Sandvik to Highlight Tube and Pipe Consistency

Press release date: February 28, 2014

Sandvik will ask the question, "How reliable is your tubing?" on its stand at Tube 2014.

The reason behind this is so that visitors can fully appreciate the standard of tubular products they are buying and subsequently understand the operational limitations.

"It really is all about understanding the quality and consistency of material and to explain why Sandvik delivers seamless tube that does set a higher standard," explained Michael Andersson, head of Product Area Tube, Sandvik Materials Technology.

A significant factor is the company's ability to supply consistent quality and chemical composition, batch after batch, ensuring operational capability and performance standards are never compromised.

It will highlight the fact that changes in the chemical composition, such as levels of nickel, chromium and molybdenum can significantly affect the performance of tubes in a process plant even compromising the operational reliability.

"At Sandvik we are delivering seamless tube products that not only meet the standard but exceed it in order to ensure customers obtain the best in terms of operational reliability, corrosion resistance, cleanliness, hardness control and dimensional tolerances," added Michael Andersson.

Among the innovative solutions on display will be seamless tube and pipe developed for process plants, chemical, petrochemical, refineries, pulp and paper and power generation plants for use in reactors, coolers, condensers, boilers and heat exchangers, along with hydraulic and instrumentation tubing.

Examples of Sandvik high-alloy stainless steel tubes for high-temperature applications in the steel and lime industries, offer improved energy efficiency, production consistency and safety benefits, will be displayed.

Sandvik Sanmac™ duplex bar and hollow bar will also be shown, optimizing machining characteristics for component production and offering increased productivity while reducing waste and operational costs.

Throughout the exhibition Sandvik Material experts will be available to advice on material grade selection and suitability for specific applications.
