Blow Out Preventer Uses Alloy 8627 But Plate or Casting Is an Option

A blowout preventer (BOP) is a high pressure safety valve system at the top of the well head which stops uncontrolled fluid/gas flow in the wellbore. There are two types of BOP valves -- annular and ram. One advantage the annular blowout preventer has over ram-type blowout preventers is the ability to seal on a variety of pipe sizes. This presentation by the SSFA compares castings vs plates as options both using alloy 8627. This article is posted courtesy of Industeel , a supplier of alloys used in many blow out preventers.
