Oil & Gas

Over the last few years we have become more directly involved with Queensland’s oil and gas industry. A Queensland based business has implemented zinc plating of their threaded connectors prior to welding onto their various diameter casings or pups. The thickness of zinc is adequate enough to provide corrosion protection of the threads during storage and still thin enough to avoid galling the thread as the pipe lengths are joined together. Not only has this lead to a reduction in the  installation time for pipeline projects but the product now looks much more appealing than rusting steel!
