Alleima unveils new alloy designed SAF™ 3007

Alleima, a global leader in advanced stainless steels and special alloys, has unveiled SAF™ 3007, a revolutionary duplex steel grade tailored for subsea umbilicals. Engineered to offer superior strength, fatigue properties, and corrosion resistance, SAF™ 3007 represents the latest innovation in Alleima’s extensive portfolio.

This next-generation duplex alloy, designed specifically for the offshore oil and gas industry, addresses the evolving demands of energy production in various regions worldwide. John Tokaruk, Global Product Manager for umbilical tubing at Alleima, emphasizes the critical need for efficient, cost-effective solutions in oilfields, particularly amidst a surge in energy demand following the COVID-19 pandemic.

With SAF™ 3007, Alleima aims to meet these demands by offering enhanced fatigue life, reduced costs, and improved pressure handling compared to its predecessor, SAF™ 2507. The alloy’s optimized chemical composition, including increased chromium content and the addition of tungsten, ensures superior corrosion resistance after welding, crucial for subsea umbilical applications.

Alleima’s commitment to sustainability is evident in its dedication to reducing carbon footprint and promoting environmental stewardship. SAF™ 3007’s lighter weight and thinner walls contribute to streamlined manufacturing processes, aligning with Alleima’s mission of delivering high-quality, eco-friendly solutions to the industry.
