Description

Design for Life: Solutions to combat wear

Description

Wear is a perennial issue in the oil sands, leading to costly equipment failures and lost production. This has led to the wide adoption of protective surfacing technologies to improve component durability and reliability. This talk will give an overview of the options available for hardfacing, reviewing both the application processes and overlay types. This will include background information on the performance criteria requested in the current generation of qualification specifications. In addition, a review of new technologies, such as the 3D printing of large scale metallic components will also be presented.
