LSS™ 718 EP Nickel Superalloy
LSS™ 718 EP is a precipitation hardening nickel-base superalloy specifically designed for use in the exploration and production of oil and natural gas. It exhibits superior corrosion resistence in hostile enviroments such as deep, hot wells containing CO2, H2S, chlorides and sulfer.
LSS™ 718 EP offers an excellant combination of strength, toughness, ductility, corrosion and embrittlement resistance and formability. It can be used over a very wide temperature range - from cryogenic temperatures to 1400° (760°C).
Typical uses for LSS™ 718 EP include:
- valve stems
- blow-out preventers
