Dura-Bar ductile iron is a cost-saving alternative to low-medium carbon steels and has similar strengths with excellent free machining properties.
Dura-Bar gray irons provide a wide range of improvements through machinability, strength, hardness and wear capabilities.
Hydraulic Cylinder Piston
Dura-Bar brings many advantages over steel, and several were realized by the manufacturer of hydraulic cylinder pistons. Machinability, wear resistance and part life were all issues that needed solutions fast. Dura-Bar provided those solutions which resulted in a total part cost reduction.
New Gray Grades Expand Opportunities
Explore the possibilities and focus in on key properties with 2 new grades of Dura-Bar gray iron, G2S and G2P. Strength and heat treat response for surface hardenability are requirements for many applications, including well completion tools in the oil and gas industry.
Global Petroleum Show
Join Dura-Bar June 13-15 at booth 1667 in Halls A, B, C at Stampede Park in Calgary, Alberta. The 49th year of the show expects over 18,000 companies and over 44,000 attendees. An industry leading event, GPS includes opportunities in upstream, midstream and downstream sectors with companies, business partners, media and industry analysts from 92 countries.
Reduce Compressor Rotor Costs Using Dura-Bar
Dura-Bar outperformed steel in a recent case study with a major air and gas compressor OEM. The per part cost for the compressor rotor was significantly reduced, with adjustments to machining speeds and depth of cut. Several additional performance advantages were also realized.
