50 years ago, back in 1966, in Volgograd, at the All-Union Scientific Research and Design Technological Institute of Chemical and Petroleum Apparatus (VNIIPTKhimnefteapparatury), the Research Laboratory for Pipe Flaring (LRT) was created, which opened a new direction of research and development in the field of technology for the manufacture of shell-and-tube heat exchangers and AVO. LRT still remains the only specialized laboratory in Russia for fastening pipes in tube sheets of heat exchangers by expanding. All theoretical and applied research and development on this issue in our country have been made by LRT researchers.
