Five PQF® plants for TPCO

SMS group received five orders for PQF® seamless tube mills from TPCO in ten years.

Our longstanding customer TPCO America Corporation in Corpus Christi, Texas (USA), placed an order with SMS group for a new 10 3/4" tube mill with PQF® BCO-type rolling technology. Once completed, the plant will produce oil country tubular goods (OCTG) for the region's crude oil and natural gas industry. This is our fifth PQF® plant for this customer - TPCO already operates ACO and LCO-type PQF® plants in China.

The latest 10 3/4" PQF® plant is designed for a maximum capacity of 534,000 tpy, with a maximum tube diameter of 273.1 mm. Here are some of the core components supplied by SMS group:

  • Cone-type piercer 
  • PQF® mill
  • Extracting mill
  • Sizing mill

Included in our supply scope are the mechanical equipment, technology and automation systems, project management, and supervision of both erection and commissioning.
