Nuclear power generation
As an industry under extremely high regulatory standards, the quality and reliability of products used for critical processes, such as tubular and welding products, cannot be overestimated.
We have been providing products in advanced stainless steels and special alloys to more than 100 nuclear reactors worldwide. These products, often serving in a plant's primary circuit, have set an industry standard for trouble-free performance.
Our steam generator tubes, for example, are used in heat exchangers that convert water into steam, one of the most demanding processes in a nuclear power plant. Our integrated production and advanced testing procedures ensure that the tubes meet the most stringent demands, enabling customers to save valuable inspection time when installed.
Another example is nuclear fuel tube used for containing and encapsulating the fissile material and transferring heat from fuel to the reactor water. This type of advanced tube also serves as a first critical barrier, preventing the release of radioactive fission products into the reactor systems. With more than 60 years experience of nuclear fuel tube manufacturing we are continuously contributing to the development of safer and more efficient fuel performance.
