Alleima accelerates heat exchanger express program with advanced tubing materials. EMEA customers receive top technology in 8 weeks.
Outokumpu is entering the metal powder business for additive manufacturing. The Finnish manufacturer opened a new atomisation plant in Germany in April.
In order to improve performance of the existing heat exchanger tubes, CENTRAVIS has developed a novel technology of double quenching of the material (02Ð¥22Ð?5Ð?Ð3, a Russian analogue to duplex 1.4462/UNS S31803), and in 2014 initiated five-months long corrosion testing, which has proven that the material has superior performance against all types of corrosion, as well as excellent mechanical properties. Heat exchanger tubes of this duplex steel manufactured by CENTRAVIS allows customers to decrease both direct (regular replacement of the tubes) and indirect (repairs and idle times affecting productivity) costs due to significantly higher corrosion resistance of the material of up to 2.8 to 2.9 times.
Heat exchanger manufacturers usually order their tubes from mills in specific lengths. Delivery times tend to be long, which is not ideal when small quantities are needed for urgent repair jobs and maintenance.
Alfa Laval has received an order to supply Alfa Laval Packinox heat exchangers to one of the world’s largest petrochemical complexes in Saudi Arabia.
