High strength low-alloy steels provide better mechanical properties compared to carbon steel. Generally speaking, grain size is reduced to reduce pearlite structure, increasing the material’s yield strength. Typical elements that are added to achieve this are titanium, copper, niobium and vanadium.
Howco fully understands that in Downhole, Sub Sea, and Wellhead applications, oil tool design emphasis is on safety, dependability and reliability.
Alloys such as 9Cr, 4140 and F22 have been designed to withstand these harsh environments
Howco's extensive Tube and Bar inventories are available to meet the most stringent QA and QC requirements.
