Selecting the right tubular material for hydraulic and instrumentation systems in marine environments

Choosing the best tube material grade for hydraulic and instrumentation (H&I) installations is not always an easy task, as there are several factors that must be considered.

The selected material needs to withstand any kind of corrosive environment it might be exposed to during operation. This might include anything from demanding tropical marine climates on offshore platforms and ships, to mild inland climates or even petrochemical and refinery environments.

Join us on Thursday 27th May when Barinder J S Ghai, Regional Technical Marketing Manager, EMEA and Jonas Höwing, Technical Marketing Specialist from Sandvik Materials Technology, will review the mechanical and corrosion resistance properties of some common stainless steel, duplex grades and nickel base alloys widely used in H&I installations.

Topics Covered

  • Overview of Sandvik integrated tube production process
  • The suitability of different grades with corrosion and mechanical properties
  • Case study on marine environment and field testing

Register your interest before 5pm, Tuesday 25th May.
