Oxygen-converter shop of Nizhny Tagil Iron and Steel Works - the first in Russian metallurgy, where it was implemented the technology of vanadium iron conversion in oxygen converters with vanadium extraction and steel smelting, celebrated 55 years of its successful work in October 2018. SE "UkrRTC "Energostal" fruitfully cooperates with Iron and Steel Works for many years, solving the problems of modernizing the systems of oxygen converter shop. Since the 1970s, the specialists of the Center have been actively involved in constructing systems aimed at removal, cooling and cleaning of flue gases of converter shop. In 2006 - 2010 the Center, in partnership with the Austrian company Siemens-VAI, has carried out a complete reconstruction of four 160-ton converters in conditions of operating production with development, production, supply and commissioning of gas outlet ducts equipment. Reconstruction enables increasing steel production by 20% and at the same time reducing emissions of dust into the atmosphere by 300 tons/year. During the reconstruction, it was implemented the improved boiler-cooler for converter waste gases of membrane design (developed by SE "UkrRTC "Energostal"), which made it possible to reduce significantly energy consumption for water circulation.
The staff of SE "UkrRTC "Energostal" congratulates EVRAZ NTMK on the 55th anniversary of the converter shop and wishes further creative success.
