Phosphate, an element present in all living cells, is a key component of fertilizer and is heavily mined in central Florida, the Western Sahara desert, Morocco, and China. Abrasion-resistant and induction hardened pipe is utilized in the pumping of phosphate in slurry form from the excavation sites to the processing facilities.

When it comes to erosive ware, abrasion-resistant piping systems and components save money by lowering maintenance and repair costs and greatly extending replacement intervals.

For more severe wear, the preferred choice of many abrasion-resistant systems is Edgen Ultra 600. This Induction-hardened pipe exhibits a 600 I.D. brinell that transitions through the wall thickness. It can be cut and welded with proper procedures and typically lasts as much as 6 to 9 times as long as mild steel.  In addition to Edgen Ultra 600Edgen Murray’s extensive selection of induction-hardened products also includes:

  • Straight spools
  • Bands
  • Laterals, tees and Wyes
  • Reducers
  • Customs Fabricators (manifolds, transitions, cleanout spools)


Edgen Murray also maintains a wide assortment of traditional fittings, flanges, weld rings and couplings – all backed by experienced, technical personnel, the latest manufacturing processes and worldwide product support.

  • Large OD [18”; 20”; 22”; 24”] AR pipe – 100’ lengths
  • Large OD [18”; 20”; 22”; 24”] IH pipe – 50‘ lengths
  • A105 150# Forged Steel Flanges
  • Fitting for the above pipe



 The through hardened AR material ranges from 230-280 brinell and maintains significant ductility in the field.  Edgen Murray is a complete AR resource center, capable of providing product in up to 100 ft lengths for:

  • Mining (coal, phosphate, sand & aggregate)
  • Cement
  • Fossil fuel powers plants
  • Pulp and paper
  • Grain handling and transport
  • Steel marking/foundries
