Copper-beryllium alloy in hunt for oil

The offshore oil and gas industry depends heavily upon locating reserves efficiently and accurately. One company that manufactures suitable exploration tooling is Geolink. Its tool designs have proved extremely successful, and one crucial factor is the material used for many of the core components – Brush Wellman’s copper-beryllium Brush Alloy 25.

A key attribute of the alloy is that it can be heat-treated to induce precipitation hardening. This makes it possible to use pre-treated stock in the core components.
