We were excited to sponsor and see everyone at #DFI47, October 4-7, in National Harbor, Maryland. After a two-year delay, the event was an overwhelming success. It was great to connect with everyone at the Gaylord National Hotel. Thank you, Deep Foundations Institute.
Lally Pipe & Tube is proud to be one of the largest recyclers in the world. Just like using waste vegetable cooking oil to run vehicles, we solved one of the biggest pollution problems for domestic tubular producers and the environment. The mills’ problem centered on what to do with the large quantities of secondary tubular products considered a “by-product” or “production scrap.”
FYI, reclaimed steel casing from decommissioned oil wells can be up to 50 years old or older. Some sellers of this material wrongly describe this used material as “Surplus.” If you purchase “Surplus” material, require the seller to certify the material as “New,” since by definition, “Surplus” material has never been “Used.”
