Sandvik adds new tube line at Mehsana mill

10 February 2020

To increase the availability of its high-quality seamless stainless tube, add flexibility for introducing new grades and strengthen regional service, Sandvik is adding a new cold finishing tube manufacturing line at its Mehsana Mill, in Gujarat western India. The new high-tech line, mainly aimed at the production of heat exchanger tubing and for other demanding industrial applications, will double Mehsana’s cold-working capacity and thus allow for swifter delivery times across the Asia Pacific region.

Cold finished seamless stainless tube from Sandvik is especially popular among fabricators and OEMs using high-temperature heat exchangers with special requirements for resisting corrosion and high temperatures. The tube is used in a wide range of industries such as petrochemical, oil & gas, chemical, fertilizer, and others.

Sandvik maintains a highly integrated and sustainable manufacturing process, with tube products made from 84% recycled metal using efficient manufacturing processes.

The Mehsana mill tube program covers ANSI pipes, redraw hollows, heat exchanger tube, and high-temperature tube. Tube grades comprise a wide range of corrosion-resistant alloys (CRAs) – from austenitic and super austenitic to duplex, super duplex and nickel alloys.
