UrBC, Magnitogorsk, March 1, 2019. The new cryogenic plant at Magnitogorsk Iron & Steel Works (MMK) Oxygen Department produced 100m m3 of industrial gases, including oxygen, nitrogen, and argon, MMK’s press service reports.

The cryogenic plant cost RUB 4.2bn and was put up at Oxygen Station 5 of MMK Oxygen Department in July 2018.

The cryogenic air separation plant KlAdAr 35/30 was designed and manufactured by Moscow Region-based CryogenMash; the unit makes 35,000 m3 of oxygen, 30,000 m3 of nitrogen, and 600 m2 of argon gases per hour, as well as a certain amount of oxygen, nitrogen, and argon-bearing liquid.

The plant operates on the air gas internal compression principle, which makes it possible to get the industrial gases under the necessary pressure without using any extra compressors. This technology is particularly safe and ensures trouble-free equipment performance.
