James Alloys slash delivery times on specialist metals for Asian oil and gas industry

United Arab Emirates: Sunday, September 02 - 2012 @ 10:41

One such product is of particular interest to the subsea industry. Nickel chromium alloy 625, containing Molybdenum, can be used in high load marine, subsea and chemical environments. It comes with toughened anti-corrosion properties which are particularly resistant to crevice corrosion and has a 100 year service life.

An outstanding strength to weight ratio is provided by the titanium alloy which has exceptional resistance to corrosion from salt water, acid, alkalis and harsh industrial chemicals.

Before reaching an agreement with a major European mill, the Manchester based company followed an industry standard delivery time of six months on banding, clips, installation and tooling supplies.

Managing director Mark Catlow said, “There is an increasing demand from the oil & gas industry for high specification banding systems provided in as short a timescale as possible. Over the past 12 months we have seen a dramatic surge in orders from the Middle East and we are now experiencing a similar increase from operators in the North Sea. This can lead to increased waiting times on orders and ultimately delays to projects.”

“The ability to supply the same high quality products in a shorter time frame will give companies a competitive edge in terms of fulfilling customer requirements more quickly,” he added.

James Alloys Ltd has over 50 years experience in delivering a full range of long and flat products, slit coils and special sections in addition to a comprehensive range of pipes, tubes and fittings in any grade or alloy.

Products include the very high strength nickel chromium alloy 625, titanium alloy and stainless steel grade 316.

The company offers products in the raw or finished conditions, delivered to any location at competitive rates. It also provides a comprehensive range of processing and fabrication services to enable a complete metal solution from raw material to a cut, fabricated, welded and finished product.
