Lances

Sandvik provides stainless steel tubes for different types of lances used in a variety of applications. Our lance tubes are typically used in pulverized coal injection (PCI) lances for blast furnaces and lime kiln lances.

Long service life in severe conditions

Using Sandvik stainless lance tubes is a cost-effective alternative to lance tubes in conventional grades of, for example, ASTM 310H and 316H types. Sandvik lance tubes provide long service life and reduced maintenance costs, particularly in applications with severe high-temperature corrosion conditions.
