Material Description
Sandvik Safurex Sandvik Safurex is a patented, highly corrosion resistant material developed for the Stamicarbon process. It is designed to enable an oxygenless process that increases output and safety.
Sandvik 2RE69 Sandvik 2RE69 ("25.22.2") is developed specifically for the most severe conditions in the urea production process. It is a special high-alloy grade with a very low or zero ferrite content
Sandvik bimetallic tubing* Sandvik bimetallic tubing consists of an outer component of Sandvik 2RE69 and an inner component of Zirconium 702, resulting in superior corrosion resistance, strength and weldability.
