Steel for safe, strong and durable applications
Steel in industrial applications relies on consistent quality:
- Safety is important in pressure vessels where safe operating pressure is critical
- Strength is crucial in racking and shelving applications where steel can be used to support heavy item storage or allow for higher shelving solutions
- Durability is key to build steel frames for solar panels so they can outlast the panel itself and withstand extreme weather.
Tata Steel’s products for industrial market segments are characterised by an excellent quality-cost ratio helping you succeed in your market. We make steel you can rely on to manufacture your products to the high standards your applications demand. We're ready to help you make your best choices.
Meeting high standards
A number of factors have to be considered when designing pressure vessels and gas bottles. Not only does this include the size and weight of the vessel and bottles and its contents, but also the internal and external forces, temperatures that they will be exposed to, both ambient and operational, stresses, corrosion and much more. Our structural steel for pressure vessels and gas bottles delivers excellent impact toughness and weldability. They are designed to withstand immense internal pressure.
Silos may be subjected to lower pressures, but the strength requirements can be very high. Silos are increasingly designed for cost effectiveness while at the same time providing excellent reliability for their purpose of storing more and more challenging products.
Securing sustainable growth
The solar energy industry is expanding fast. Many homeowners and companies considering solar panels are looking for a product that will both generate energy and offer an aesthetic improvement for their property.
We offer steel for solar panel frames. These light gauge frames form an excellent base for installing solar panels either at ground level or on rooftops. The steel frames offer a solid basis and are designed to last as long as the solar panels and are able to withstand all kinds of weather conditions.
Keeping people safe
In applications like bridges, cladding and protective barriers, commercial vehicles, containers, lifts, offshore installations, shipbuilding, stairs and walkways and steps and safety platforms, our Durbar floorplate offers a safe, economic and competitive solution for flooring. It reduces cost by eliminating the need for separate structural and flooring components. Durbar’s stud pattern creates a slip-resistant surface at all angles.
Durbar is the leading brand of structural steel floor plate, made in the UK for over 50 years – only by Tata Steel. The pattern of diamond studs on genuine Durbar is on average 23% deeper than generic floor plates, with 10% more studs providing outstanding slip resistance.
Meeting international standards
Cold-rolled steel is used to produce steel drums where safety is a key feature when for example storing and shipping hazardous products across the globe. Its strength comes from a tight standardised manufactured material. It is able to withstand outstanding mechanical stresses. Further when it comes to drums, the surface quality of steel has excellent characteristics for painting or lining.
Steel drums are an excellent example in terms of circularity: they are reused multiple times and at end of life, they are recycled, processing them as steel scrap and then transforming them into new steel products.
