An important area of business has always been the supply of pipes for the construction of platforms for oil and gas production. The requirements for such structures, however, are much more demanding by the very fact that one must search ever deeper. At water depths of up to 4500 m in extreme cases, the focus is now on special features such as resistance to fatigue and collapse.
We address these phenomena by using a new technology developed and patented by Eisenbau Krämer: Impander Technology. Here, there is a demonstrably reduced risk of collapse and fatigue, tensions in the material are reduced, and processing at the circumferential seam welding is significantly improved due to minimal tolerance.
