Previously, only line pipe made from steels up to and including grade X52 (L360) to API 5L were approved or considered safe for the transportation of pure hydrogen or its admixture to natural gas. Our investigations revealed that higher-grade steels up to and including X70 (L485) are equally safe and suitable. » read more
The combination of laser welding and ultrasonic testing in a single operating step has successfully passed its pilot test. This process can enormously reduce the cost and time involved in pipe-laying projects. » read more
Mannesmann Line Pipe is expanding the spectrum of methods by systematically combining various approaches to microstructure characterization with a view to optimizing the properties of its tube and pipe. » read more
Mannesmann Line Pipe has recently developed an innovative model that can predict the depletion of alloying elements in HFI-welded joints. » read more
