Superior Tube offers heat exchanger tubing to TEMA

Superior Tube, a manufacturer of precision metal tubing for safety critical applications, has received a contract from TEMA India to supply heat exchanger tubing for a new Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel.

The vessel is among several commissioned by Brazilian energy giant Petrobras to develop the oil reserves in the pre-salt fields in the Santos basin off the Brazilian coast. For the vessel’s heat exchangers, Superior Tube provided 37 kms of seamless alloy 625 tubing. Manufactured to the most stringent specifications, the tubing will undergo a rigorous testing process in order to meet high-quality requirements.
