At one of the shops of automotive foundry plant "Ural" "GAZ Group" (Miass, Chelyabinsk region) was put into operation a new furnace transformers manufactured at the production complex "Electrozavod" (Moscow).
Modern transformer improve the reliability of the entire automobile manufacturing equipment. Electric furnace transformer capacity of 5000 kilovol-amp is connected to the furnace DS 5MT number 4, which melts the steel grade 35L arc AC. The new unit is manufactured using modern technologies and innovative materials, is water-cooled and controlled remotely.
Its capacity to power more than a quarter of the old transformer, which will increase the productivity of the electric arc furnace and reduce the time of each heat. As a result, a 10% increase in the number of electric arc furnace smelted liquid metal.
