Oil and Gas Products

Oil and Gas providers are faced with increasing challenges for resilient, wear resistant materials and solutions to manage projects within harsh environments.  Customers within these industries are looking for greater durability and more robust options to replace traditional materials.

Nilcra Zirconia Petrochemical Components

Morgan Advanced Materials offers a range of zirconia and silicon nitride (Si3N4) materials that provide excellent wear, corrosion and thermal resistant characteristics enabling them to survive the most arduous environments.

Our Nilcra™ range of zirconia provides:

  • High mechanical strength and fracture toughness
  • Chemical wear resistance to the vast majority of reagents and abrasive slurries
  • Corrosion and abrasion wear resistance
  • Excellent resistance to cavitation – the killer of process control valves

For more information on our grades of zirconia, see our dedicated zirconia materials page

Our Nilcra ™ Engineering SiAlON range of silicon nitride provides:

  • High Strength at ambient & high temperatures up to 1000˚C
  • Excellent fracture toughness
  • Extremely high hardness & wear resistance
  • Low coefficient of thermal expansion
  • Very high thermal shock resistance
  • Excellent corrosion resistance in acids and alkaline

(We offer products made from other silicon nitride grades - to view click here for our dedicated web page)

Our materials are found in products that are evident in a wide range of applications including:

  • Directional Drilling Tool Components, (Gap Rings, Sleeves, Poppet Valves)
  • Ball Valves
  • Control Valves, (Plugs, Seats and Cages)
  • Pump Plungers
  • Dosing / Metering pumps
  • Liners & Sleeves
  • Pipeline Inspection

We work in partnership with our customers providing the most cost effective solution based on material design and development.  Our specialist guidance and expertise produces the most demanding geometries and tolerances starting from the concept stage to prototype and onto final production.
