Superior Tube to showcase its tubing solutions for nuclear applications at SMR Summit 2018

Monday, March 26, 2018

Meet the Superior Tube team on Booth #4

Superior Tube, part of AMETEK Specialty Metal Products, will be exhibiting at the 8th Annual International SMR and Advanced Reactor Summit being held in Atlanta on the 27th and 28th March. Billed as the world’s largest forum for the SMR and advanced reactor industry, this event attracts companies and organisations from across the world looking to develop their deployment and supply chain strategies for the future.

For Superior Tube, it represents an excellent opportunity to demonstrate its expertise in the manufacture of high precision tubes in stainless steel, nickel, titanium and zirconium alloys for key components in the Primary and Turbine Islands. Specific applications include:

  • Heat exchangers
  • Instrumentation tubes for in-core thermocouples
  • Fuel Cans and Cladding tubes
  • Structural Tubes and Grid Sleeves
  • Super heaters and Condensers
  • Fuel cans and Control rods

Together with Fine Tubes, its UK-based sister company, Superior Tube has been involved in the nuclear industry since the 1930s. Our involvement in the supply of tubing for fuel cans for the UK’s AGR programme since the 1970s has led to the development of a comprehensive tubing product range in support of PWR, PHWR, LWR, BWR and FBR reactor technologies.

Both Fine Tubes and Superior Tube work with the world’s most prominent nuclear reactor suppliers and develop tubular products for both new builds and maintenance projects globally, including the UK, France, China, Canada and the US.

We support customers from the earliest stages of design engineering for new builds, plant maintenance and global life extension projects. Most recently, Fine Tubes and Superior Tube have been heavily involved in responding to the new specifications created by developments such as the Small Modular Reactor (SMR).
