Raccortubi Group manufactures, stocks and supplies piping materials for critical applications such as chemical and petrochemical plants, oil installations, power plants, shipyards, fertiliser plants and offshore platforms.
It provides pipes, tubes, butt weld fittings and flanges in stainless-steel, duplex, superduplex, superaustenitics and nickel alloys from distribution points worldwide.
Raccortubi Group offers solutions from both stock and production for complete project packages, as well as single item necessities, and products in a wide range of diameters and thicknesses.
Butt weld fittings and piping components
Raccortubi Group offers integrated production of butt weld fittings within its distribution network, effectively combining stockholding and manufacturing activities.
The company’s large stock of pipes, fittings and flanges offers its customers added value, as it provides ex-stock material directly to customers and raw material to its internal production facilities. The extensive warehouse dimensions and consistent stock replenishment by Raccortubi Group’s manufacturing plants permit buffer stock for frame agreements. In addition, the complete control over production allows for short timescales due to adaptive planning and flexibility.
Internal quality management
Raccortubi Group’s internal technical specifications have been engineered to guarantee the manufacturing and stockholding of materials in full compliance with the vast majority of end-user requirements in the oil and gas industry. This means that clients can benefit from the off-the-shelf availability of fully tested and certified products without the constraint of additional time and costs for laboratory testing.
The company’s integrated production benefits from its own internal laboratory, which alongside the use of certified base material ensures for the distribution of high-quality butt weld fittings.
Both stockholding and production activities have ISO 9001:2008 certification, while group production facilities have been certified to PED, ASME and NORSOK M-650 Ed. 4 specifications.
Raccortubi Group companies also hold numerous end-user approvals for the most sophisticated fields of application.
Customised testing, cutting and packing services
Raccortubi incorporates years of experience and industry expertise to customise orders based on its client needs.
The company has more than 6,000 products available, as well as a flexible and consistent supply of butt weld fittings from production. In addition, it offers colour coding, cutting, extra testing, special packaging and marking to ensure that it is able to respond to any customer request.
Petrol Raccord hot-formed butt weld fittings manufacturing facility
Acquired by Raccortubi at the end of 2014, Petrol Raccord manufactures butt weld fittings up to 56in almost without wall thickness limitations.
Using the hot forming method, it has the capability to provide elbows, tees, reducers and caps according to strict market requirements. Thanks to its experience and expertise, an increasing part of production is dedicated to special / customised fittings such as flow or barred tees, ‘Y’ pieces, laterals, manifolds and headers.
Petrol Raccord has also obtained quality certification for the nuclear industry.
Tecninox manufacturing facility for cold-formed butt weld fittings
In 1988, Raccortubi established Tecninox, with its integrated manufacturing plant specialising in the production of cold-formed butt weld fittings between 0.5in and 16in in stainless-steel, duplex, superduplex, superaustenitics, nickel alloys and titanium.
Tecninox’s production planning is based on both Raccortubi stock replenishment and specific client orders. Usually customer requests, which include single items and project packages, are fulfilled immediately from stock.
Raw material can also be taken from Raccortubi stock and inserted directly into Tecninox production to respond to customer requirements with short lead times.
