Nickel Plating Components for Rolls-Royce Oil and Gas Division

Electroless nickel plating is of course our speciality here at NiTEC. Our capacity for electroless nickel plating large parts cannot be matched in the UK. We were recently approached by Rolls-Royce with the prospect of electroless nickel plating a component for their oil and gas division.

Of course famous for making high quality cars, Rolls Royce are also world leaders in providing power
systems and services for use at sea, on land and in the air.

Rolls-Royce’s energy business supplies gas turbines, compressors and diesel power units to customers around the world and is a world leader in the supply of power for onshore and offshore oil and gas applications.

 

Operating in four major global market sectors, marine, energy, civil aerospace, and defense aerospace, we were of course delighted to help such a large and successful company.

Increase the Lifespan of Steam Turbines with Electroless Nickel Plating

Based in Derbyshire, Nitec have a wealth of experience electroless nickel plating for large multinational companies and a wide variety of industries.

As a leading provider of worldwide metal plating services, Nitec have recently worked with Elliott Turbo-Steam Turbines. Elliot steam turbines are specially built to be able to perform for years, and they have an excellent reputation as being the best in the industry.

Elliot steam turbines are very reliable and hard wearing, and by adding an electroless nickel coating, their life span can be further increased. As the addition of an electroless nickel coating is very hard, it can reduce the wear of the part when friction is an issue.

Elliot steam turbines are used in power generation and food processing,  chemical and petrochemical, pulp and paper, and the oil and gas industry.

For more information on how electroless nickel coatings can be used to increase the lifespan of components and reduce wear through friction, contact Nitec by visiting our website, or speaking to a member of our specialist team on 0845 224 357.

The Benefits of Electroless Nickel Plating

The process of electroless nickel plating is ideal for plating engineering components.

Electroless nickel plating creates a uniform coating which prevents corrosion effectively. The deposit formed by electroless nickel plating is based on a chemical reaction, causing the deposit to collect in equal thickness over all the part, regardless of its shape.

This completely uniform coating is a perfect solution for critical high-end engineering items including those used in defense  healthcare, automotive and aerospace.

The uniform coating of the electroless nickel plating also means that the surface is hard wearing, corrosion resistant and durable.

NiTEC are also specialists in diffused nickel plating technology, the copper plating process and the process of shotblasting & heat treatment.
