Urea production

The Sandvik program includes products for several parts of the urea production process. We are, for example, a leading supplier of tubular products for piping systems and the high-pressure parts of the urea process. Sandvik tubes are typically used in the following equipment:

  • Pool condensers
  • Pool reactors
  • Scrubbers
  • Strippers

Since the 1970s, we have been leading the development of advanced stainless steels for the urea industry. Our research and development has resulted in materials with exceptionally low life-cycle cost in highly corrosive environments. Sandvik 2RE69 and Safurex®, two tube materials developed especially for the severe conditions in the urea production process, provide the necessary corrosion and mechanical properties..
