Oil and gas are an essential part of Canadian’s daily lives. It is used for transportation fuels such as gasoline and diesel, heating our homes and cooking our food. Canadians consume 1.5 million barrels of oil per day, making up 2.5% of the world’s consumption.
As the fifth-largest producer of oil and natural gas in the world, the oil and gas industry is a significant part of the Canadian economy. The sector has provided $105 billion to Canada’s gross domestic product and has provided more than 500,000 jobs across the country.
Gaining access to natural resources is as challenging as ever. The oil and gas industry is continuously looking for technologies to help collect these resources. Erosion damage in oil and gas wells is inevitable, these oil reserves consist of either sulphur or CO2, which are highly corrosive, and the same is true for gas. To maintain efficient and reliable operations, oil and gas industries invest heavily in corrosion-resistant solutions. Corrosion resistance materials prevent environmental deterioration from chemicals.
Chrome white iron is comprised of a mix of metallic matrix, which can be either austenite or martensite, and chromium carbides. This combination makes chrome white iron exceptionally wear and corrosion resistant. ClearStream Wear, through its industry partnerships, has developed a combined piping solution to insert chrome white iron liners to maintain strength and performance throughout the product’s life cycle. With our innovation, this product is the perfect solution where typical chromium carbide or tungsten overlays have not performed well.
