This presentation will explore several of the variables which affect tungsten carbide powder spraying on oil & gas components such as the gates of valves and on pistons that drive the shear rams on the large BOPs or Blow Out Preventers. The purpose of coating these components is to gain erosion/abrasion resistance as well as to impart some corrosion resistance. Among the issues that will be addressed are the grades of tungsten carbide powders that are used and a brief description of the qualification procedure to ensure the proper application of the process. In addition, a review of some of the problems that can occur with the tungsten carbide sprayed components will be discussed along with some of the consequences of these problems.
