Tubes & Pipes for Pressure Applications

Seamless, hot finished, standardized and customized

voestalpine Tubulars’ Tubes and Pipes for Pressure Applications are used in all areas of heat transfer, including the splitting up of extracted media in refineries, energy management in power stations and petrochemical plant component.

Fields of Applications

  • Refineries - for hydrocarbon processing/ media extraction
  • Power plants (Power Generation) – as unalloyed and medium alloyed steel grades
  • The chemical and petrochemical industry – as components
  • The nuclear industry – with extended testing procedures

Product characteristics & customer benefits

At your choice: standardized or customized

Find the optimal product solution with us

  • Carbon steel and low alloyed tubes and pipes are manufactured in size ranges between 26.70 to 200.00 mm (1.050 and 7 ⅞ inch) in grades according to international standards as well as to customer specifications. For various customized solutions we can offer tests with internationally recognized test certificates, because our testing facilities have an accreditation in the field of mechanical materials testing according to ISO/IEC 17025: 2017.
