Investment castings and aluminium castings for the oil and gas sector

Dean Group has worked within the oil and gas industry for many years.

This is one of the biggest sectors in the world and can be split into upstream (exploration), midstream (transportation, storage and processing) and downstream (filtering and refining) areas. This market also requires a massive amount of precision castings, and investment castings form the technically-advanced parts required for such a demanding industry.

Dean Group and the Oil and Gas Industry

From concept to finished product, Dean Group can produce castings that are:

  • Complex
  • High-quality
  • Durable
  • Resistant to corrosion
  • Resistant to abrasion and to wear and tear

Castings at Dean Group

We can design and manufacture castings for both in-land and off-shore uses, including:

  • Valves and valve components
  • Impellers
  • Handling equipment
  • Flow and pressure control equipment
  • Filtration devices
  • Speciality items for rig and drilling applications

A Wide Range of Materials

At Dean Group, we also work with different materials, such as stainless steel, aluminium and nickel. This allows us to create the exact component for your project.

For example, steel can become damaged if not prepared to withstand high temperatures such as the ones found in oil processing plants. Unrefined oil also contains sulphur and hydrogen sulphide, which can corrode pipes – for this reason, additional processes, treatments and finishes can protect the metal.

Copper and bronze are also great for valves while titanium is suitable for tubing due to its strength and resistance to corrosion.
