With versatile industry knowledge and experience in both welded and seamless pipe production, Ruhr Montan Group can deliver specialized technical and industrial expertise for all types of pipemaking processes and facilities.

Pipemaking Consultancy

As the technological progress in welded pipe production moves ahead, they are now
deemed to be of almost identical quality to their seamless counterparts when it comes to strength, toughness, and reliability. Our acumen involves both JCO and UCE forming methods for LSAW large diameter pipe manufacturing. RMG has the expertise to help you develop a variety of welded pipes including the following:

  • Electric Resistance Welded Pipe (ERW)
  • High-Frequency Induction Welded Pipe (HFIW)
  • Longitudinal Submerged Arc Welded Pipe
  • Helical or Spiral Submerged Arc Welded Pipe (HSAW)

Apart from that, we also have the expertise and experience in seamless pipe
manufacturing space that is used in applications where high operating pressures need to be managed such as petrochemical, oil and gas, chemical, and construction industries. Our expertise includes:

  • Mechanical pipe
  • Line pipe
  • Oil Country Tubular Goods Pipe (OCTG)
    • Tubing and casting
    • Drill pipe

Apart from the primary pipemaking equipment, we can provide professional
recommendations on tube and pipe finishing lines including:

  • Surface coating
  • Pipe bending
  • Coupling make-up
  • Heat treatment facilities
  • Pipe threading and coupling lines

The selection of welded or seamless pipe for a certain application usually depends on required pipe tolerances and dimensions. Rigorous quality assurance must be ensured for both welded and seamless pipes to comply with applicable certification benchmarks along with versatile client needs determined by their unique applications. To accomplish this, a number of Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) procedures is used including:

  • Magnetic Particle Inspection (MPI)
  • Electromagnetic Inspection (EMI)
  • Hydrostatic testing
  • X-ray inspection
  • Ultrasonic testing
  • Drift testing
  • Physical measurement and visual inspection
  • Fluoroscopy inspection

Our expertise and experience in the steel industry enable us to provide precise and actionable recommendations for selecting the most adequate process route apart from the required testing and finishing facilities to meet or exceed your customer needs. For your existing pipemaking systems, we have the capability to deliver tailored strategies that can allow you to ensure waste reduction, improve financial efficiencies, and optimize operations.
