Improvements to Competitive Processes

Fontijne Grotnes can upgrade competitors’ Pipe Expanders by installing a recently developed straightening system that will improve the straightness of the pipe in all directions, where other systems only control straightness in the plane of the weld-seam. Tolerances for ovality and straightness of pipes are becoming increasingly important to the later laying of pipes in the field. This also applies when pipe sections are cut in the field as the pipes are sized over their full length.
Fontijne Grotnes successfully improved the horn and drawbar system with the patented connections with cylinder and expander head. When the horn and drawbar of Full Length Pipe Expanders from other suppliers frequently breaks, Fontijne Grotnes can improve the liability of the Full Length Pipe Expander by replacing the drawbar with our patented connection system.
