We are only satisfied when you are
Each customer is unique in its requirements and applications. That is why each one is individually looked after by our experienced team according to his or her wishes.
Our service ranges from electronic certificates documenting the quality, processing, treatment and marking of the pipes to suitable transport packaging with labelling according to customer requirements and transport route. The project and package business naturally also includes the supply of piping accessories such as bends, fittings, flanges, gaskets, and "special products".
Material testing – for lasting quality
A boiler tube remains in use for up to 25 years and more. In order to fulfil the principle of a quality product for the customer with certainty, BARTHEL founded its own materials testing company TPW Prüfzentrum für mechanisch-technologische und metallographische Werkstoffprüfungen (TPW Testing Centre for Mechanical-Technological and Metallographic Materials Testing). Together, BARTHEL and TPW Prüfzentrum - as one of Europe's recognized materials testing companies - are unique in the market.
We have supplemented the range of services offered by TPW Prüfzentrum with non-destructive material tests such as X-ray testing and ultrasound. Here we work with ever smaller but more powerful equipment. In addition, we use the latest technologies such as computer tomography to detect even the smallest defects. And because we want to become constantly better in the field of materials testing, we work together with leading universities.
Mechanical processing: Precision in every detail
BARTHEL has all the adequate technical facilities on site to prepare each boiler tube perfectly. This includes for example:
- Precise sawing of fixed lengths
- End machining
- Weld seam preparation (chamfering)
The mechanical processing allows the respective product to be perfectly integrated into its environment.
Surface treatment: More than you expect
Do you have special requirements in regard to boiler tubes? If needed, we can take over all necessary ancillary work such as surface treatment in the form of rust protection coating or steel gravel rust removal. We offer customized solutions from simple transport protection coating to top coating. Simply select the required paints and layer thicknesses, we'll take care of everything else.
