LGE has a wide range in the production of hot rolled seamless pipe . Before being transformed into pipe the blooms are heated a rotary furnace to temperatures close to 1350c . The blooms are processed through a piercing press and an elongator mill to produce a thick wall tubular hollow. The pipe is then rolled on a pilger mill. By this stage the pipe has taken ona diameter andawall thickness close to that of the finished product , subsequently , a sizing mill rolls the pipe to its final diameter. LGE uses a fully automated pilger rolling mill, whit production capacity of 120,000 tons per year.
Seamless steel pipe hot rolled using the pilger rolling process.
