Resumen:
Una empresa italiana del sector mecánico ha desarrollado un nuevo sistema de fabricación de tubos de acero revestido para el transporte de fluidos altamente corrosivos debajo del mar, en particular, para la producción/transporte offshore de petróleo y gas. Los tubos se construyen ensamblando un tubo dentro de otro: un tubo de acero al carbono resistente al estrés mecánico en el exterior y un tubo de acero inoxidable u otro material resistente a la corrosión en el interior. Debido a un cambio en la política corporativa, más orientada hacia aplicaciones de energía renovable, la empresa está interesada en vender la línea de producción. Por este motivo, busca un fabricante de tubos que quiera adquirir la tecnología mediante un acuerdo comercial con asistencia técnica.

Tittle:
Innovative technology for the production of lined steel pipes suitable for oil extraction and transport
Summary:
A leading Italian company operating in the mechanical sector has set up an innovative production system for manufacturing lined pipes to allow for highly corrosive fluids to be moved undersea, in particular for offshore production/transport of oil-Y-gas.
Due to a change of corporate policy, the Italian company is now available to sell the whole production line; therefore it is looking for a pipe producer wishing to acquire the technology within a Commercial agreement with technical assistance.
Description:
Considering the increase in demand for coated pipes for offshore applications, an Italian company, leader in the production of stainless steel products and components, decided to research and develop its own innovative production system for manufacturing lined pipes to allow for highly corrosive fluids to be moved undersea. The lined pipes are constructed by assembling two pipes, one inside the other: a carbon steel pipe that is resistant to mechanical stress is on the outside; the interior, however, features a stainless steel pipe, or one made from a similarly corrosion resistant material. The line is designed for pipes with the following characteristics:
· exterior diameter between 219 and 508 mm,
· total thickness between 21 and 41 mm,
· length between 11 and 12.5 m.
Due to a corporate political/business decision more oriented towards renewable energy applications, the company decided to no longer operate this sector; this is why it is available to sell the ownership of the whole technology and related production line. The partner sought is a pipe producer wishing to strengthen its market position in this promising sector.
Within a Commercial agreement with technical assistance, the Italian company ensures the complete transfer of all the technological information concerning the line and product set-up.
Advantages and Innovations:
The advantages of the proposed system over the current hydraulic lining system on the market are as follows:
· The mechanical expansion achieved, free from the containment mould to hydraulically expand the pipes, allows for the two pipes to be adhered to one another perfectly, regardless of local differences in their diameter or ovalization. This is because the circumference of the pipe is measured before every mechanical expansion step and then controlled expansion is performed with decimal tolerance. This is why carbon steel pipes with standard tolerances on their diameter can be used.
· The designed system permits considerable flexibility in pipe version changeover, as the time required to change the product, with one person, is 1-2 hours, compared to the 5-8 hours required by a team of at least 3 mechanical technicians.
· Initial investment is 4/5 times lower than that needed to make the same products with a traditional system, due to the lack of large containment moulds and counter-moulds required for the expansion of pipes of up to 12 m. Small amount of space required for the entire system (approximately 150 m2 ).
· The productivity of the proposed system is 3 pipes/hour, the same as traditional systems.
· environmentally-friendly line due to the absence of grease in the mechanical expander. In fact, by using special slides, the mechanical expansion does not require lubricants.
