TMK ChelPipe Starts Advanced Gas Cleaning Equipment
Russian Pipe Metallurgical Company TMK’s Chelyabinsk Pipe-Rolling Plant has implemented the first stage of the project for the implementation and reconstruction of gas cleaning equipment. A new unit was put into operation at the enterprise, which allows cleaning up to six million cubic meters of polluted air annually with a purification factor of 99.9%. The gas cleaning plant of large-diameter plasma cutting machines is equipped with 32 filter membrane elements and cleans the air from suspended particles, dust and gas-air mixtures that have an impact on the environment.
By the end of 2022, modern gas cleaning equipment will be installed at two more ChTPZ pipe rolling plants. The total investment in the project until 2024 will amount to more than 180 million ruble
ChTPZ was one of the first industrial enterprises in Chelyabinsk to take the initiative to install and reconstruct gas cleaning equipment for capturing and removing suspended particles, dust and gas-air mixtures. The modernization project is being implemented within the framework of a quadripartite agreement signed by the enterprise with the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment of the Russian Federation, the Federal Service for Supervision of Natural Resources and the government of the Chelyabinsk Region. This initiative is included in the list of measures of the plan to reduce emissions of pollutants into the atmospheric air of the city of Chelyabinsk, approved in accordance with the federal project "Clean Air".
