sponsored-hardbandingVPD – Selecting ‘Casing Friendly’ Hardbanding Alloys For Minimum Tool Joint And Casing Wear

Sponsored by: Hardbanding Solutions

Advanced drilling technology and political pressures are pushing the envelope of drill string tool joint life, as well as casing life. “Casing friendly” hardbanding alloys are replacing Tungsten Carbide, but at the expense of tool joint life. But what are casing friendly alloys? This virtual panel discussion will explore differences among the numerous alloys on the market; why old hardbanding must be removed before re-application of some alloys but not others; cracking issues; selection criteria and more. These are all legitimate questions and concerns to drilling engineers. The key to successful selection is a general understanding of the alloys on the market, their certification requirements, and their wear relationships between the casing and the tool joint.

For over 40 years, Postle Industries has been designing hardfacing alloys and procedures for many industries, including mining, agriculture, recycling and manufacturing. Postle developed Duraband NC for severe wear conditions encountered in today’s difficult drilling operations. Postle then developed tool joint build-up wires and a non-magnetic hardbanding alloy, Ultraband. As drilling continues to grow and operational demands change, Postle Industries will be there to support, develop and deliver quality hardbanding products.
