High-Performance Specialty Alloys for Demanding Energy and Power Generation Applications
Developing natural resources such as oil and gas, and generating energy through combustion, nuclear, and renewable methods require advanced alloy materials that possess tremendous levels of performance and reliability.
Carpenter Technology supplies oil and gas producers, nuclear and coal fired power plants, and renewable energy companies with high-quality specialty alloys that are specifically designed to operate in varying conditions and harsh environments that are highly corrosive with pressure changes and temperature fluctuations.
Materials Engineered for Energy Applications
Our diverse materials portfolio of more than 300 grades of specialty alloys, superalloys, stainless steels, titanium, and metal powders make it possible for our customers in the Energy and Power Generation (E&P) industry to help improve integrity, durability and extend component operating life, lowering the total cost of ownership.
These expertly engineered and manufactured alloys offer superior reliability and performance, which make them popular choices for use in steam, gas, and wind turbines as well as a variety of other precision components employed by the E&P industry, renewable and nuclear power generation systems.
Powder Metallurgy and Additive Manufacturing
As the oil and gas industry adopts 3D printing technologies to reduce cost and simplify the supply chain, Carpenter Powder Products is at the cutting edge of powder alloy development by investing in manufacturing capacity of gas atomized, spherical metal powders for additive manufacturing. Now used in some aerospace applications, the oil and gas industry has begun developing prototypes for oilfield equipment.
Solutions for Oil and Gas Drilling, Completions, and Production
Carpenter Technology alloy steels and titanium deliver a unique set of physical, chemical, and mechanical properties required by the world's leading oil and gas drilling companies. These materials can be worked to withstand the downhole effects of corrosion, pressure, stress, and temperature. Carpenter provides a portfolio of high strength and corrosion resistant alloys for the oil-field environments.
Carpenter's non-magnetic alloys steels deliver a unique set of physical, chemical, and mechanical properties required by the world's leading oil and gas drilling companies. Carpenter provides several non-magnetic alloys with improved strength, fatigue, and corrosion resistance to meet the needs of directional drilling.
Amega West Services - Downhole Drilling Tools
Amega West, a subsidiary of Carpenter Technology Corporation, manufactures, rents, and repairs downhole drilling tools using high-quality CarTech® non-magnetic alloy steels for its non-magnetic drill collars, stabilizers, subs, and MWD/LWD collars and housings. All our non-magnetic drilling equipment and downhole tools are engineered to meet or exceed applicable API standards, provide superior resistance to stress corrosion cracking, and exhibit enhanced magnetic permeability.
As developing technologies in renewable energy reach grid parity, the push for and use of alternative sources of power will become more prevalent. Today, many countries are heavily investing in renewables such as wind, solar, and hydropower in support of traditional resources. The use of materials with high corrosion resistance and longevity will be important as operational maintenance costs and lifecycle requirements increase, especially in remote ocean and salt spray environments or where equipment is costly and difficult to maintain.
High temperatures, corrosive conditions, radioactive environments, and operating stresses require specialty alloys that meet the critical performance standards of the nuclear power generation industry. Carpenter's alloys have been successfully used in critical nuclear applications for more than 40 years. Carpenter manufactures a full line of superalloys, high-strength steels, stainless steels, and powder products used in critical nuclear applications.
