Welspun Changes, But Keeps Focus On Line Pipe

March 2014, Vol. 241 No. 3

Welspun, the India-based corporation, made a key decision to build a line pipe mill in the state of Arkansas during the midst of the Great Recession. It was a gamble, but one predicated on the belief that the American shale industry was about to boom and they would be centrally located.

Part 2: Low Temperature Ductility And Ductile Crack Arrest Properties Of High Strength Low Alloy Steel

January 2011 Vol. 238 No. 1

We stated in Part 1 of this two-part series that one of the most critical decisions in pipeline design is the quality of steel. We also discussed the importance of steel quality in terms of the quality of pipe. Pipe, after all, is a dimensional aspect of material and, for this discussion, the material is steel. The discussion on steel making especially focused on low-temperature ductility and steel’s ability to resist initiation and arrest of ductile cracks.
