ChTZ receives Byelorussian equipment

January 28, 2015. Three vans full of new equipment arrived at ChTZ Uraltrac (a member enterprise of Uralvagonzavod Corporation); these were spare parts for the modern dipping unit from Byelorussia, the corporation’s press service reports.

‘This was the last delivery, but not the first one. The plant already received a number of wash tanks at the end of fall, and now we have a spin drier, a boiler, mixing taps, screens, and a platform,’ the press service says.

The dipping unit is meant for polishing small defects on the castings. A special compound with liquid silica for the primary ingredient can coat any part, be it made from pig iron, steel, or aluminum. This makes elimination of all the hidden defects possible.

The plant launched a similar dipping unit at the experimental casting department last year, and this unit is still in working order. However, it was actually made by the plant workers from scratch. Now the new line was designed by experts from a Byelorussian scientific research institute and was tried out successfully by quite a few Byelorussian plants. For one, Minsk Engine Plant, which was visited by ChTZ experts prior to order placement, provided good feedback on the product.
