Research & Development

EUROPIPE sets standards

We work every day to reaffirm our leadership in technology. Thus cooperation with various renowned research institutes such as the Salzgitter Mannesmann Forschungsinstitut is a matter of course. Our product development is based on market analyses as well as customer specifications and expectations – and on our own ideas and requirements too, of course.

High-strength Steel X80 and X100

We secure the development of all mechanical properties of pipes taking various design criteria into consideration. The objective is always the safe use of our pipes on challenging conditions.

Heavy-wall pipes

We are constantly improving the mechanical and technological properties as well as the geometry of our pipes for the extreme requirements of deep-sea usage, running extensive additional tests on resistance to collapse.

Pipelines for Sour Gas Service

Pipes for sour gases are always customised to each application. Whatever these requirements are – from a high proportion of H2S to slightly sour gases – for our customers we always achieve the best mechanical and corrosion-protective combinations of properties.

The development of X70 pipes for usage with sour materials is another of our fields of research.

Process Development

To us, process development means a continuous enhancement of production processes and further development of manufacturing, inspection and information technologies. With the know-how we gain by our research, we systematically invest into both existing and new facilities.
