Improved properties at lower cost in reforming: from HK to HP and much more

Heat-resistant steels dedicated for use above 800°C are mainly composed of chromium (for corrosion resistance purpose), nickel (for creep resistance) and iron. The most widely spread type of steels used for steam reforming applications, where high temperature and high pressure do apply, are from HP family. HP family is composed of various steel grades composed of 25 wt% of chromium and 35 wt% of nickel. Initial HP grade, defined within ASTM A297 has supplanted HK grade decades ago. At…

Always closer to customer needs – 3D dimensional measurement for machined parts

One of the current business development of Manoir Pitres consists in supplying casting pieces at the final machining stage. This further final machining allows our customers to directly assemble their equipment without any additional machining on Manoir Pitres castings. With the aim to check the dimensional conformity of the machined casting (which may have very tight tolerances), Manoir Pitres has invested in 2016 in a coordinate measuring machine. This articulated Romer arm measures few points on the casting in…

Ichtys Project

In 2014, Manoir Pîtres has been awarded the Ichtys project from our client General Electric in Condé, France. We took this opportunity as a challenge regarding the quantity of parts which had different sizes, different complex alloys such as Hastelloy or Inco625 and which were fully machined. Our installations, workforce and experience in such industry led us to a successful delivery and a satisfied customer which is our priority. We are glad to receive pictures of customer’s installation all…

Titanium at Manoir Industries – June 2017
