Metran industrial group launched the first Russian production of ASCO products. Its first products are to be the solenoid valves of the 327 series and the filter-regulators of the 342 series.
American company Emerson expands its production in Chelyabinsk due to the growth of the oil and gas industry in Russia, as reported by David Farr, President of the Corporation.
“We are already investing in Russia and are present in the oil and gas industry. The main object of our investments is Chelyabinsk, and we are expanding this production now to support investment in the Russian Federation,” Mr. Farr said.
Chelyabinsk Region Governor Boris Dubrovsky attended the opening of a new office and production complex built by Emerson (a company designing and manufacturing measuring devices and automation systems). The Governor’s press service reported that it had taken two years to build the compound located in the north-western area of Chelyabinsk, with investments totaling $40 million. The project is expected to break even in eight years. Apart from existing shops, the 30,000-square meter area is expected to host new research-intensive production facilities based on Nordic technologies. The production building already houses measuring device assembly lines as well as areas for manufacturing control cabinets, and metrology and regulating equipment. Construction of a second shop is planned to be completed in five years.
In December a new Regulator Technologies shop floor has been opened at the Emerson manufacturing facility in Russia. Now, Metran product line will include not only measuring instruments, control valves and DCS control cabinets but also Industrial and Natural Gas pressure regulators. New production launch is another step in implementing the strategy for business localization in Russia and CIS.
The shop floor will be used to assemble the most demanded models of Fisher® industrial regulators for various fluids as well as Tartarini axial flow pilot-operated natural gas regulators (FL series) designed for gas industry and already widely used in Russia and CIS countries. World-renowned Fisher and Tartarini regulators ensure high accuracy in maintaining outlet pressure.
Tartarini regulators may be installed at gas transmission and distribution stations, industrial and commercial reducing and metering skids, power plants, treatment units for fuel, gas regulating stations and other plants requiring reduced gas pressure.
Industrial Fisher regulators maintain a desired outlet pressure while providing the required flow and some models can be used as relief valves. The fluid may be various such as air, steam and gas of any kind, different liquids as well as oil and chemical compounds. Therefore, industrial regulators has become widely used in a number of industries.
As Phase 1, Emerson plans to assemble 3 models of Fisher and Tartarini regulators at the current facility in Chelyabinsk.
"In 2015, the shop floor will be relocated to a new office and manufacturing facility under construction in full swing," Aleksandr Glazyrin, Metran Director General, says. "Being committed to our customers, we decided not to wait until the construction is complete next year. First regulators will be shipped out to Russian industrial enterprises in late November."
New facility is designed with a view to extend current production capabilities including industrial regulators. In future, the regulators model range will be broadened. In addition, regulators will be offered as component parts of some Fisher valves also manufactured in Chelyabinsk.
Final control elements constitute a critical part of process management. Maintenance of desired pressure in pipelines, highly reliable process regulation and isolation ensure process, staff and environmental safety.
