Offshore and marine applications

Kanigen Group has worked for almost 30 years with manufacturers of hydraulic systems or components, ball, slide and butterfly valves, offshore compressors, oil and gas flow measurement systems, drilling components, extremely heavy lifting, lifting safety system, submarine elevator rods, etc.

High-phosphorus diffused electroless nickel, for example, meets the strict requirements of underwater, on and off-shore applications. It increases:

  • Corrosion resistance
  • Wear resistance in extreme conditions

Our solutions

Protection against corrosion

Underwater environment


Reduced Friction

Qualified Processes

Kanigen Group has a strong presence in the hydraulics and gas industry and is co-author of the NAM specification.

On request, we can work in accordance with diffusion layer application standards.

The following standards can be applied:

  • Petrobras: ET-3000.00-1500-950-PMU-001
  • Technip: KA02
  • NOV: SP-ENG-004
  • Wellstream: MTL-5212
  • Schlumberger: ES40290
  • Etc.
