TMK manufactures a wide range of line pipe for onshore and offshore applications. Line pipe is
available in sizes ranging from 0.500 to 100 inches and can be produced by seamless, ERW, SAWL
and SAWH methods according to API Spec 5L, CSA, DIN EN, BS EN and DNV standards.
In 2008, TMK launched a 650,000 tpa Haeusler RB(E) SAWL pipe mill at our Volzhsky plant
(Russia) that is certified according to DNV-OSS-313. Operating its own coating facilities, pipes
can be supplied with 3-layer FBE or PE external and internal coating. The pipe is inspected
for internal and external defects using automated electromagnetic and ultrasonic inspection
equipment. Pipe ends undergo magnetic-fluoroscopic detection after beveling. For wall
thicknesses exceeding 16 mm, ends can be double beveled. The pipe also undergoes tensile,
flattening and hydrostatic testing. The pipe is automatically packed in bundles and tied with
steel banding or wires in compliance with API loading and transportation standards.
