Stainless steel and special alloys producer and distributor Sandvik will be showing its products at ADIPEC 2014 (the Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference), which takes place in the United Arab Emirates (UAE)’s capital between 10th – 13th November.

Haydn Eagle, Sandvik regional sales manager EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) said: “For Sandvik ADIPEC is of special importance providing us with the opportunity to demonstrate to visitors just how our products, technical knowhow and extensive stock range can benefit their businesses and processes”.

“Our worldwide production and research and development expertise, linked with operationally proven corrosion resistant materials means we are able to advise on the best material choice for a given application. The combination of high strength and superior corrosion resistance in our duplex and super duplex stainless steels means it is possible to design and install lighter and longer lasting materials especially when it come to heat exchangers, production tubulars and casings and even coiled tubing for control and chemical injection lines.”

Examples of Sandvik’s extensive range of stainless steels and special alloy seamless tubes for hydraulic and instrumentation, heat exchanger, high temperature boiler and fertiliser plants will be on display. The company also supplies a comprehensive range of seamless pipe, welded pipe, butt weld fittings, flanges, screwed and socket weld fittings.

This allows the company to offer a complete package building service to customers, supplying the requirements for a total piping system, all from one source and delivered direct to site ready for installation. A complete range of associated services are available including: full project management, testing and certification, bevelling, cutting, colour coding and marking, PVC coating and full import and export documentation. A useful technical section on our website is the materials centre, where you can view and download technical data sheets and pressure calculation tables.

Of particular interest for upstream and downstream oil and gas operations is that the company works closely with plant operators and fabricators in the supply of advanced corrosion resistant alloy seamless tubes developed for the most aggressive environments. These offer considerable advantages such as extended operational life, reduced servicing and full life operational savings.

“Particularly in chemical, petrochemical and refineries where continuous and efficient operation of process plants is so important, the correct selection of seamless tube and pipe for use in coolers, condensers, boilers and heat exchangers as well as in the hydraulic and instrumentation tubing, is so important in eliminating plant shutdowns and avoiding costly lost production,” added Haydn Eagle.

For component manufacture Sandvik also supplies Sanmac duplex and super duplex stainless steel bar and hollow bar with increased machinability that maximises productivity allowing increased cutting speeds combined with reduced tool wear.
