Liberty Ostrava has completed the installation of a new non-destructive control test line for seamless tubes worth CZK 35 million. The new, fully digital system, which meets the most demanding standards, replaces the analogue system from the 1990s. The investment will enable the plant to extend the test range of tubes used for oil and gas transport, allowing it to test tubes used for boilers and heat exchangers as well as larger steel structures. The supplier of the new digital system was Institute Dr. Foerster of Germany, which is among global leaders in this sphere.

The quality of tubes produced at the Small Stiefel mill of Liberty Ostrava, used for gas or oil distribution, boilers, heat exchangers and steel structures, has up to now been tested using an analogue system from 1996, which was unable to test tubes with diameter below 60 mm. The new test line will enable non-destructive testing of the entire product range, i.e. seamless tubes of 21.3-140 mm diameter.
