OMK Installs High Temperature UTS Testing Machine at Belgorod Plant

Russian pipe maker United Metallurgical Company OMK, a Metal-Expo regular exhibitor, OMK’s Energomash has installed new equipment for tensile testing of metal at elevated temperatures of up to 900 degree Celsius at the central factory laboratory of the Belenergomash in Belgorod region of Russia. Such tests are necessary for product quality control and research in the development of technologies. Investments amounted to more than 18.5 million rubles. The equipment with a capacity of 5 tonnes will complement the four existing similar testing machines that are already operating at the enterprise, and will increase the number of tests carried out. The machine is highly accurate and reproduces the results of tensile tests on a wide range of different materials.

Break tests at elevated temperatures are quite time consuming. They are often subjected to products for the nuclear industry, which is the traditional market of the OMK Belgorod plant. The installation of modern testing equipment will allow not only obtaining results that meet international quality standards, but will also significantly speed up the acceptance and shipment of products to customers.
