October 2015 - Nuclear Tube Straightening Contracts
We are pleased to announce further contracts for staightening zirconium nuclear tubing in Asia.
Turner continues to lead the field in the straightening of nuclear tubing especially when it comes to the control of roll loads applied to the tube.
A significant problem is maintaining just enough roll pressure on the tube to perform good straightening whilst ensuring that the material is not overworked. Should excess pressure be used, zirconium is suspectable to hydride orienation in service resulting in early material failure.
By controlling, very carefully, the roll pressure Turner 10 Roll precision straightening machines can produce good straiughteness without significantly affecting the material properties.
