At the West Siberian Metallurgical Combine (Novokuznetsk, Kemerovo Oblast) was fully renovated and completed commissioning work on the complex, the last of the three machines sintered agglomerate before loading into the blast furnace.
The modernization of 12 square meters of working area of the machine is increased by 5% and its performance. This increases the quality of sinter that in the future the process will reduce the consumption of coke in blast furnaces for iron production. According to the press service of the plant, the modernization, for the account of a new, fully automated and protected from vibration control panel significantly improved working conditions Aglomeratchikov.
Repair of this scale in the sintering machines held for the first time since its commissioning in 1967. Within 90 days before the foundations were demolished old, worn out metal, and then installed 1.5 million tons of steel skeleton of the new unit. Completely replaced by a gas reservoir, the main drive gear, fiery furnace, conveyor system associated with the machine in a single technological chain. Fundamentally changed translated into the new computer technology of sintering machine control system.
In works on the reconstruction of sinter was attended by over 500 professionals.
