We help customers extend uptime, increase reliability and reduce the environmental impact of their processes.

Due to their excellent resistance to various types of corrosion, our tubular products in advanced stainless steels and special alloys help customers extend uptime, increase reliability and reduce the environmental impact of their processes.

For example, tubes in Safurex™, a specially developed duplex alloy, enables an oxygen-free process in fertilizer production that is both safer (by eliminating the risk of explosion) and more efficient. This increases productivity by up to 30 percent.

Our metal-cutting tools are used for the efficient manufacturing of components such as valves, flanges and couplings, which are typically part of piping systems in many core processes. Coupled with our machining expertise, we help customers achieve the higher component quality and consistency necessary to reduce the risk of leaking gas and other media. This, in turn, leads to increased process safety and lower maintenance costs.

In the area of industrial heating, Kanthal™ heating elements and systems can operate at extreme temperatures, enabling our customers to make their processes more energy efficient. Coupled with long service life, these heating solutions also contribute to greater productivity.

Next generation duplex stainless steels

Using our metallurgical expertise, we are adding more advanced duplex materials to our tube and pipe program.
