatings can withstand extreme temperatures yet impart no change to the heat transfer properties of alloys, ensuring seamless integration into process systems.
SilcoTek’s coating processes enable high-performance surface properties on alloys in power generation, oil and gas exploration, refining, petrochemical, and renewable energy applications:
Our coatings are trusted by many of the world’s largest companies for game-changing performance in a variety of energy applications:
SilcoTek performs coating processes for energy customers from our ISO 9001:2015 certified facility on a wide variety of metal components, including but not limited to:
While our coating materials offer game-changing advantages, the processes we use to apply them are what make SilcoTek unique. We have perfected chemical vapor deposition (CVD) at scale, enabling economical coating of any part geometry at high volumes. Unlike spray coatings, SilcoTek ultra-thin coatings can be effectively applied to sub-micron pores like filter media and do not impact any engineering considerations like heat transfer or tolerances.
