Oil Tools

The oil tool industry has continually faced failures in threaded connections, sliding controls and expandable devices used in petroleum wells. This is due to galling and seizing especially upon make-up (tightening) or break-out (loosening) of the threaded connection. Tight tolerance fittings, friction and long-term wear related failures also occur in internal flow control parts and reciprocating components of flow controls. Flexbrite coatings help to eliminate these failures.

Today, Flexbrite's experienced staff have proven vacuum coating solutions that prevent galling of threaded connections and reduce friction in reciprocating parts thus eliminating premature failures. By simply applying a compatible coating to one or both of the mating surfaces the connection will maintain its critical fit (i.e., dimensional tolerances) while maximizing protection against galling, abrasion and corrosion.
