Tube-Rolling Workshop

The Rustavi Metallurgical Plant’s tube-rolling workshop produces high-quality hot-rolled seamless pipes between 168 and 426mm in diameter with wall 6-50mm thick on a Mill-400.

The hot-rolled seamless pipes are produced in accordance with the following international standards:

  • GOST 8731/32
  • GOST 632/633
  • API Spec 5L
  • API Spec 5 CT
  • EN 10210
  • EN 10297
  • ASTM A 106
  • ASTM A53/A53M

Pipes produced according to these standards are used for laying main pipelines, long-range oil or gas transportation, bore-holes for the extraction of oil or gas, general construction, for the automotive industry or for other technical purposes.

A Mill-140 in this workshop needs to be rebuilt. When this will be completed, it will be possible to produce seamless pipes 60 to 146mm in diameter with walls 4-22mm thick.

The “140” and “400” tube-rolling mills stand in a shared, eight-bayed building 632 metres long and 240 metres wide. Along the wall of the main building and next to the Mill-400 are work stations for the manufacture of rectangular pipes and automated lines for the production of sleeves.
