According to PRW.com, ZAO Tehstroi in Kazan Russia has ordered an extrusion line from Battenfeld-Cincinnati for the production of high-pressure pipes of up to 1,600 mm in diameter. It will be installed and start operations in early 2011.

The Austrian machinery maker said this will virtually double Tehstroi’s production capacity, and also extend the overall range of pipes produced for the Russian market in Russia. It said this will be the first extrusion line in Russia to manufacture HDPE high-pressure pipes with diameters ranging from 800 to 1,600 mm.

Tehstroi’s current annual output is approximately 22,000 tonnes. The line, which is being installed in response to growing demand in Russia, will increase the company’s production capacity to about 45,000 tonnes and its market share in Russia to more than 20%, according to Battenfeld-Cincinnati.

Tehstroi has up to now produced pipes with diameters ranging from 32 to 800 mm. These are sold to more than 1,000 customers on the domestic market in Russia and Kazakhstan.

The new line is designed as a coextrusion system for manufacturing pipes with a colour stripe. The line includes a 150 mm single-screw extruder, material feeding, die and downstream equipment as well as a machine control system.
