Russian firm orders complete line for continuous production of PU-insulated pipes

KraussMaffei Berstorff supplies complete systems for continuous production of PU-insulated pipesTechnopark, a plastic pipe producer headquartered in St. Petersburg recently ordered a complete line. The Russian company is an important pipe manufacturer, operating several extrusion lines to produce a wide spectrum of pipe grades for different applications. Technopark is now expanding its production capacity with the new system from KraussMaffei Berstorff, which it will use to produce pipe for district heating systems by encasing media pipes, made of crosslinked polyethylene, with polyurethane foam insulation and a PE outer sheath.

The biggest insulated pipe systems produced on this line have an outer diameter of 180 mm, the diameter of the media pipe itself is 110 mm. With low manpower input, this endless process delivers production speeds of up to 5 m/min. The district heating pipe systems that come off the production line can be laid easily, quickly and at low cost. In addition, the number of joins required can be sharply reduced.
