During business meetings Marina Kalugina, KALUGIN’s General Director, told the colleagues about efficient application of innovative Kalugin Shaftless Stoves (KSS) in the ironmaking process. The main feature of Kalugin Shaftless Stoves is their capability to provide the highest temperature of hot blast up to 1400°C, which is higher by 25% as compared to conventional hot stoves from other technology providers. The unique top combustion design of the stoves is characterized by low capital expenditures, high reliability, environmental compatibility and economic efficiency. The higher hot blast temperature enables to reduce consumption of expensive and scarce coke and improve blast furnace performance and ironmaking process on the whole.
‘These conferences help recognize technological trends in development of the world’s iron and steel industry. Our company is always improving the technology of Kalugin Shaftless Stoves, which allows us to be a leader in this field at the international and domestic markets,” announced Marina Kalugina.
