General information

In 2016 we have established a certification body (OSP NTP Truboprovod OOO), which is a separate division of Piping Systems Research & Engineering Co. Truboprovod.

Experts of the certification body use in their work an experience obtained in the design of oil refining, petrochemical and chemical industries; expertise of projects of plants, facilities and technical devices; diagnostics and non-destructive testing of vessels, apparatuses, tanks and pipes.

Main field of activity is confirmation of conformity of the equipment with the following technical regulations:

  • TR CU 010/2011 "On safety of machinery and equipment";
  • TR CU 032/2013 "On safety of equipment operating under excessive pressure"

Our experts are leading specialists in the field of certification, as evidenced by the participation in the development of the following standards by NTP Truboprovod:

  • GOST 32569-2013 "Process steel pipelines. Requirements for design and operation in fire-, explosion and chemically hazardous production facilities";
  • GOST 32388-2013 "Process pipelines. Codes and methods of strength and vibration analysis and calculation of seismic loads";
  • Safety Guide "Recommendations for design and safe operation of process pipelines";
  • GOST R 55722-2013 "Vessels and apparatus. "Codes and methods of strength analysis. Calculation of seismic loads";
  • GOST R 55596-2013 "Heat networks. Codes and methods of strength analysis and calculation of seismic loads";
  • SA 03-004-07 "Strength analysis of vessels and apparatus. Association for Standards "Rostekhekspertiza";
  • SA 03-005-07 "Process piping of oil refining, petrochemical and chemical industries. Requirements for construction and operation"
  • STO 10-001-2009 "Heat networks. Standards of strength analysis";
  • STO-СА-03.003-2009 "Vessels and apparatus. Codes and methods of strength analysis. Calculation of seismic loads".

Besides, NTP Truboprovod is a leading developer and supplier of software, intended for engineering calculations of pipelines, process equipment and technical devices:

  • PASS/START – strength analysis of different purpose pipelines;
  • Start Express Online - service for analysis of piping elements, U, L, Z-shaped expansion joints, etc.;
  • PASS/Resource – analysis of remaining life of pipelines;
  • PASSAT – strength analysis of vessels and apparatus;
  • PASS/Nozzle-FEM – strength analysis of stub-ins and estimation of allowable loads;
  • PASS/Hydrosystem – hydraulic and thermohydraulic analysis, as well as selection of diameters of different-purpose piping systems, with detailed consideration of local resistances;
  • PASS/Predklapan (Safety valve) – analysis and selection of pressure safety valves, which is performed together with hydraulic analysis of the inlet and outlet pipes
  • PASS/STARS – analysis of thermophysical properties and phase equilibrium of substances by their composition. Integrated database includes more than 1605 individual components.

Many of NTP Truboprovod’s programs are considered as "standard" in the CIS countries, concerning relevant calculations.
