Industrial and Nuclear Tubes

We supply a range of rod and tubing products for use in industrial and nuclear applications. This includes a range a complex Titanium alloys, Stainless and Duplex steels, Zirconium and Zirconium alloy tubes, Zircaloy nuclear fuel tubes. All products are manufactured to the most exacting standards and customer specifications.

Titanium and Titanium Alloy

We can offer the manufacture of pure titanium seamless pipe and tube, along with some of the most complex Titanium alloys on the market. These tubes find application in instrumentation, heat exchanger and high pressure piping and are used in the nuclear, aerospace, refining, petrochemical industries all around the world. We have the required equipment to ensure precise production and high quality control and our flexibility allows us to produce any quantity, large or small.

Duplex and Stainless Steel

We offer the manufacture of seamless pipe for the processing industries where critical services require both mechanical performance and corrosion prevention.The pipe is heat treated in bright annealing furnaces. We export worldwide and our main applications are for condensers, pressure containers, instrumentation, etc. Apart from austenitic stainless steel pipe Aircraft Materials is able to offer the manufacture of ferritic and duplex stainless pipe. We consider flexibility to be an important delivery feature. Small or large quantities can be supplied on a quick delivery schedule.

Zirconium and Zirconium Alloys

We are able to offer the manufacture of Zirconium tubes and Zirconium alloy tubes. Zirconium alloys have 95.5% to 99.2% Zirconium with a maximum Hafnium content of 4.5%. These alloys feature excellent resistance to corrosion. Zr702 is commercially pure Zirconium and Zr705 is alloyed Zirconium with Niobium to increase tensile and yield strength.

Alloy 690 and Alloy 800

We are able to offer the manufacture of Alloy 800 and Alloy 690 tubes to the highest international technical standards and requirements.In addition, we also have the ability to bend nickel alloy tubes up to 35mtrs long for nuclear steam generators.These tubes have tight dimensional uniformity, internal and external roughness control and extremely low noise level (high signal/noise ratio). They are cold rolled and annealed in a bright annealing controlled environment.Alloy 800 pipes can be delivered stress relieved and air cooled or quickly cooled in a controlled environment. Alloy 690 tubes are delivered under bright annealed condition and final vacuum heat treatment for stress relief and carbide precipitation.

Nuclear fuel tubes

We are able to offer the manufacture of Zircaloy nuclear fuel tubes for nucleur fuel bundles used in CANDU heavy water reactors. We offer a fully comprehensive and integrated manufacturing process beginning with Zirconium sponge all the way through to complex components such as fuel tubes, pressure tubes and calandria tubes.

Zirconium Alloy rolled and forged billets

We are able to offer a range of Zirconium alloys, manufactured as rolled and forged billets, as well as ingots.
