In June 2012, the DHM GROUP team together with Tulachermet OJSC (Russia) performed a test study of upgraded welded sintering pallets.


The TC-3.0 pallets, designed and upgraded by our company, have been in use by the sintering machine No. 1 at Tulachermet OJSC since May 2011. The most outstanding feature of the sintering pallet designed by DHM GROUP is using heavy-duty steel supporting beams for operations performed in high-temperature environments. This decreased the total weight of pallets by 30% and significantly eased off the load for the drives of sintering machines.


The committee analysing the outcomes of the test study noted the complete lack of any pallet bending and a high performance of its bearing box. In order to continue their study of the new state-of-the-art structure of sintering pallets, Tulachermet OJSC and DHM GROUP signed a contract for the supply of the second trial batch.
