  • Tubes - HFI pipe

    Our HFI line pipe is available in diameters from 2 to 20 inches. Because it's manufactured using steel coil from our South Wales mills, we have total control of the supply chain, ensuring we can comply with even the tightest project schedules, and enabling you to gain a quicker return on investment.

    • High Frequency Induction (HFI) pipe for reel lay

      Manufactured to the highest standards, using high quality coil pipeline steel from our own mills in South Wales, our HFI pipe is widely used for onshore and offshore pipelines in diameters up to 20 inches.

    Overview

     

    Excellent welding rates

    Our high frequency induction (HFI) pipe benefits from stringent dimensional control of both shape and thickness - ensuring excellent welding rates for onshore and, critically, offshore installation. We supply HFI pipe in:

    • sizes from 2 inches to 20 inches in diameter
    • strength grades up to API 5L X70

    Fully tested for product confidence

    Total product confidence is ensured through an extensive programme of testing including:

    • toughness to 40 Joules minimum at -20°C
    • non-destructive testing
    • hydro-testing

    Complete package for customer benefits

    HFI pipe comes from our fully integrated supply chain - from steel manufacture through pipe forming and coating services. Our portfolio offering extends to:

    • anti-corrosion coatings
    • insulation coatings
    • concrete weight coatings
    • ancillary products such as induction bends and anodes

    We offer a complete pipeline package, sourcing from approved third party suppliers including other welded processes and seamless linepipe. This can help you to:

    • reduce your contractual complexity
    • manage your long-lead item risks
