Breaking news - New developed p110101.6 mm EUE tubing

To meet the downstream user’s demand for high strength external upset tubing and expand market share of high added value product, Angang seamless steel pipe mill developed the potential of equipment and has developed a successful forming p110101.6 mm EUE tubing.
At present the product has a production of 1100 tons, and get the user's widely praise.
Under the situation of the world's energy demand continues to grow, as a major energy producers of oil mining challenge the deep oil and gas wells and high corrosion of oil and gas wells which are difficult to extract. The deeper the oil well is, the higher the oil companies require for the tubing thread strength.
Last November, a user to Angang proposes p110101.6 mm EUE tubing requirements, the product as API non-standard specifications, high value-added products.
Used in deep well mining of oil and gas pipeline in high strength thread index demand is higher, external upset processing is carried out on pipe head.
Angang seamless steel pipe of the original two EUE tubing are secondary molding, there exists a tin thickness, appearance is not smooth, the cost is higher, cannot satisfy the needs of customers.
In order to improve the grade of products, expand market share, high added value products the factory mining potential external upset existing production line equipment, carry out product development research.
Project team operation technical personnel on the basis of many years of production, from the grinding tool design, heating system and three aspects of equipment and then built bottleneck problem of new products, successfully developed 40 hits a molding 101.6 mm EUE tubing, qualified rate reached 100%.
At present, the product has been formed a large-scale production, and to receive additional orders.

Indonesia starts cancelation of anti-dumping duties on seamless steel pipe

Indonesia's finance department announced that in order to enhance the competitiveness of the domestic steel tube import industry, the finance department decided to cancel the provisionalanti-dumping duty of 81% for imported seamless steel pipe in China, Japan, South Korea and Singapore since June 12.
According to the ministry of finance department, a spokesman for Indonesia's anti-dumping committee recently did a research on the imported situation of seamless steel pipe for other countries, and found that most of them are importing seamless steel pipe by dumping price, while the Indonesian government in order to protect the domestic steel industry, has been levied 81% of anti-dumping duties on imported steel pipe, which will undoubtedly affect Indonesia import of seamless steel pipe. To this, the Indonesian government decided to cancel the anti-dumping duties.

How much do you know about high pressure boiler pipe

High pressure boiler tube manufacturing method:
(1) general boiler tube temperature in use is under 450 ℃, the domestic pipe mainly use 10, 20 carbon steel hot rolled seamless steel pipe or cold drawn seamless steel pipe.
(2) high pressure boiler tubes are often used in high temperature and high pressure conditions, when using the pipe under the action of high temperature flue gas and water vapor, oxidation and corrosion will happen. It requires steel pipe with high rupture strength, high oxidation corrosion resistance, and have good organizational stability.
High pressure boiler tube USES:
(1) general boiler tube is mainly used to produce water wall tube, water pipe, superheated steam tube, locomotive boiler superheated steam pipe, large and small pipe and tube arch brick, etc.
(2) high pressure boiler tube is mainly used to manufacture high-pressure and ultrahigh-pressure boiler superheater tubes, reheater tube, airway, and main steam pipe, etc.
The high temperature performance of high pressure boiler tube is divided into general boiler tube and high pressure boiler tube.
No matter general boiler tube or high pressure boiler tube according to the different requirements for their use and can be divided into various kinds of seamless steel pipe.
High pressure boiler tube specifications: 8-1200 x 1-200 - mm
High pressure boiler tube executive standard: GB3087-1999, 20G high pressure boiler tube, GB5310-1999 GB/T5310-2008 - China's national standards ASME SA106 - the boiler and pressure vessel code ASME SA210 - the boiler and pressure vessel code ASME SA213 - the boiler and pressure vessel code DIN17175 - the German industrial standards.

January steel exports new high of 2015 China

Weak domestic demand, China January imports of iron ore, crude oil, copper number were high level drop. However, China January steel exports 10290000 tons, an increase of 52.1%.
The latest customs data show, in January China's steel exports 10290000 tons, an increase of 54.3%,  comparing increased 1.2%, over the same period, imports of 1150000 tons of steel, an decrease of 60000 tons, year-on-year decrease of 14.8%. Data also shows that, in January, 78580000 tons of iron ore imports, 9.4% year-on-year decline, a decline of 9.5%.
Customs data display, January steel exports beyond all expectations to still maintain strong growth, that is, an increase of 52.1%, in no way inferior to 2014.
In 2014, Chinese steel exports including seamless steel pipe and welded steel pipe is strong, causing multinational trade war on China. In January, the formal implementation of China boron steel export tax rebate cancellation of the new deal, the industry has been expected steel exports will drop in the first quarter. To our expect, even so,even if the sale is off-season, still strong steel exports.
In 2014, the boron steel exports can enjoy 9% to 13% of the tax rebate rate.
