Alloys well suited for many land, offshore oil and gas uses

Pfinodal alloys combine strength and formability with nonsparking and anti-galling characteristics to  accommodate a wide range of land-based and offshore applications. They are especially suitable replacements for beryllium copper components, offering enhanced mechanical properties.

Pfinodals comprise copper, 15% nickel, and 8% tin. They are made using a proprietary powder metallurgy technology. The patented process produces a homogeneous single-phase structure for “excellent uniformity, formability, and strength to ensure optimum reproducible properties,” it’s noted.

This company’s patented Pneumatic Isostatic Forging process uses high-pressure gas to close porosity while improving the material’s microstructure. This results in a dense material reported far superior to that achieved using conventional casting methods. Complete Pfinodal information is available free.
