CENTRAVIS enters the US boiler market
CENTRAVIS, the world’s leading supplier of high-quality seamless stainless tubes & pipes, received conditional approval from Southern Company for supply of stainless tubing for pressure part fabrication. The approval is the result of careful analysis of CENTRAVIS`s 304H and 316H steel grades.
Conditional approval was granted on the basis of samples analysis. Now the company plans to ship the tubes of TP304H TP347H steel grades for the customer’s current projects, after which it is expected to receive the final approval of Southern Company.
