Bronx Taylor Wilson are celebrating an outstanding year in demand for its highly proven API quality Hydrostatic Pipe Testing Equipment. From the Americas, through Europe and into Asia, Bronx has been awarded contract for the design, manufacture and installation of their market leading pipe finishing equipment.

Bronx/Taylor-Wilson, has been awarded a contract for the design, manufacture and installation of a new Hydrostatic Pipe Testing machine for API 5L and 5 CT product for Vallourec & Mannesmann Tubes in Brazil. The machine will be shipped in early 2006 and will test 60.3 to 178mm diameter pipe up to a maximum test pressure of 690 Bar. The design features of the new tester will posses numerous refinements which improve cycle time and manufacturing uptime, and reduce maintenance expense. These were all factors taken into account and considered by Vallourec & Mannesmann Tubes and resulted in Bronx Taylor Wilson being chosen as the preferred supplier for this machine.

The order followed a intense period of activity for Bronx Taylor Wilson in the Hydrostatic Pipe Testing field. Chengdu Steel Plant of China has also recently placed an order for a similar testing machine for API quality Casing & Tubing. This particular machine will be testing diameters up to 340mm to pressures of 140MPa and with an annual production capacity of over 150,000 tonnes. The Hydrotesting Installation will be shipped to Chengdu in the fourth quarter of 2006.

In addition Bronx has been awarded a contract to supply pipe finishing equipment for a new seamless pipe plant to be installed in the Pavlodar region of Kazakhstan as part of a facility for the production of 270,000 tonnes/year of seamless oil industry pipe. The equipment to be supplied by Bronx comprises two heavy duty tube straightening machines, together with two hydrostatic pipe testing installations suitable for API quality pipe up to 13-5/8" outside diameter. The equipment will be able to offer test pressures up to 130MPa and the pipe qualities tested will be up to an API standard Q125. The lines will operate within the Quality Assurance and Heat Treatment sections of the mill.

Two similar machines have recently been shipped to API pipe Mills within the TMK group of companies in Russia. The first is Joint Stock Company Taganrog Metallurgical Works and will pressure test up to 219 mm diameter pipe to 150 MPa. The second machine has been shipped to Joint Stock Company Sinarsky Pipe Works Zavodskoy plant. This machine will be capable of pressure testing 177.8 mm diameter pipe up to 150 MPa.
