At the Chelyabinsk Pipe Rolling Plant launched the second phase of the project "Ceramic flux." Commissioning of the new plant is scheduled for September 2011.
Power Land — 7,000 tons per year.
General supplier of equipment, installation of which is scheduled for May of this year, will make the company «HAZ Sweden» (Sweden). Total investment in the project will amount to approximately 650 million rubles.
The first phase of the project "Ceramic flux" on CTRP capacity of 7,200 tons was put into operation in December 2004. Launch of a unique manufacturing ceramic flux allowed CTRP improve the quality of their products, to become the country's first manufacturer and supplier in demand on the Russian market of raw materials.
The second phase of "ceramics" provides for the development of technical capabilities of current production and application of innovative solutions, in particular — the use of direct-fired rotary kiln dryer instead of air-fountain. This will significantly improve the technical properties of the product.
Commissioning of the new plant is due to the increasing demands for quality pipe products and its components, including — to the ceramic flux used for welding large diameter pipes. After the launch of the "Ceramic flux-2" CHEP will be one of Europe's most powerful producers of ceramic flux.
