Stainless Steel Parts for Chevron

The Challenge

The components for pressure containing services were at risk of not arriving in time for scheduled maintenance. The customer needed to explore OEM-agnostic parts but had concerns about intellectual property.

The Solution

We developed and printed and additively manufacturable design for two ASME B16.48 Class 600 spacers, a 1,5″ Figure 8 blind and a 3″ Spacer for the Oil & Gas industry.

The Results

The components were manufactured to the API 20S standard in 8 weeks and Chevron’s additive manufacturing readiness program was accelerated by a whole year during the process.
