Express delivery program

sandvik.jpgLate in 2014 the technicians of an Egyptian Propane Dehydrogenation plant had to face the truth - several heat exchangers had failed unexpectedly and caused a production shut-down.

Fast action was needed. In close cooperation SANDVIK and the licensor developed a solution. The result - within just ten weeks, Sandvik had delivered 12 tons of super-duplex tubes (Sandvik SAF 2507) and proved the effectiveness of its express delivery program for duplex steels.

Besides major precautions when operating a plant unexpected material failures cannot be ruled out completely. In the case of the Egyptian plant, Sandvik says it was able to make a difference because of its extensive expertise in producing and testing seamless stainless steel tubes, its high delivery flexibility and its long-term and trusting relationship with the licensor.
