Expert solutions for mining explorations
Our pipe product strategy in the mining industry sector is defined by a thorough market analysis and investigation of our clients’ needs.
Interpipe products are used in mining explorations. Considering these applications, Interpipe supplies seamless tubes for engineering purposes, in which weight control and high stress resistance are the critical factors. These types of tubes have high-performance steel characteristics, ensured by heat treatment. Our products are used for applications where the ratio between mass and space occupied is especially critical.
Pipe products for the mining industry
Interpipe products are tailored to meet specific mining industry project needs. Pipe production includes coating, beveling and profiling. Our cold-drawn seamless precision steel tubes, designed for powered roof supports and hydraulic pit props, have an outside diameter from 34mm to 170mm and wall thickness from 3.5mm to 16mm. Pipes are supplied with a 3.1. inspection certificate, in conformity with EN 10204.
To ensure the quality of our pipe products for the mining industry, we test each pipe using high-integrity non-destructive testing techniques.
Pipe product protection and marking
Our pipes for mining technologies are supplied with markings in accordance with regulatory standards and customer requests.
Marking is painted and/or hard stenciled on pipe ends. The same data, as well as any additional information required by the customer, is indicated on the bundle tags. All pipes are supplied black, bare and oiled internally and externally. Pipes ends can be protected with plastic caps upon request.
