Key Points of the Project

Raaj Tubes is proud to have partnered with the prestigious Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC) on a groundbreaking project. This project involved the replacement of carbon steel cladded with stainless steel with entirely stainless steel construction. This marks the first time that stainless steel hollow sections have been used at BARC.

  • Material Upgrade: Entire structure transitioned from carbon steel cladded with stainless steel to 100% stainless steel for superior corrosion resistance and extended lifespan.
  • Hollow Section Innovation: Raaj Tubes utilized hollow sections in various sizes to achieve the desired strength and weight specifications, optimizing material usage and overall efficiency.
  • Corrosion-Free Performance: The stainless steel construction ensures a corrosion-free life below 22 mpy, significantly reducing maintenance requirements and extending the structure’s lifespan.
  • Faster Installation: The switch to stainless steel hollow sections resulted in a 4-month reduction in installation time compared to traditional methods.
  • Pioneering Application: Raaj Tubes’ expertise and innovative use of stainless steel hollow sections paved the way for their first-time implementation at BARC, setting a new standard for future projects.
