Inductotherm Group Hall 6, Stands C39 & C40
The biennial International Tube & Pipe Fair takes place in Dusseldorf, Germany between 26 and 30 March 2012. As usual, Inductotherm Group will have a strong presence at the show, exhibiting a host of new and exciting induction heating products from Thermatool and Radyne – Specifically developed for the tube and pipe production industry.
Visitors to the Inductotherm Group stand will have the chance to operate one of the very latest Thermatool HCT solid-state HF welders equipped with HAZControl Technology™. Designed to provide greater control of the welding process with selectable weld frequency in 1kHz increments, HAZ (Heat Affected Zone) control ensures “superior cost-effective product” – run after run.
The new Thermatool Smart Annealing control console will be on display for the first time in Europe. Smart Annealing systems provide producers of API grade pipe with greater, repeatable control over both the temperature and the positioning of multiple heat stations during the Seam Annealing process. Spiral Seam Annealing systems are also available for API grade SAW pipe.
For visitors interested in precision, high-speed cutting of tube, Thermatool’s Alpha-cut series flying shears can now be taken to the next level with new operator controls and new accelerators. A range of new cold saws and friction saws are also now available for the European market.
A new design of Radyne clam shell induction coil will be on display, ideal for precision induction heating (prior to coating) of API grade pipe sections during offshore field-jointing operations. Onshore producers of API grade oil and gas pipe and water pipe will have an opportunity to discuss the very latest in Radyne induction pre-heating systems, prior to continuous pipe coating.
The most exciting display on the stand features a Precision Quench Ring™ in continuous operation. Visitors will be able to see at close range Thermatool’s environmentally friendly, high velocity, impinging quench spray utilised in Quench & Temper systems for bar, pipe and tube heat treatment.
