Centravis, a leading global supplier of high quality solutions in the segment of seamless stainless tubes, has received VdTUV 418 certification, confirming the company’s steel duplex tubes are being produced in accordance with German industrial standards.

According to Centravis, this certification will ensure a 45% increase in the sale of duplex tubes in the German market, as compared to 2014.

“Obtaining the TÜV Rheinland Group certificate will strengthen the company’s position with regards to supply of duplex steel tubes to Germany, where the company’s products are in high demand,” said head of Centravis sales Germany, Nicholai Rosenthal.

“Furthermore, VdTUV 418 certification validates yet again the quality of Centravis products, especially those made of duplex steel grades.”

In addition to Germany, Centravis is also developing at the Scandinavian market. In August 2015, Centravis received Norsok M-650 (qualification Norsok M-630, Edition 6) certification from independent inspection company Ztrong Partner AS for the hot pipe production of tubes made of duplex and super duplex steel grades.

In September, similar approval was obtained for the production of duplex and super duplex cold-deformed pipes.
