The use of the new unit will result in more efficient quality control of pipes and tubes made of stainless, carbonated, low-alloy and alloyed steels and will enable the company to meet its customers’ additional requirements.

The multi-functional fault detector was designed by Yekaterinburg-based Introtest and proved unique in terms of what pieces of equipment it combines and in terms of how it can process different pipe varieties (ranging in wall width from 0 to 8 mm and in length from 0 to 25,000 mm). The unit meets all the global testing requirements and cost about 15m RUR.

Boiler tubes are mainly purchased by companies in the power plant industry.
