28 Nov Outokumpu turns up the heat with Tubacex
The two companies have developed seamless tubes that are optimised for service temperatures up to 1150°C.
The Finnish stainless steel manufacturer’s Outokumpu Therma 253 MA billets were used as a starting material during the new product development. The technical teams of both companies worked closely together to achieve the positive result.
“Our tubes provide excellent cyclic oxidation response at high temperatures as well as very good mechanical and corrosion properties,” states Diego Herrero, Tubacex’s innovation and technology corporate director. “These characteristics are needed in aggressive environments such as production of carbon black.”
A Spanish company, Tubacex produces hot and cold finished tubes that have various uses for the likes of the chemical, petrochemical and power generation industries.
