The pipe division is installed with 2 Galvanising Plants/Lines for/upto 24ft long pipes and balancing equipments like the End Chamfering machine and hydro testing .
Pipe can be supplied in double random length (Upto 42ft, depending upon size) and has facilities for internal de-beading (2” & above) & seam annealing (4” & above). The pipes can be rolled from the minimum thickness of 1.65mm to the maximum thickness of 9.50 mm (depending upon the size). The pipe can be manufactured upto ST52 Grade.
Quality control laboratory is well equipped with modern facilities for testing the chemical, physical and mechanical properties of basic raw material, components and auxiliaries, required for galvanizing & API 5L as also equipment for inspection and testing of pipes.
The list of approval continues to grow in recognisation to company’s commitment to excellence. The API Monogram, BIS Certification, ISO, Approval from all Oil Sector Majors from India are just a few of Lloyd’s Approval.
The Lloyds Metal is the most versatile producer of HFI welded steel API5L pipes serving Oil and Gas, Construction and many other demanding markets.
The company HFI Welded 5Lpipes has current range of ½” – 14” . A commitment to quality is readily visible from the procurement of raw material to the finished product by the way of investment made in sophisticated Computer control technologies that allow the operators to monitor all the critical parameter including welding variables on a real term basis throughout the production cycle.
This capability has been a key factor in acceptance of Lloyds as a unique producer of Welded steel pipe by all Oil sector majors in India like –
- Oil & Natural Gas Corporation Ltd.
- Oil India Ltd.
- Bharat Petroleum Corporation Ltd.
- Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Ltd.
- Chennai Petroleum Corporation Ltd.
- Gas Authority of India Ltd.
CEPC (Continuous Electronic Process Control) & Tracking system:
Lloyd’s Commitment to product reliability begins with precise documentation of raw material and continues through each step of manufacturing to the finished product(s) staged for shipment.
Each and every size, grade and wall thickness of pipe is tracked electronically (by computer) through 10 stages of production. Within the system there exists a wide range of reports available as part of conformance to API and ISO documentation requirements and individual customer’s need.
Beyond material traceability, another vital element of process control is monitoring and controlling critical variables in the welding process itself. It is well recognized that the key to consistent weld quality is the maintenance of proper welding current, line speed, temperature and power. These variables are followed and recorded on a continual basis through the production cycle with proper setting having been established in a rigorous sampling program against an ideal metal flow angle.
Critical Welding variables monitored and controlled:
- Line Speed
- Efficiency K-Factor
- Metal Flow angle
