The finished castings meet the strict requirements for mechanical properties, microstructure, chemical composition and density. Cast iron is produced in IChT-6 induction furnaces.
Castings weight: from 50 g to 20,000 kg at maximum dimensions of 6000 x 4000 x 900 mm.

For steel castings the following steel grades are used: 20L, 25Л, 20GL, 20GSL, 35GL, 20Kh13L, 12Kh18N9TL, (GOST 977-88). The steel castings are intended to manufacture parts of pumps for NPP, centrifuges and heavy-duty compressors, which are operated in conditions of radioactive media and high pressure. Steel melting is carried out in DSP-1.5, DSP-3 electric arc and IST – 0.4 induction furnaces.

Thermal process

It makes possible to perform therm_3 both preliminary and final thermic_2heat and chemical-heat treatment of parts manufactured by the PJSC «Sumy NPO» and the co-operation.

To obtain the desired set of properties of steels and alloys the thermal divisions of workshops are equipped with tools for conducting of all types of heat treatment of forgings, castings, various welded structures and pipes.

For heat treatment (normalizing, quenching in water, tempering) castings weighing up to 6t chamber gas furnace with the size of working space 2900x4500x2150mm are used.

The age-hardening of cast iron is carried out in a furnace with bogie hearth working volume of 3950x8150x3800mm.

Heat treatment of forgings is carried out in the gas chamber and shaft electric furnaces.

The Company istherm_1thermic_1 in possession of specialized divisions manufacturing cold rolled, electric-welded and bimetallic pipes, aluminium profiles.
