TMK to Modernize Equipment for Heat Treatment of Pipes at PNTZ

Russian Pipe Metallurgical Company TMK, a Metal-Expo regular exhibitor, will allocate more than RUB 500 million to modernize equipment for heat treatment of pipes at TMK's Pervouralsk New Pipe Plant, which will allow the company to reduce resource consumption and expand the range of high-tech products.

As part of the first stage of technical re-equipment, the company has already modernized a roller kiln in one of the pipe drawing shops. The introduction of new advanced technologies allowed, in particular, to lower the lower limit of the temperature range in the furnace by 200 degrees. This makes it possible to manufacture new types of products with the necessary mechanical properties in accordance with Russian and European quality standards: ball-bearing, precision and other pipes, including those for the aviation, space and automotive industries.

Also, as part of the modernization, the furnace was equipped with a new digital process control system, which provides comprehensive diagnostics of equipment operation and automatic temperature control. During 2021, PNTZ plans to modernize two more furnaces in the pipe-drawing shops of the enterprise.
