Advanced material selection in the oil and gas industry

Controlling everything in infinite detail, Copper Alloys takes a single source from metal to machining and all associated parts, providing a turnkey solution to your complex problem.

With made-to-order alloys available in over 170 formats, our metallurgists and engineers specialise in large-section forgings, rings, blocks, bars and pipes. Our integrated engineering process allows us to produce corrosion-resistant alloys, with parts small enough to hold in one hand to complex components big enough for you to walk through.

Adding unique value to the petrochemical industry, our ingenious technical team has over 100 years of combined metallurgical and industrial knowledge. We pride ourselves on supporting material selection in the oil and gas industry and maximising the mechanical properties for any application. Above all, we always go the extra mile to ensure that every material or component exceeds expectations.

Material selection in the oil and gas industry

Certified by the British Standards Institution Quality Register to ISO 9001: 2015 AS9100, Copper Alloys holds the highest level of manufacturer approval.

From existing industrial specifications to customised alloys for new applications, we are a source for complex, non-ferrous materials. This includes our exclusive range of Elite Alloys. These are some of the most corrosion-resistant alloys available globally for use in oil and gas infrastructure.

Through custom processes, fine-tuned technology and decades of research, our metallurgical specialists have mastered the art of engineering ground-breaking alloys for the petrochemical industry.

This includes explorative materials as well as nickel and copper-based metals.

Each component features optimised metallurgy, providing advanced mechanical and physical properties. Additionally, each material is rigorously tested through failure analysis to prevent faults and mitigate risk.

A single source for complex corrosion-resistant metal alloys

Over recent decades, we have built up a reputation for producing high-risk large parts and complex components over 500kgs finished weight. Metallurgists at Copper Alloys specialise in skilfully crafting corrosion-resistant alloys, including uns s32760, alloy 400 and c46400 naval brass.

Quality management is crucial to managing the risk in machining high-value metals. That’s why our Quality Management System is audited to the highest standards in the industry.

Our specialist Quality Department supports worldwide offshore technology. We have worked with leading engineering organisations such as General Electric, Shell and Exxon Mobil to name a few.

Unrivalled engineering support

We have the expertise and technical know-how to meet the most stringent of requirements. This allows our metallurgists and engineers to produce corrosion-resistant alloys suitable for oil and gas production, such as uns s32760, alloy 400, c46400 naval brass.

Through precision multi-axis milling and turning, Copper Alloys is class-leading at machining complex alloys and resolving performance issues. Our expertise covers subsea engineering, oil and gas exploration and extraction, as well as offshore and onshore processing and refining. Providing unrivalled project management, inspection, and supply chain integration, we also ensure full document control as well as a cost-effective business model.

Copper Alloys supports designers and mechanical engineers in closing the gap between performance and cost. Our team produces ingenious, cutting-edge components and materials, tailored to the petrochemical industry. Additionally, each material is rigorously tested through failure analysis to prevent faults and mitigate risk.

Our vast experience in converting raw material into finished metals allows us to enhance many, often conflicting, mechanical and physical properties. Furthermore, our clients receive unrivalled engineering support from production through to assembly.
