Metallurgical Industrial Complex of Nizhniy Tagil repairs powder-gas cleaning equipment at open-hearth plant

Metallurgical Industrial Complex of Nizhniy Tagil JSC (part of Evraz Group) started giving overhaul to the powder-gas cleaning equipment of its No. 10 open-hearth furnace. The repairs are expected to take 90 days, since, technology wise, it is only possible in the summertime.

As the environmentally protective system is no being repaired, the company took special steps to decrease the hazardous effects of their activity: the open-hearth plant now has to produce less than usual, and the furnaces are stopped from time to time, each in its turn. The atmospheric condition is monitored daily by both the company’s center of environmental analysis (certified by Rosgidromet, the Federal Hydrometeorology and Environmental Monitoring Service) and the municipal weather station. Neither of them has recorded any MPC of harmful substances so far.

Renovation of all of the company’s powder-gas cleaning units is part of the municipal environmental program, reports the spokesperson for Evraz Holding.
