The effectiveness of the modernization of the KM-14 roasting machine, which was carried out by the specialists of Ukraine Energy in the sinter shop of the Zaporizhstal plant, was confirmed. The specialists of the metallurgical enterprise have estimated that the consumption of natural gas will decrease by more than 1 million cubic meters per year, and the quality of sintering roasting has already increased by 13%.
Professionals of the Ukraine Energy completely changed the heating system of the unit, so that it could work both on natural gas and on the coke domain mixture. During the modernization, the entire gas-air piping was replaced, and a new automation system with a control cabinet, a metering station for natural and mixed gases, a primary and backup fans with frequency converters were installed.
In addition, the company’s specialists manufactured and supplied a multi-fuel burner device (in cooperation with the Gas Institute of the NAS of Ukraine) carried out all installation and commissioning works, as well as personnel training.
“Thanks to the Zaporizhstal for choosing us to modernize the roasting machine, and for effective partnership during this difficult time,” – said Roman Melnikov, Technical Director of Ukraine Energy.
