Home Products High Performance Alloys ToughMet Oil and Gas Equipment Components HIGH PERFORMANCE TOUGHMET® OIL & GAS APPLICATIONS The oil and gas industry demands tough materials that stands up to the most rugged and complex environments in the world. Delays or accidents stemming from equipment wear, malfunction or failure can have severe implications, economically and environmentally. Reliability of critical equipment is an absolute necessity and requires the right material. BENEFITS IN OIL & GAS Whether the application calls for ToughMet 3 AT (UNS C72900), ToughMet 3 TS (UNS C72900), or ToughMet 3 CX (UNS C96900), our ToughMet copper-nickel-tin alloys are spinodally hardened to provide attributes beyond those typically found in high-strength copper alloys. Tensile and fatigue strength even at elevated temperatures Corrosion, erosion and wear resistance in most oilfield environments Control fluid compatibility Magnetic transparency Anti-friction and anti-galling characteristics Excellent machinability WATCH A VIDEO THAT HIGHLIGHTS WHY HESS ENGINEERS USE TOUGHMET COUPLINGS FOR DEVIATED WELLS. ToughMet 3 Sucker Rod Couplings were engineered to eliminate production interruptions caused by sucker rod coupling and production tubing failures in deviated shale wells. Learn more about the cost-effective ToughMet 3 Suck Rod Couplings. ENGINEERED SPECIFICALLY FOR RELIABILITY IN OIL & GAS To complement our other high-strength ToughMet tempers, we have engineered two new forms of ToughMet 3 specifically for oil and gas exploration, drilling, completion and production. ToughMet 3 TS95 and TS120U are wrought, spinodally hardened copper-nickel-tin alloys that provide high-impact strength and crack-propagation resistance. These new materials outperform other high-strength alloys, extending the reach and accuracy of oil and gas drilling tools and increasing the reliability of well control, completion and production. BETTER CORROSION RESISTANCE THAN OTHER COPPER ALLOYS ToughMet 3 resists saltwater corrosion, hydrogen embrittlement and chloride stress corrosion cracking better than other copper alloys. It shows low general weight loss in extreme chloride and high pH drilling fluids and resists moderate hydrogen sulfide environments at low pH. FORMS AVAILABLE ToughMet 3 is available in plate, rod, tube, bar, hollow bar, wire, strip and a variety of continuous or investment cast shapes. Mechanical properties may vary by product size, form and temper. Please see data sheets for specific values. We can also supply rough or finish machined parts to meet customer supplied drawings.
