Eight weeks from order to placement. That is how fast customers in Europe Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) can receive their heat exchanger tubes, as the result of a new express program.
What can keep a refinery manager awake at night? Most likely it’s the fear of an unplanned shutdown of the plant.
“Heat exchanger tubes may only be a small part of a large and complex refinery, but when they fail unexpectedly it can force a shutdown and a significant loss of income,” says Eduardo Perea, Senior Product Manager Tube EMEA.
As the result of a new heat exchanger express hollows program, our customers in Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) can now rest assured.
It means our EMEA customers who urgently need to replace heat exchanger tubes can get them in just eight weeks from order placement.
Many of our hollows are already in stock and ready to go today.
“Our heat exchanger express program is yet another example of our commitment to always seeking to be closer to our customers. To work out what you need before you realize it yourself. It means you can get the absolute best in tubing materials technology, with the highest quality, in only eight weeks from order placement,” says Eduardo Perea Senior Product Manager Tube EMEA.
Tubes included in the program come in an extensive range of advanced duplex, super-duplex, austenitic, and super-austenitic materials suitable for all types of heat exchangers such as seawater coolers, condensers, evaporators, heaters, and reheaters. The four grades in the program are:
SAF™ 2205: duplex (austenitic-ferritic) stainless steel.
SAF™ 2507: super-duplex (austenitic-ferritic) stainless steel for service in highly corrosive conditions.
Alleima® 254 SMO*: high-alloy austenitic stainless steel used in seawater and other aggressive chloride-bearing media.
