With the unique centrifugal casting technology that Akiet has developed the outside of the tubulars sits against the smooth inside of the mould and the resulting outer surface of the tubulars is as smooth as the inner surface of filament wound tubulars. Because of the smooth outside surfaces any handling tools do not damage the surface yet. They have good grip as demonstrated in real applications. For higher loads strain compensated slips ensure a tight and effective grip.
The inner surface of the Akiet tubulars is the result of hundreds of g-forces that are created by spinning the mould. The smoothness reduces friction and gives pressure loss improvements in applications where pumping costs are relevant. Akiets centrifugal casting technique improves production performance and significantly reduces operating costs.
