Particle-accelerator in Geneva, Switzerland

SMST-Tubes: Pipe and Tube to explain the big bang, the universe and all the rest

A concrete tunnel below Geneva, 27 kilometers long and crammed with electronic systems: 70,000 tons of steel, more than nine times the weight of the Eiffel Tower, form this biggest engine in the world.

Within this tunnel, 100 meters below the earth's surface, elementary particles, so called Hadrons, are being accelerated to up to 99% of the speed of light – and subsequently destroyed.

Its name: LHC, Large Hadron Collider. 
We are a part of it – and a very important one.

 

Pipe and Tube by SMST-Tubes

Contributing to a project, that has gained scientific and public attention worldwide, means a lot of responsibility. That is why our products live up to the highest standards.

After almost 25 years of planning this epic project in close cooperation with CERN scientists, our tubes are now running the very core of the LHC:

  • 54 km of Cold Bore Tubes, Grade DMV 316 LN
  • 27 km of tubing service line, Grade DMV 304 L

 
These are the tubes where the actual collisions take place.
Our products couldn't be any closer to the action.
