Leading manufacturer of butt weld fittings, Petrol Raccord perfectly integrates Raccortubi Group production facilities.

Founded in 1969, Petrol Raccord favours the hot-forming production method, according to which raw material must reach a specific temperature to enable forming operations. The consistent investment carried out recently have made manufacturing much more efficient, especially in terms of raw material availability and welding machineries.

Petrol Raccord holds a wide range of raw material such as seamless and welded tubes and pipes, sheets and plates, forged pieces, full rods or bars among which to choose according to the number of pieces to produce, to delivery deadlines and to the final price to offer.

The extensive availability of raw material in sheets and plates in duplex, super duplex and 6mo up to 50mm, and in titanium up to 15mm, allows Petrol Raccord to fulfil deliveries in 4-6 weeks thanks to a dedicated production line called Fast Track.

Petrol Raccord holds a huge stock of duplex, super duplex, 6mo, and titanium sheets up to 50-mm thick, being used to produce seamless and welded fittings up to 56’’ with no thickness limitations.

Using primarily the hot-forming method, it manufactures welded elbows in two halves, tees, reducers and caps to handle all urgent requests, from single-item delivery to complete project supply, while guaranteeing the best performance.

 

Along with this, as a result of its long-standing experience in the industry, Petrol Raccord also supplies carbon and alloy steel butt weld fittings for power plants (P5, P9, P11, P22, P91 and P92).

It can count on the off-the-shelf availability of alloy-steel tubes and pipes destined for power plants to meet advanced deliveries or to supply small lots completing complex projects.

 

The expertise and technical knowledge of people at Petrol Raccord allowed developing a highly specialized production of special fittings according to customer drawing such as flow and barred tees, Y pieces, lateral tees, manifolds and headers.

Standard manufacturing range

Stainless steel & special alloys

Long/short radius elbows:

• seamless 1” (33.4 mm) > 42” (1066.8 mm)

• welded 4” (114.3 mm) > 56” (1422.0 mm)

 

Tees / reducers / caps:

• seamless 1” (33.4 mm) > 56” (1422.0 mm)

• welded 4” (114.3 mm) > 56” (1422.0 mm)

 

NOTES: fittings can be produced in any wall thickness. Welded items can be manufactured with one or two longitudinal welds that are located on the opposite side of the branch for tees and on the neutral axis for elbows. For elbows, the two longitudinal welds are located on the inner and outer radius (intrados and extrados).
