Sandvik to Exhibit Materials for Trouble-free and Safer Critical Applications at World Nuclear Exhibition

Sandvik will demonstrate how its materials technology, expertise and tube solutions are bringing long-term value, improved safety and reduced failures to power plants worldwide at this year’s World Nuclear Exhibition (WNE). The leading event for the global nuclear energy sector takes place in Paris Le Bourget, France, from October 14-16.

More than 6,000 visitors are expected at the exhibition including key international decision makers, operators, buyers, government organizations and more. They have a chance to see the full range of advanced and quality assured Sandvik materials for critical nuclear applications, and learn how these solutions are proving integral to safer and trouble-free nuclear operations with greater equipment lifetimes in power plants worldwide.

“Sandvik will showcase its ongoing contributions in important technology shifts in Nuclear and other energy segments at the WNE on Stand: G81. Our stainless steels and special alloys cover all fuel designs and most technical specifications, and have been delivered to around 100 reactor units around the world since 1964,” said Mikael Blazquez, Manager of Business Unit Nuclear, Sandvik Materials Technology.

“Because we work closely with our customers as a trusted partner, we know their specifications so we can advise them accordingly. Our high quality solutions include steam generator tubes designed to meet the most stringent MIZ-30/70 requirements. Customers also have choice of a wide range of advanced stainless steel and high nickel alloy nuclear fuel cladding tubes by Sandvik.”

Visitors to WNE 2014 can see the extensive Sandvik program of tube and pipe specially developed for a range of primary, secondary and auxiliary systems. The program comprises more than 40 different materials supplied as tubes in seamless, welded or welded and redrawn condition with many other special grades available on request.

Products on display will include Sandvik Sanicro 69TM austenitic nickel-chromium alloy used primarily for steam generators. The material has extremely high resistance against stress corrosion cracking in primary side pressurized water reactor (PWR) conditions, and demonstrates superior pitting corrosion resistance in chloride containing solutions when compared with standard grades like Alloy 600.

Mikael Blazquez added, “Meeting the industry in person at events like WNE is key to how Sandvik understands its customers’ needs better than anyone else. Our advanced materials are produced according to customers’ most strict quality requirements, for example RCC-M and ASME III are our specialty. The technical challenges are our driving force in producing materials that meet the toughest quality and safety requirements in your nuclear projects.

“Demands on nuclear power plants leave no room for compromising on materials. All Sandvik products are reinforced by a comprehensive quality assurance system implemented throughout our entire organization. This is among the reasons why the nuclear industry and Sandvik are a perfect match.”
