A steel-smelting converter is now being restored at Nizhniy Tagil Iron & Steel Works (part of Evraz Group) LD plant,’ the PR Department of Ural Corporate Relations Center reports.

This is the third out of the company’s four converters; the facility is to be renovated within the framework of a large-scale four-year program on the enterprise’s steel-smelting division’s modernization.

The restoration will last sixty-five days, in which the converter, the oxygen-supplying unit, the waste heat boiler, the gas-cleaning facility, the power and electricity supply systems and the mechanical infrastructure will be replaced.

The new converter will be capable of producing 160 tons of hot metal every thirty minutes.
