Severstal makes its first delivery of large diameter pipes to Canada

satisfy the typical requirements of the Canadian market. The pipes, which have diameters ranging between 508-1066.8mm and wall thicknesses between 12.7-19.05mm, were manufactured from X42M PSL2/ GR 290-II + Gr B and X70M PSL2/GR 483-II + GR 448-II strength steel. They were produced at the Izhora Plant (part of the Severstal Russian Steel division of PJSC Severstal) in the Kolpinsky district of St Petersburg, using heavy plate from Severstal’s own Steel Plate Mill 5000, located on the same industrial site as the Izhora Pipe Plant. The pipes were coated with a thin anti-corrosive epoxy layer to protect them from corrosion and damage during transportation. Severstal control valves, AWWA butterfly valves and eccentric plug valves. They were installed alongside IW Mk2 quarter-turn worm gearboxes. The actuators are able to accurately control the exact amount of flow. Going beyond simple open/close functions, they can move the valves and gates to exact positions to provide complete control of flow in the process. In addition to this modulating service, the actuators also provide an isolating service in a new digester process. The digester process breaks down the waste material to produce biogas and the actuators ensure that the flow of municipal wastewater can be stopped, should it be necessary to do so. These new installations were not the first Rotork actuators on site. With an installed base of IQTs connected through DeviceNet and an additional installation of around 50 IQ3 intelligent integral non-intrusive electric actuators and IQTs in 2016, Rotork has a strong presence at East Lansing WRRF and it is expected to grow with future developments with the assistance of agent Systems Specialties.

production and distribution of pipes in North America, adding value to a variety of Canadian industrial activities. Alexander Semyonov, sales director for the energy sector at Severstal, commented: “Last year, Severstal significantly expanded its export geography for its LDP offering, cementing its position as a global market player. This is testament to the hard work put in by the whole team in developing new markets and products for our offering, as well as providing a superior service for international clients.” Severstal has produced LDP which meets both the Canadian CSA Z245.1 standard and American API5L specifications. The pipes also meet NACE MR 0103 and NACE MR 0175 and are made to
