Production of heavy gauge pipeline steels with integrated welding support

International Seminar on Welding of High Strength Pipeline Steels

Modern steels for pipelines need to combine high strength with good toughness and excellent weldability. Furthermore higher steel grades and heavy gauges become more and more important and resistance to hydrogen induced cracking may also be required. High class pipeline steels meeting the increasing demands can be produced in the hot rolling mills of ThyssenKrupp Steel in Europe and America. Wide experience regarding the production of pipeline steels for conventional and sour service in thicknesses up to 25.4 mm ensures top quality. The technical support of customers is of great importance: welding-related topics can be investigated in a new, well equipped welding laboratory.
