SURFACE Technology will showcase some of its oilfield equipment preservation expertise at the Australasian Oil & Gas Exhibition and Conference (AOG) 2016.

With its Australian base in Jandakot, Surface Technology specialises in providing engineered coatings designed to refurbish and repair critical components and equipment.

It is also sometimes appointed to work on original equipment manufacturer components in order to help reduce the wear caused by abrasion and corrosion – in turn helping to reduce downtime in highly asset intensive industries such as oil and gas.

In an announcement, Surface Technology said it offered a unique alternative in environments where abrasive blasting was not suitable.

“Oilfield equipment preservation offers an array of benefits including on site application, minimal component disassembly, eliminated contamination and reduced downtime costs,” it said.

The company will exhibit alongside its sister company SIFCO ASC, which will use computer generated imagery (CGI) video to demonstrate its SIFCO electroplating process – performed without the use of an immersion tank.

Surface Technology Australia general manager Mark Huxley said exhibiting at AOG was an integral part of its calendar.

“This year, attendees will get the chance to see the SIFCO Process demonstrated, as well as speak to our technical experts who can offer advice on industry issues and guidance on selecting the right surface treatment to optimise the performance and life expectancy of critical components,” he said.

Surface Technology will be exhibiting at stand A19 at AOG.
