TMK Ships Cold Worked Seamless Pipes to EU Countries
Russian Pipe Metallurgical Company TMK’s subsidiary Pervouralsk Novotrubny Zavod has shipped new high-tech tubular products to customers in the European Union for mechanical engineering, hydraulics, as well as car and car construction. Seamless cold worked steel pipes are manufactured according to European standard EN 10305-1.
A new type of high-precision pipes with a minimum tolerance for the outer and inner diameters of +/- 0.08 mm is characterized by high surface quality, a wide range of sizes, guaranteed mechanical and technological characteristics. For the production of products, PNTZ adjusted the technology of pipe production, as well as the manufacture and selection of drawing tools. In addition, the technology of applying a conservation coating has been improved, which protects the pipe surface from corrosion during transportation and storage. PNTZ plans to produce up to 200 tons of such pipes per year.
