Recuperator tubes

Recuperator tubes in a wide range of high-temperature corrosion resistant materials suitable for flue gas temperatures up to 1300ºC (2370ºF).

The Sandvik program covers materials for most types of recuperators used for heat recovery in, for example, steel and metal processing, glass production and carbon black production.

Materials for increased heat efficiency

The Sandvik program includes several materials allowing for higher operating temperature, enabling increased heat recovery and higher efficiency. Examples are Kanthal APMT and Sandvik 253 MA*.

Savings in fuel consumption at different waste gas and air preheat temperatures
