Sandvik adds new tube line at Indian steel mill

Sandvik, a developer and producer of advanced stainless steels, special alloys, titanium and other high-performance materials, added a new cold finishing tube manufacturing line at its Mehsana mill, in Gujarat.

Sandvik Mehsana is a high-tech tube mill that produces advanced corrosion-resistant tube, pipe and hollows for heat exchangers and process equipment across a wide range of industries, including petrochemical, oil and gas, chemical and fertiliser.

With the addition of this new high-tech line, Sandvik aims to increase the availability of its high-quality seamless stainless tube, add flexibility for introducing new grades and strengthen regional service.

The new line is mainly aimed at the production of heat exchanger tubing and for other demanding industrial applications, and will double Mehsana’s cold-working capacity and thus allowing swifter delivery times across the Asia Pacific (APAC) region.

“We’re delighted to announce the added annual capacity for cold finished tube,” said Sharath Satish, President for Business Unit Tube APAC, Sandvik. “It is part of our ongoing commitment to customers in India and the Asia Pacific region to improve the availability of our top-quality products, broaden the portfolio and become the most reliable, one-stop shop in the region. Together with fabricators and end-users, we are expanding new opportunities to boost productivity and extend the lifecycle of their equipment with the help of predictable, high-precision tubing – delivered when they need it.”

The Mehsana manufacturing facility has been successively expanded and modernised in recent years. The focus has been on boosting capacity, adding new grades and sizes, and constantly improving to meet the highest global quality standards.

“Mehsana is a key pillar in our strategy of being a reliable global supplier of advanced corrosion resistant alloy products, with a focus on materials expertise, innovation and setting the standard in our niches,” said Michael Andersson, Head of Tube Division at Sandvik Materials Technology.
