24.03.06 | UMMC will put an arc-furnace complex into operation at Metallurgical plant n.a. A.K.Serov in summer

Serov (Sverdlovsk region)



UMMC is going to introduce the arc-furnace complex at "OJSC Metallurgical plant n.a. A.K.Serov" (an enterprise of UMMC metallurgical complex) in summer within the second stage of reconstruction of the enterprise steelmaking complex.

A modern method of steelmaking - melting in arc furnaces - in contrast to open-hearth method will make it possible for the UMMC enterprise to produce metal of even better quality, diversify the range of rolled products and reduce production costs. The new arc-furnace complex will include an electric arc furnace EAF-80 (supplied by Danieli, Italy), water treatment plant, fume treatment system,power supply and hydraulics departments.

As Nikolay Metelev, director on reconstruction of steelmaking complex, stated "Tap-to-tap time in EAF-80 will be 47 min., whereas it will take 8 hours to produce semifinished steel in an open-hearth furnace for further dressing it in the ladle furnace (out-of-furnace steel treatment)".

Nowadays the specialists of the metallurgical plant together with its contractors install the

equipment for the steel-smelting furnace and fume treatment equipment. They also conduct construction and erection works at power supply and hydraulics departments, in auxiliary rooms from where bulk materials will be dispatched for their future use in the electric furnace. Mechanical assembly of two 160-ton cranes supplied by Danieli is completed, commissioning is performed at one of the cranes. At the initial stage the new cranes will be used during installation of heavy equipment for 80-ton electric arc furnace and hereafter for furnace operations (transportation of metal). It should be mentioned that it is the first case of installation of crane facilities with the lifting capacity of 160 tons at Metallurgical plant n.a. A.K.Serov.

As it was reported, these days UMMC implements the second stage of reconstruction of steel-making production at OJSC "Metallurgical plant n.a. A.K.Serov", the volume of investments in which is estimated as more than ?50 mln.

After commissioning of the arc-furnace complex UMMC will start construction of vacuumator supplied by Danieli and when it will be put into operation the second stage of reconstruction of the steelmaking complex will be completed.

Before, in June 2003, an out-of-furnace steel treatment unit, or "ladle furnace", produced by Danieli as well was put into operation at Metallurgical plant n.a. A.K.Serov. The first stage of reconstruction of steelmaking was finished with its commissioning.
