Hardbanding

Fully automated drill pipes hardbanding

Hardbanding is a very established name for the wearfacing welding process used in drilling to minimize wear on casing and drilling tool joints in order to reduce operational costs associated with Oil & Gas production. It involves the application of a wearfacing material on the drill tool joint. The process is done by approved hardbanding applicators for OEM drill pipe producers and drilling companies. Trio OilTec Services have executed hardbanding in the Norwegian market for more than 8 years. Due to excellent co-operation between Trio OilTec Services and StatoilHydro, there has been a very successful development and use of new, innovative alloys such as OTW-12Ti, OTW-16XS wires and also special coating (MX5). Today Statoil- Hydro approves OTW-12Ti, OTW-16XS and the MX5 coating for drilling.
