Metal Plating for Oil and Gas Industries
Summit’s metal plating expertise aids Oil and Gas companies in their quest to harness our nation’s energy.
Oil and gas mining environments are harsh, and the aggressive, stressful nature of the activity tests the durability of the extracting machinery and equipment used. Because the durability of tools used to gain natural resources is mission critical, Metal plating and finishing is an important characteristic that manufacturers of gas and equipment rely on to ensure optimum function, protect against corrosion, and increase tool lifespan.
Summit Electroplating and Electro-less plating for Gas & Oil.
In general, Summit harnesses the strengths of both Electroplating and Electroless Plating for parts used in the extraction and collection of oil and gas. Using a variety of precious, semi-precious, and common metals like gold, silver, and nickel, these processes deliver 5 important characteristics:
- Resistance to friction wear
- Resistance to oxidation and corrosion
- Increased electrical conductivity
- Increased resistance to heat
- Strengthened part integrity through increased hardness
Typical components we can and have plated for use in the gas and oil industries include:
- Electronic relays and switches
- 27% Nickel Wire
- Hydraulics control components
- Mining measurement apparatus and gauges
- Mining equipment fasteners, connectors and brackets
- Electrical wire used in aerospace systems
