Lambda's LPB Eliminates Sour Well Sulfide Cracking

AUGUST 17, 2017 - Lambda Technologies has developed a surface treatment for oil field tubulars that can prevent oil and gas spills caused by hydrogen sulfide cracking. Low plasticity burnishing (LPB®) applies a deep, beneficial surface layer of compressive residual stress to mitigate hydrogen sulfide cracking. By putting the exposed surface in high residual compression far below the tensile...
