UrBC, Yekaterinburg, February 19, 2019. EVRAZ Consolidated West-Siberian Metallurgical Plant (EVRAZ ZSMK) Testing Center got its rail-testing license renewed by Russia’s Federal Accreditation Service; this means the plant can now carry out all kinds of certification tests on its own site, with the exception of bench trials and field tests.

According to the company’s press service, they can keep on testing the rails for geometrical dimensions, surface quality, alignment, chemical composition, mechanical properties, macro- and microstructure, and residual stress in the rail web. EVRAZ ZSMK also got a license to do certain new tests on switch point rails after a new GOST standard had been adopted.

Additionally, the plant got certified by AAC Analitica and is now allowed to test the rails made to meet EU and U.S. standards.

EVRAZ ZSMK Testing Center has been operating since 2004 and is currently one of Russia’s four centers that do certification tests on rails.
