The energy industry requires a broad range of parts, large and small, made from both metals and plastics. Typical requirements for the energy sector include:
Below are some of the types of parts we can manufacture for customers in the energy sector:
The world is dependent on the oil and gas or fossil fuel industry, one of the most economically powerful industries on Earth. A huge range of equipment and machinery is required for the extraction, refining, and transportation of oil and gas. Manufacturable parts for this industry include pump components, valves, and piping made from strong and chemically resistant materials.
The electrical power industry involves generating, transmitting, and distributing electricity. Generation can take many forms, including renewable and fossil fuels, while transmission of electricity depends on a transmission network comprising power lines. Distribution involves moving power from a local substation to individual consumers. Common electrical power parts include tower body parts, transformer heat exchangers, and bus ducts.
Arguably the most important part of the global energy industry is renewable energy, whose future success will help tackle the climate crisis. Renewable energy comprises hydroelectric, wind, and solar power, as well as alternative fuels. At 3ERP, we can manufacture renewable energy parts and prototypes such as turbine gears and shafts, solar panel frames, and piping for hydroelectric power plants.
Wind energy production requires durable, long-lasting parts that can take enormous stress while maintaining accuracy. We are able to produce precise blades for handling wind pressure with minimum wear and tear.
Aside from the solar panels themselves, there are various parts that need precise manufacturing, like frames, back rails and carrier rails. Milling and drilling machines are ideal for such projects and CNC machines are specialized in producing solar panel parts in general.
Hydropower turbines and generators need to be durable against pressure and water damage, often utilizing carbon and stainless steel parts. We use advanced technologies to produce all sorts of components from simple shafts and bushings to hydro turbine housings, impellers, and covers.
We offer a huge range of material possibilities with all our manufacturing processes. Some common choices for energy projects are listed below.
3ERP offers wide variety high level surface finishes. We only list some of the common finishing options. There are more finish options for custom parts for energy industry.
