Vasa has so far had 1000 new bolts inserted in the hull. Careful measurement and evaluation has been ongoing for a year in order to measure movement, pressure and impact on the ship. The result is gratifying: movement is only very slight and a further 4000 bolts will now be replaced in Vasa.
Sandvik will show visitors to its stand at PulPaper 2014 how to increase boiler lifetimes with composite tube solutions that yield excellent corrosion properties with superior resistance to stress corrosion cracking.
Sandvik has developed a complete portfolio of grades with mechanical properties specifically developed for welding in cryogenic applications. Designed to help customers achieve trouble-free mechanical welding operations, the grades provide high quality weldments that can withstand the tough conditions which normally prevail in cryogenic applications.
'Come Together' is the Sandvik theme at OTC 2014 in Houston, Texas, (5 – 8 May) Booth 2701, bringing together partnerships with its customers to provide industry leading corrosion resistant material solutions.
