4140 mod 18-22HRc - 1% Chromium-Molybdenum Through Hardening Steel for Oilfield Applications

Surcharge

Both Scrap and most alloys saw a small increase going into April, meaning surcharges for the majority of grades increased slightly.

Nickel has been rising steadily (albeit not significantly) in recent weeks and therefore we would expect to see this filter through to the surcharges in the coming weeks.

Surcharge information as listed via Liberty Speciality Steels where possible, other based on mean chemical analysis for the given grade.

Description

4140 mod 18-22HRc grade steel is a chromium-molybdenum steel used widely for drilling and completion parts in downhole applications.

It is a higher carbon version of 4130 resulting in greater strength and ruling sections. This grade can easily achieve yield strengths of 110KSI, but it should not be used in sour service environments above 22HRc (approx 80KSI Yield Strength).

4140 has poor weldability due to the risk of weld cracking, however machinability is fair and forgeability is very good. 

This grade is also available in 30-36HRc condition for higher strength applications.

Typical applications of 4140 mod 18-22HRc grade steel

  • Tool joints in drill stem assemblies 
  • Oil & gas applications for sour service
