Ultra Tech Pipe Product Guide


INDUCTION-HARDENED PIPE SAVES 9,631 TONS OF CO2 EMISSIONS A leading Canadian mining company is preparing to order 37,000 feet of 8 NPS Sch80 Ultra Tech 600 induction-hardened (IH) pipe, which can last 4 to 6 times longer than mild steel. The energy required to produce this amount of UT 600 is 4,601,965 kWh. The same length of mild steel would need to be produced 5 times (21,071,269 kWh) to match the operational useful life of the Ultra Tech 600 pipe. The difference in energy saved (16.46M kWh) results in a reduction of 9,631 tons in CO2 emissions.*
