Preexisting mini-cycles, where groups of mills were cooled by the intermediate heat exchanger and recycled water reached their limits. This fall, Cherepovets site as part of the modernization of wire drawing equipment is scheduled to begin installation of the German mills, which (along with the already installed) require a more efficient cooling.
The new rotation cycle was designed by experts Cherepovets site based on the experience of colleagues from the Volgograd branch of "Severstal-hardware" and the Cherepovets Steel Mill. In the construction work involved nineteen contractors from Cherepovets, St. Petersburg and Moscow. Construction of the cycle going in the current production without stopping the equipment. In total, laid more than three kilometers of pipelines (pipe diameters up to 500 mm), established ten pumps with a total capacity of 2.5 MW, and the reconstructed three-piece fan cooling tower.
The cycle has a high capacity — up to 1800 m³ / h with cooling water from 38 ° to 28 ° C. It was put into operation in mid-July. At the moment on the court terminates the connection mills and commissioning of the system of automatic control. Note that the cycle is able to provide water to the desired temperature of all plant equipment, including new machines, which will be established here in the coming years.
"As part of an ambitious program to modernize the equipment, we have implemented one of the largest investment projects — the creation of improved water cycle, — the general director of JSC" Severstal-hardware "Oleg Veter. — Construction completed in time — in September just to start the installation of the new wire-drawing equipment, which we are ready to provide efficient cooling.
