Thermatool announces the successful start-up of an API pipe mill at Faray Petroleum Steel Pipe Co. Ltd. in Dongying, China. The mill is equipped with a Thermatool model CFI 1000 (1000 KW Output) Induction
Welding unit which achieves very high quality welds operating at a frequency of 230 kHz. Three Thermatool VIP 500 KW 1 kHz Annealing units are also included in the line.
