Working In Hell

Posted on March 15, 2011 by team

This tour will take you to two very hot workplaces – tube-rolling plant and steel works in Kazakhstan.

Pavlodar tube-rolling plant is situated in Pavlodar, Kazakhstan. The tubes, manufactured here, are used in gas pipelines, water supply systems, heating, sewage, different boiler installations, irrigation systems and many other things. The blanks for the plant are supplied by Pavlodar steel works.

Pipe manufacturing process consists of the following stages: hot rolling, where blank gets cut, heated and rolled till it becomes of the needed size and form.

Then, if needed, the pipe undergoes heat treatment or just goes to the quality testing line.

Carousel heating furnace where the materials get heated as evenly as possible.

Oblique-roll fabrication mill that turns blanks into tubular billets.

It is the very heart of the plant – heat rolling mill. Then there goes extracting mill that turns 3-meter long tubular billets into 28-meter pipes.

Then there is reheating furnace, reducing mill and cooling table.

The plant’s rated capacity is 100 000 tons per year.

The blanks for the plant are supplied by the neighbor – Pavlodar steel works.
