DeltaTek Global

Well construction specialist, DeltaTek Global has developed ArticuLock®, a new tool that is providing oil and gas operators with longer weather windows to deploy subsea hardware and improve operational reliability by removing bending fatigue in subsea running tools and landing strings. A hard-wearing coating was needed for the key component, a complex shaped pivot joint that is subject to extreme loads of up to 400MT, 5000psi of working pressure and 30,000ftlbs of torque while operating in severe weather conditions. Read how we achieved the required hardness, thickness and surface topography from coating and polishing alone, eliminating the need for grinding.
