Hudson provides enclosure solutions for the oil and gas industry including custom material procurement as well as advising and working with the customer to insure that their expectations are met. Through collaborative design, Hudson is able to make sure the finished product will perform to industry standards in the field. When formulating custom solutions for oil and gas applications, there are multiple challenges to address.

Industry Challenges

Industry Challenges

Material Sourcing

The oil and gas industry requires components and equipment made from high performance metals that can withstand environmental and application demands-correct materials must be sourced for fracking and gas extraction applications.

Mechanical Failure

Mechanical equipment failures pose product quality issues as well as safety issues for workers. Most companies in the Oil and Gas industry implement their own accurate failure analysis technology on equipment prototypes and finished products ensuring both safety and quality while maintaining efficiency and production. Positive material identification practices reduce the chances of material issues leading to mechanical failures.

Environmental Conditions

Equipment used in the oil and gas industry is exposed to harsh conditions and must withstand environmental challenges including:

  • Extreme temperatures
  • Exposure to light
  • Vibration
  • Pressure variations
  • Exposure to volatile materials
  • Corrosion

Solutions from Hudson

At Hudson Technologies, we utilize deep drawn stamping for our metal stamped components. Deep drawn stamping delivers reduced production time, overall material waste, and cost. Deep drawn stamping often utilizes other forming operations to complete components, including:

  • Bulging
  • Coining
  • Curling
  • Dimpling
  • Embossing
  • Extruding
  • Holes
  • Ironing
  • Marking
  • Necking
  • Notches
  • Threading
  • Trimming

Case Study : Featured Solution

We recently completed a solution case study for a large customer in the oil and gas industry, who required a quick-engineered solution with the ability to perform at production levels. Hudson Technologies prototyped and produced a deep drawn case and lid fabricated from Alloy 49 material to meet the customer’s expectations. We utilized this custom performance shielding material to deliver a case that offered enhanced performance. The end use of these products is to map the ocean floor, and below using seismic technology to identify new sources of oil and gas.

Catalog tooling was used to deliver early prototypes for initial concept validation testing before the custom case and lid were tooled. Hudson’s design and engineering capabilities were able to combine multiple pieces to deliver a single, high performance product, which gained approval from the client, leading to repeat product partnerships.

Hudson’s design, engineering, and production capabilities worked together with the customer to produce a high-performance product that has worked extremely well. The customer shared with Hudson their satisfaction with the entire process by placing several repeat orders.

What’s Next at Hudson?

Hudson Technologies continues to make investments in the new technologies required to meet the ever-increasing demands of our customers and the industries we serve. Recently, we’ve upgraded productivity with the addition of a five-axis cutting laser and eight robotic arms. We’ve also added a Platarg transfer press which has given us increased capacity with faster and more efficient production runs.
