Offshore_corrosion_imageOffshore Corrosion Control For Oil & Gas

Offshore platforms, and upstream facilities are exposed to significant corrosion challenges.  Seawater spray, produced water, H2S exposure, and acids associated with oil and gas exploration all result in shorter equipment lifespan, frequent failures, and high maintenance costs. 

SilcoTek® coatings improve corrosion resistance in a wide variety of applications by up to 10x or more, while improving durability of stainless steel and other alloys.  Dursan improves sulfuric acid corrosion resistance, hydrochloric acid corrosion resistance and salt spray corrosion resistance by orders of magnitude compared to uncoated stainless steel.

Effective and durable coatings for oil and gas applications, without the specialty alloy cost!

We developed our coatings to protect equipment exposed to hydrochloric acid, nitric acid, sulfuric acid, or marine environments. Silcolloy and Dursan improve corrosion resistance of 300-grade stainless steels by an order of magnitude and reduce cost by eliminating the need for expensive alloys like Inconel, Monel and Hastelloy®

Mercury can damage natural gas pump stations and pose a severe health and safety hazard.  Low level mercury detection is vital to sustainable pipeline operation but can be challenging to accurately sample and test.  SilcoNert dramatically improves mercury sample recovery compared to uncoated stainless steel.

SilcoNert® coating is recognized industry-wide as the leading inert surface that enables upstream operations to sample their processes and environment reliably with high accuracy and reproducibility. If left uncoated, even low surface area parts will adsorb compounds of interest and lead to invalid results, causing expensive retesting.

Uncoated surfaces within the GC flow path adsorb benzene, toluene, xylenes and other target analytes, leading to severe peak distortion and missing peaks.

SilcoNert-coated GC flow paths produce sharp peaks with high resolution, giving refineries superior analytical accuracy and full compliance with EPA regulations.

Benzene, organosulfur compounds, and other hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) are known to be highly reactive with bare, untreated stainless steel. SilcoNert® provides a uniform barrier between substrate and sample while preventing analytes of interest from adsorbing onto the surface, ensuring they reach the analyzer and can be accurately assessed.
