Ultrasonic testing facility

Published:  28 October, 2016

SANDVIK has announced it has recently inaugurated a new, state-of-the-art, fully automated ultrasonic testing facility for pipes to the oil and gas industry.

“Seeing this major investment come on-line is a substantial achievement for all involved, and a key milestone in Sandvik’s enhanced strategic focus on demanding applications within the oil and gas industry, such as OCTG (Oil Country Tubular Goods),” said Per Olsson Artberger, Sandvik global product manager for OCTG.

“This new ultrasonic testing facility allows us to increase our capabilities and capacity significantly. Despite the current downturn in the oil and gas market, we see continued good business opportunities for Sandvik material grades, especially in the Middle East and Caspian Sea regions. “
