Production of nanoenabled stainless steel pipes and related stamp-welded parts

The portfolio company will produce a wide scale of pipes and stamp-welded parts at modernized and new production facilities of the Chelyabinsk Pipe-Rolling Plant. Production technology incorporates nanostructures in the materials from which the pipes and parts are produced, making them more durable and reliable. For example, seam welding of parts includes titanium and boron whose nanosized junctions contribute significantly to the hardened structure of the goods.

OCTG companies will use Chelpipe’s products to construct long-distance pipelines and to outfit compressor, oil transfer, and pumping stations. The adoption of nanotechnologies in manufacturing will increase the service life of the pipes and related parts and improve operation in important basic industries: oil and gas, nuclear energy, and power engineering.
