New Sandvik Mehsana Steel Mill Doubles Capacity in Asia Pacific
Earlier this year, Sandvik added a new cold finishing tube manufacturing line at its Mehsana mill, in Gujarat, western India. Created to meet the growing demand for special alloy tubes in India and Asia Pacific, the additional line doubles Mehsana’s cold working capacity to allow swifter delivery times across the region.
Enhanced product portfolios
The mill was originally built specifically for the production of heat exchanger tubing and other demanding industrial applications. Now in addition to heat exchangers, our clients are able to purchase advanced corrosion-resistant tube, pipe and hollows, which can be applied in process equipment in various industries, including petrochemical, oil and gas, chemical and fertilizer.
The expansion of our product portfolio through an enhanced cold pilgering process can create greater variety and quantity for our customers. The new cold working line focuses on tubes in austenitic, super austenites, duplex and nickel-based alloys, with an emphasis on straight or U-bent tubes for shell-and-tube heat exchangers.
Sandvik maintains a highly integrated and sustainable manufacturing process, with tube products made from 84-percent recycled metal using efficient manufacturing processes. Driven by a ‘zero defects’ philosophy at the Mehsana mill, we ensure full traceability from melt to final tube, allowing customers to trace any product in every step of the production process back to the individual melt, heat and lot. This gives them full control over their product, empowering them to install or modify the material with full knowledge of its production history.
With increased capacity of products and solutions for our local customers, the Sandvik Mehsana mill has set the standard for customer support, expertise and innovation. We are excited to see what the future entails for the Mehsana mill serving the local and regional market.
