Our daily lives are highly dependent on the oil and gas industry. It extracts, refines, and distributes fossil fuels for use in our homes, transportation, and industries. However, machinery and equipment in the oil and gas industry operate in harsh environments. And OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) springs ensure the efficiency of these machines and equipment.
So, using high-quality OEM springs is a good way to prevent equipment failures and save money on maintenance. Here at Arrow Manufacturing, we specialize in the production of high-quality OEM springs for various industries, including the oil and gas sector.
Types of OEM Springs Used in the Oil and Gas Industry
Arrow Manufacturing produces different types of OEM springs for use in the oil and gas industry. These include compression springs, extension springs, and torsion springs.
Compression springs are used in valves, while extension springs can be found in various types of equipment, including drill bits. Torsion springs, on the other hand, are used in wellhead equipment, among other applications.
Manufacturing Processes for OEM Springs Used in the Oil and Gas Industry
OEM springs are typically manufactured using specialized equipment and techniques to meet oil and gas industry requirements. At Arrow Manufacturing, we employ advanced manufacturing processes, such as computer numerical control (CNC) machining, to produce high-quality springs.
The manufacturing process of OEM springs involves several stages: material selection, coiling, forming, heat treatment, and finishing.
- Manufacturing begins with material selection. To produce reliable and durable springs, Arrow Manufacturing uses high-quality materials such as oil-tempered wire, chrome silicon, and stainless steel.
- The wire is shaped and sized according to the specifications in the coiling and forming step.
- Then, heat treatment helps improve the strength and durability of the springs, and finishing involves the application of coatings to protect the springs from corrosion and other environmental factors.
- Lastly, OEM springs must undergo quality control procedures to ensure their reliability and safety. Arrow Manufacturing has stringent quality control procedures to ensure that every spring meets the industry’s standards.
Testing and Inspection of OEM Springs
Testing and inspection procedures are crucial in ensuring the reliability and safety of OEM springs used in the oil and gas industry.
At Arrow Manufacturing, testing methods used for compression, extension, and torsion springs include load, torque, and fatigue testing. And inspection procedures involve visual inspection, dimensional inspection, and surface inspection.
In conclusion, OEM springs are of utmost importance in the oil and gas industry. They not only help maintain proper alignment and positioning of the equipment but also prevent shock and vibration and ensure the reliable operation of the equipment. However, the oil and gas industry presents unique challenges for OEM springs, including extreme temperatures, pressure, and corrosive substances. Therefore, material selection and coatings are crucial in ensuring the durability and reliability of OEM springs in this industry.
At Arrow Manufacturing Co., we have extensive experience in designing and manufacturing OEM springs that meet the exact specifications of the equipment, ensuring reliable and consistent performance. We use advanced materials and manufacturing processes to create springs that can withstand the harsh conditions of the oil and gas industry.
