July 4, HBIS delivered its 160 mm 3.5Ni plates to its overseas exclusive high end clients to manufacture for the production of gas compression secondary washing tower of FPSO P79 oil project abroad, successfully filling the domestic blank. 160 mm 3.5Ni plate is currently China’s thickest plate, 10 mm thicker than the existing one, replacing foreign made products.
3.5Ni steel is a type of super low temperature with 3.5% Nickle that owns excellent low temperature ductility, strength and welding capabilities even in temperatures as low as -101 degrees Celsius. It is one major material manufacturing low temperature equipment.
HBIS further promotes the optimization of "two structures", comprehensively enhances the upgrading of technology, increases the R&D input of Ni series steel, and constantly creates "single champion" products to meet the differentiated needs of customers and lead the progress of the industry. In the face of customers' special requirements of product thickness exceeding the standard 10 mm and impact strength of a 1/2 steel plate spot nearly 3 times higher than domestic Q235 carbon structural steel, HBIS has set up a special technical team to develop personalized product development plans for customers. For the actual challenge, the greater thickness the technical difficulty coefficient in steel performance guarantee will be multiply, HBIS team has made deep communication with American bureau of shipping in serval rounds, intensified technology upgrading, researched and developed created solutions, two new technology innovation design, on the basis of the technical indicators leading international standard, at least 15 days shorten delivery cycle, and finally won the customer recognition, obtained the exclusive right to supply steel for the manufacture of gas compression secondary washing tower for foreign projects.
