Chelyabinsk Metallurgical Plant revamps gas cleaner at steelmaking facility

12February2018
Chelyabinsk Metallurgical Plant (ChMK PAO, MOEX: CHMK) completed large-scale maintenance works at its oxygen-converter workshops gas cleaning system.

These measures will improve the plant’s ecological safety level.

In order for the converter to comply with the highest ecological requirements, its environment protection equipment has been thoroughly revised and repaired. The converter was equipped with efficient wet exhaust gas cleaning systems with a closed water supply cycle. Service maintenance of such an equipment enables it to work with a high degree of filtration and reduce the production facilities’ impact on the environment to a minimum.

The oxygen converter workshop includes three converters and an arc furnace that produce a total of over 3.9 million tonnes of steel annually, as well as four concasters that produce some 3.5 million tonnes of steel billets a year.
