UrBC, Yekaterinburg, June 28, 2016. EVRAZ Holding member West-Siberian Integrated Metallurgical Works (ZSMK) completed the overhaul of its blast furnace 1, EVRAZ Holding Siberia’s press office reports.

‘This will ensure better production performance and increase time between repairs. To make sure there are no emergencies, we had the hood partially replaced and the cooling system completely replaced, new modern pumps added and the fire-insulating adjustments renovated. We also had the loading units repaired and some of the upper-part equipment replaced,’ the press office says.

The repairs also involved some measures to increase the operating temperature and reduce coke spending. Gas-filtering systems were improved, with two new smoke-filtering devices added to decrease environmental impact and improve the furnace operators’ working conditions.
