A France branch company in Nigeria demanded TP316 stainless steel seamless pipes in high quality. They requested all TP316 stainless steel pipe 6” to be strictly according to ASTM A312 standard. The company purchased 316 stainless pipes from China long time ago, but they got bad quality.
|ASTM A312 TP316 STAINLESS STEEL SEAMLESS PIPE BE ASME B36.10 6INCH X SCH. STD X Length 8000MM|
316 Stainless steel seamless pipes they purchased from other supplier couldn’t meet the requirement, because previous TP316 stainless steel seamless pipe only contained 10% Nickel, and the wall thickness tolerance exceed the requirement of ASTM standard. Beside this, the wall thickness was not uneven. So the company got big loss from last project.

This time, they purchased TP316seamless stainless steel 6” from Sheye Metal. They request SGS to inspect these pipes and EN10204 3.2 certificate issued by SGS in necessary.
Sheye Metal has rich experience in manufacturing TP316 stainless steel seamless pipe, all 6” stainless steel pipes are made according to ASTM A312-2015. European company has a very strict requirement to chemical composition of TP316 stainless steel seamless pipes. Many suppliers in China may only supply 10% Nickel TP316 stainless pipes, actually it is not qualified. Under ASTM A312 standard, TP316 welded pipes can contain only 10% Nickel. However, TP316 seamless pipes are requested to contain more than 11% Nickel. Many suppliers omit the point.
