Swedish steelmaker Sandvik has opened a state-of-the-art coiled tubing line for premium grades of seamless stainless steel products in smaller dimensions at its Zhenjiang tube mill near Shanghai, China. According to the company, the commitment to produce longer lengths of weld-free coiled tubing locally will enable its Asia Pacific region customers to receive deliveries within 28 days, instead of waiting four to six months for longer length reels to arrive from overseas.

The initial focus will be on Sandvik 3R60 tubing an austenitic chromium-nickel steel with a minimum of 2.6% molybdenum and low carbon content in outer diameters from 6.0mm to 14mm. The coiled tube is supplied as level-wound on plastic-wrapped wooden reels in standard (55m-260m) or longer lengths (135m – 611m), or as bulk coil, strapped into boxes. The new range complements Sandvik’s current offering of six-metre straight lengths of hydraulic and instrumentation tubing, which are already available 'in the widest range of sizes and grades on the market today'.

Mr Satish Sharath, Sandvik Tube APAC's business unit president, said that the new coiled tube offering was a further step in Sandvik's commitment to boost customer competitiveness in China and throughout the Asia Pacific region. “We’ve seen a rising demand on projects within chemical processing, oil and gas, alternative energy and other industries for urgent local supplies of coiled tubing. The compact reels, ease of transport and ability to precisely cut lengths in challenging situations allow customers to work fast and efficiently, with fewer connectors and zero risk of system leakage.”
