Oil & Gas Castings
The oil and gas industry does far more than produce the fuel in our gas tanks. Operations include all aspects of the exploration, extraction, refining, transportation, and marketing of petroleum products. And, as petroleum is a key raw material for a wide range of chemical products—from plastics to pharmaceuticals—the oil and gas industry influences billions of people around the globe every day.
Avalon Precision Metalsmiths has the skills and experience to deliver precision parts for oil and gas applications. These parts encounter harsh working conditions on a daily basis, and so must be durable enough to perform in high temperatures and high cycle use. By using the lost wax technique for our cast parts, we can create net shape or near-net shape parts that deliver exceptional performance and wear resistance.
Parts we manufacture for this industry include:
- Ball valve components
- Needle valve components
- Metering bodies
- Down-hole drilling components
- and more
We offer low and high-volume production, as well as metal rapid prototyping. We work with a wide range of materials, including stainless steel, tool steel, and exotic materials such as Inconel, Hastelloy, and Cobalt.
We provide a range of non-destructive testing to ensure proper quality and performance, including x-ray, magnetic particle, and dye penetrant inspections. We can pressure test parts up to 30,000 PSI, as needed.
