Artificial Lift Pump Barrel Plating
Artificial lifts are a mainstay of the US petroleum industry; in fact 96% of US wells require some form of artificial stimulation for crude extraction. Pump barrels are a crucial component of artificial lifts and a heavy wear item, operating an oil extraction operation requires constant refurbishment of pump barrels. Because of the sheer volume of refurbishments and the precision required, a cost effective solution is a must.
Low cost Asian solutions are problematic; the precision required by US petroleum customers is almost unattainable from Asian firms, as well as the obvious logistical challenges.
At BHC Industries plating, we're committed to providing petroleum customer across the United States with a precision, low cost solution to this need. We've invested capital and developed proprietary equipment and processes to meet the needs of the petroleum industry. This commitment has resulted in contacts to provide ID etching and plating for over 300 pump barrels per week in diameters from 1-1/16" to 16". To better support all of our valued customers in the petroleum industry, we will soon be opening a new state of the art facility in Keene, Texas, dedicated to pump barrel plating.
