  • Engineered ceramics expert showcases ways to make tools more productive – extending useful life and reducing downtime

    Golden, Colorado, USA, April 23,
    2018 ─ CoorsTek, the world’s leading engineered ceramics manufacturer, is featuring its advanced ceramic solutions for oil & gas applications at next week’s Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) at NRG Park in Houston, Texas.

    Severe wear, erosion, and corrosion in both offshore and oilfield conditions destroy traditional materials. Replacing metal and hardened alloy components with durable CoorsTek engineered ceramics can deliver up to 100 times less wear – meaning longer equipment life and less downtime.

    “The energy industry worldwide is focused on becoming even more productive and efficient, and innovative technology like we will see at OTC is the enabler,” said Becky Tomasek, Global Commercial Director – Energy at CoorsTek. “Our engineered ceramic solutions have helped operators and service companies reduce non-productive time, enhance output, and extend equipment life.”

    At OTC, CoorsTek will be highlighting examples of engineered ceramic technology improving the effectiveness and longevity of oil & gas equipment used in exploration, drilling, completion, and production. “Consider what a difference ceramic makes in a component as simple as a ball bearing used in all kinds of rotary equipment,” explains Pat Stone, Sr. Business Development Manager – Oil & Gas at CoorsTek. “Cerbec® ceramic bearing elements are virtually corrosion-free, 120% harder, 68% stiffer, and 75% smoother than steel – so equipment performs better and lasts longer in these severe environments. When you identify the parts that see extreme wear and replace those with an advanced ceramic, our customers have extended useful life 1-2 orders of magnitude.”

    The company will also show its SurgeTek™ and FlowGuard® pulsation mitigation equipment and pump replacement parts which help keep fluid handling systems running smoothly.

  • CoorsTek Wins Energy & Sustainability Award for Natural Gas-to-Hydrogen Conversion Technology at New York City Ceremony Honoring Innovators and Innovation

    Golden, Colorado, USA, April 16, 2018 – CoorsTek, the world’s leader in engineered ceramics, announced today that it has been named a winner at the Edison AwardsTM, a competition that recognizes and honors innovative new products, services and business leaders across the globe. CoorsTek active ceramic membrane technology won the 2018 Gold Edison Award in the category of Energy and Sustainability.

    Randel Mercer, chief technology officer of CoorsTek, Patricia M. Mishic, chief commercial officer of CoorsTek, and Per Vestre, managing director at CoorsTek Membrane Sciences, joined hundreds of senior executives from some of the world’s most recognized companies to acknowledge the hard work and commitment of all the 2018 Edison Award winners. 

    “CoorsTek is extremely honored to receive the Gold Edison award for our active ceramic membrane technology,” said Mercer. “This is the culmination of decades of global research collaboration.”

    Natural gas makes up a large portion of the world’s hydrocarbon resources, but much of it is stranded without economically viable paths to market. The active ceramic membrane one-step conversion process is also economical at much smaller volumes due to its improvement in efficiency and yield. These factors alter the equation for production of vital commodities, including hydrogen and liquid hydrocarbons, in favor of natural gas over crude oil.

    “The active ceramic membrane enables cleaner, simpler and less expensive conversion of natural gas to fuels and chemicals than existing chemical processing technologies,” said Vestre. “They make production of hydrogen from abundant, low-cost natural gas so efficient that it has the potential to make hydrogen production a cleaner and more economical option for automotive fueling.”

    CoorsTek active ceramic membrane can be applied to a growing variety of energy conversions. Research indicates that ceramic membranes can be a competitive technology for hydrogen production with integrated carbon capture, even at a scale required for cost-effective ammonia production. Hydrogen is an energy carrier for next-generation fuel cell electric vehicles and is already an important molecule for a range of industrial processes from food processing to manufacturing of glass and semiconductors, with ammonia-based fertilizers as the single largest application for hydrogen today.

     “We are excited to see our vision to make the world measurably better come to life through the research and development of membrane technology like active ceramic membranes,” said Mishic. “Our goal at CoorsTek is to nurture partnerships with customers across all industries and technologies to help solve their toughest technical and product challenges using the high-performance benefits of engineered ceramics. We are consistently evaluating new markets and applications where ceramics bring value and future potential.”


    The ballot of nominees for the Edison Awards was judged by a panel of more than 3,000 leading business executives including past award winners, academics and leaders in the fields of product development, design, engineering, science and medical. The winners were recognized at a ceremony in New York City on April 11, 2018.

    CoorsTek was the recipient of the Silver Edison Award for CeraShield™ ceramic armor in 2017.
