SC lance pipe 5

Proper handling of Daiwa SC Lance is crucial for ensuring their quality during transportation. However, customers often lack awareness of their shape and weight characteristics, making this oxygen lance pipe challenging for them to handle correctly. Moreover, the knowledge of the right devanning may not be recognized and unloading techniques for these long and bulky products, nor how to store them correctly to protect their surfaces in different conditions. Therefore, in this blog we are going to show you the product's characteristics, packaging methods, and necessary precautions, they can handle SC Lance with confidence and ensure its safe transportation.

Daiwa SC Lance Pipe as General Oxygen Injection Pipe

The Daiwa SC Lance pipes are essential oxygen injection pipes that are made from high-quality mild steel. These pipes are constructed using hot-rolled steel sheets and welded using a high-frequency machine, making them versatile and reliable for various industrial and engineering applications. They are commonly used for opening tap holes, removing slag, and cleaning in steel manufacturing. Additionally, these pipes are free from any grease or oil covering, ensuring their quality and reliability during transportation.

  • Blue Sheet / Transparent Sheet (Polyethylene Protection Cover Sheet): Polyethylene plastic sheets are the preferred choice in engineering due to their ease of manufacturing and weldability. Not only do they possess high mechanical properties and excellent chemical resistance, but they also exhibit low wear and exceptional impact strength.

Shipping Method for Daiwa Oxygen Lance Pipes

Daiwa Lance employs an eco-friendly shipping method with a wide global reach, enabling easy delivery worldwide. Ocean freight shipping is an environmentally benign mode of transportation, favored by major freight forwarding firms in same production areas due to its low carbon footprint. However, marine transportation poses several challenges that can cause cargo breakage. The most common culprit is water, which can result from high moisture levels or temperature variations during transit, leading to condensation and leaks.

  • Condensation brought by high moisture levels or temperature variations while in transit.
  • Water leakages as a result of holes or cracks in a unit load.
  • Improper loading and unloading techniques or sealing.

During shipping, there are cases of dropping the bundle to the ground and it causes damage to those oxygen lance pipes. Improper stowage or mishandling could occur when:
  • The cargo is delivered to the CFS yard where terminal operators take care of vanning.
  • The cargo is loaded or unloaded at the transit port.
  • The cargo was de-vanned at the destination by port workers.

Unloading Daiwa Lance Pipes Bundles without Damages


When it comes to shipping, heavy-duty packing solutions are essential to prevent damages. Loading and unloading from one container to another can be hazardous and cause significant harm to the products. If the oxygen lance pipe requires a thread or socket portion, protection becomes even more critical as customers use the lance pipe to connect two pieces together and ensure sufficient distance from hot melted iron. Therefore, we highly recommend fully metal-covered packing in such cases to ensure the safety and quality of the product during transit.

We suggest our customers should use a forklift tool: to balance the bundle while loading the oxygen lance pipe into the container, we design and use this tool for easy operating safety.

Proper handling of Daiwa SC Lance is paramount to protect their quality during transportation. Due to their unique shape and weight characteristics, customers may find it challenging to handle these oxygen lance pipes correctly. Moreover, customers may not recognize the right devanning and unloading techniques for these long and bulky products or how to store them properly to safeguard their surfaces in different conditions.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the handling of Daiwa SC Lance, our sales department and agents are always available to assist you. We are committed to providing our customers with the best service possible and ensuring that they can transport our oxygen lance pipes safely and confidently.
