New Milestone For Tecnar: Borusan Pipe Adopts Lut 2.0 For Pioneering Online Measurement Of Hot-Welded Pipe Eccentricity


Saint-Bruno-de-Montarville, Québec, March 07, 2024 — Tecnar, a leading innovator of industrial solutions, is pleased to announce that Borusan Pipe has chosen the Lut 2.0 SPS (Single Probe Scanning System) for its online wall thickness gauge. This state-of-the-art technology will measure hot welded pipe eccentricity online at Borusan Pipe’s Gemlik plant in Turkey. This industry milestone introduces the Lut technology to welded pipe production.

Scheduled for start-up in late 2024, the Lut 2.0 SPS will be strategically placed at the outlet of the stretch-reducing mill (SRM), after the cutting saw. Traditionally, the Lut has been pivotal to monitoring and correcting eccentricity in seamless steel pipe production, but now it will tackle the challenges of continuous longitudinal welded pipe production (ERW). The Lut 2.0’s radial profile of hot pipes will detail key insights for enhanced process control.

The Borusan Pipe Gemlik plant is committed to process optimization and pipe quality improvement. It joined forces with Tecnar to capitalize on their shared expertise in data analysis and evaluating pipe wall thickness characteristics. Now, this groundbreaking application of the Lut technology takes this collaboration to a whole new level. Their joint venture exemplifies commitment to innovation, efficiency, and the highest standards of quality in the steel pipe manufacturing industry. As the project is poised to launch, both companies are looking forward to seeing how the Lut will advance the capabilities and precision of welded pipe production.
