Mayr & Wilhelm, a German fabricator specialized on shell-and-tube heat exchanger, has chosen Alleima for duplex SAF™ 2205 stainless steel heat exchanger tubing.

The order is the largest recently for duplex stainless steel SAF™ 2205 in Central and Eastern Europe.

Mayr & Wilhelm is a leading equipment manufacturer in Germany and the preferred supplier for the chemical and petrochemical industries in Europe.

SAF™ 2205 was selected because of its excellent corrosion resistance and high resistance to stress corrosion cracking (SCC) in chloride-bearing and hydrogen sulfide environments. It also has high resistance to pitting, general-, crevice- and erosion corrosion and corrosion fatigue. The grade provides a high mechanical strength - roughly twice the proof strength of austenitic stainless steel – physical properties that offer design advantages, and good weldability.

Mayr & Wilhelm chose Alleima because of its materials expertise, good lead times, delivery, quality products, and deep knowledge of the heat exchanger industry. Alleima provides a high level of service, including technical support.

“I am very proud that Mayr & Wilhelm have chosen us as their supplier. This is the largest order for heat exchanger tubes for decades in our region. This order shows the importance of close customer relationships and close teamwork, when everyone shares the same commitment and passion to deliver the absolute best in material solutions,” says Dirk Hüsen, Regional Sales Director Germany & CEE Tube EMEA.
