Steel Division

Heads and cones

Successful throughout the world

Our dished heads are found in applications such as heat exchangers, separators, columns, compressors, storage containers and tank cars. Our customers are found in the petrochemistry, oil and gas, paper and pulp, energy and railcar manufacturing industries. We are the world's only single-source supplier to deliver shell plates, heads and cones made of carbon steel in clad design.

Our materials

We use structural steels, fine-grained structural steels and pressure-vessel steels for carbon-steel heads and pressed parts.

We manufacture clad heads and pressed parts from all conventional carbon steels. We supply stainless and heat-resistant steel grades and non-ferrous metals and alloys as cladding materials for optimum corrosion resistance.

Headmolds and dimensions

We manufacture custom-made heads as a single part or welded from multiple parts. Multi-part cones are available in head gauges of up to 160 mm and diameters of up to 10,000 mm.
