EVRAZ ZSMK Invests RUB 90m in Converter Overhaul

UrBC, Yekaterinburg, November 28, 2019. The 55-day overhaul of an oxygen converter (capacity: 100,000,000+ kg of steel a month) has been completed at EVRAZ Holding West-Siberian Integrated Metallurgical Plant (EVRAZ ZSMK); the plant has invested RUB 90m into the project.

‘The overhaul involved replacing the primary and ancillary parts of the converters as well as installing a new control and operation system. This will improve the steel-smelters’ working conditions and will ensure the converter unit’s uninterrupted performance,’ says EVRAZ PR Department.

The plant currently operates five converters all in all, with total steel output at 570,000,000 kg a month. Another converter, as well as a CC machine, are scheduled for an overhaul in 2020; Oxygen Converter 4 will get fully replaced next year also.

EVRAZ ZSMK’s steel-smelting facilities produce around 35 different kinds of steel with the help of slab-casting and sorting CC machines. The billets either get used for making rolled metal goods or get exported. The slabs manufactured at the plant get supplied to 20 different countries.
