PROJECT: OIL DRILLING COMPONENT - REYNOLDS 953
Oil down-hole drilling can involve applications in difficult environments with pressure and temperature constraints.
Ability to withstand high external pressure on the unit
Resistance to abrasive fluids
Consistent performance over a long period, reducing the need for replacement when in a down-hole
Magnetic material as part of an electrical unit
Tube to be made to very close tolerances, suitable for use with matching components on assembly/fabrication
Thin wall tubing for optimum heat transfer
Project solution and benefits
Use of 953 tubing due to high yield strength
Use of stainless maraging steel with similar corrosion resistance similar to type 400 alloys and acceptable magnetic behaviour as supplied
High fatigue life rating allowing long product life in design conditions
Ability to use 0.5mm wall thickness for improved heat-transfer, whilst holding the critical bore measurement.
