Our patented manufacturing process produces superior finished products. Our process eliminates distortion of the CRA liner. There is significantly less variation of the inner layer when compared to traditionally manufactured lined pipes that are hydrostatically formed. Our process yields significant benefits to the customer: principally allowing uniform circumferential welds, limiting dilution with superior weld strength. Additionally, our manufacturing process produces exceptional grip strength between base metal and CRA liner.
Today's competitive environment compels businesses to seek every possible advantage. Smart companies are looking at all possibilities, including material advantages. New material technologies and manufacturing processes are solving problems that previously have limited product life cycles and created exposure to costly field failures. Sectors including Oil & gaz, Chimique, Power and Construction for example, are encountering applications where corrosion, high temperatures and pressures, and wear are limiting the lifespan or capabilities of their products and projects.
Previously, solid alloy or weld clad products have been the best options available, but those are both costly and can have extremely long lead times.
