Quench & Temper

Thermatool’s Quench and Temper lines feature the most widely used and popular solid state induction power supplies available. With over 30,000 units installed worldwide for melting, heating, and heat treatment applications, the model VIP induction power supply is the most advanced technology accessible. In addition, Thermatool’s advanced precision slot quench has revolutionised the heat treat market and surmounted long standing limitations to tubular and bar quenching. Effective hardening and tempering requires the ability to deliver uniformly heated material to achieve optimum product straightness and minimal cracking through the quench. The combination of the latest computerised process controls in heating and quenching has benefited numerous industries that require quenched and tempered product. End users producing large pipe for the OCTG industry, food grade tube and pipe, and hardened and tempered bars are able to meet physical material properties demanded in many markets utilising the Thermatool quench and temper line.

High Speed Flying Shears

Alpha® Flying Shears utilise a patented double cut die set which enables producers to cut dimple free, ready for market products directly off the mill.

Tube materials which can be cut include mild steel, high tensile carbon steels, boron steel, austenitic and ferritic stainless steel, aluminium, brass and copper.

The Thermatool Alpha® High-Speed Flying Shears, offer tube and pipe producers the world’s fastest and most accurate cut-off system.

Thermatool’s Alpha® Flying Shear Systems fully optimise the cutting process enabling cut-to-length tubing to be produced dimple free, with minimum burr, to a cut-off accuracy of ±1mm and at cycle rates of up to 240m/min. Furthermore, Alpha® Flying Shears help to reduce the number of steps required in the tube manufacturing process, enabling the producer to cut-to-length on the mill ensuring the lowest processing costs.

For over sixty years, the name “Alpha” has meant high-performance tube cutting. More ready-to-ship tube has been cut using Alpha® double cut technology than any other type of cutoff. Today, we continue to push the boundaries of technology and innovation to produce the new generation of high-performance Alpha® flying shears.

Considerable research and development has resulted in our highest performance shears, providing even higher reliability, faster line speeds, closer tolerances and increased tooling life. These advantages, coupled with reduced footprints, automatic lubrication and quick-change tooling, make the Alpha® shear the most reliable, high-speed cutoff available.

Today, Alpha® flying shears are cutting low and high tensile carbon steels, boron steel, austenitic and ferritic stainless steels, aluminium, brass and copper products on tube mills worldwide. Our experienced service engineers are trained to support our complete range of cutoffs – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year. Equipment service and operator training ensures easy access to assistance for all customers.

With unparalleled experience coupled with equipment built to last the life of the mill, means you are guaranteed increased yield.

Advances in infrastructure, robust OCTG industry to support energy transition

Key insights from the U.S. Energy Information Administration’s (EIA’s) 2019 annual energy outlook depicts the current energy balance and modeled behavior through 2050. There is a clear dependency on natural gas plant liquids (NGPL) production, which carries an anticipated growth period throughout EIA’s forecast. It is a bridge fuel which supports growth of distributed power generation and renewable energy technologies, a modeled energy transition that has become reliant on economically viable tight oil and shale gas operations.

Reducing the carbon footprint
Natural gas is a near-term solution for domestic energy demands in the U.S. It carries a reduced carbon footprint when compared to traditional non-renewable resources. It also stabilizes portions of the power grid that are reliant on intermittent power sources, has expedited decommissioning of coal-fired power plants and is even used as a feedstock for solid oxide fuel cells, a zero-carbon alternative to traditional power-generation methods.

Advanced drilling techniques
The economic viability of developed tight oil and shale gas resources is a key factor dictating the role natural gas plays in the national energy budget. Although these resources exist globally, the U.S. has remained at the forefront by developing innovative horizontal drilling techniques that have enabled operators to boost estimated recovery and increase well productivity in a manner that is cleaner, lower cost and safer than traditional methods.
