Sweden-based Sandvik has opened a coiled tubing line for premium grades of seamless stainless steel products in smaller dimensions at its Zhenjiang tube mill near Shanghai. The local production of long lengths of weld-free coiled tubing will enable customers in the Asia Pacific region to receive deliveries within 28 days instead of four to six months for longer-length reels from abroad. Initially the focus will be on Sandvik 3R60 (ASTM TP 316/316L) tubing, an austenitic chromium-nickel steel with a minimum of 2.6 percent molybdenum and low carbon content, in 6.0- to 14-mm ODs. The coiled tube is supplied as level-wound on plastic-wrapped wooden reels in standard (55 to 260 m) or longer (135 to 611 m) lengths, or as bulk coil, strapped into boxes. The company also will supply other grades of high-alloy and duplex tube products in a variety of dimensions, although they may be subject to slightly different delivery times.
