KALUGIN Company attended ASIA STEEL 2018, the 7th International Conference for Iron and Steel Technology

KALUGIN’s engineers attended ASIA STEEL 2018, the 7th International Conference for Iron and Steel Technology, which was held from 6th to 9th February 2018 in Bhubaneswar, Odisha, India.
The conference was organized by the Indian Institute of Metals and Tata Steel Ltd. and co-organized by the Chinese Society for Metals, Korean Institute of Metals and Materials and Iron and Steel Institute of Japan.
At the conference the representatives of the world’s leading iron and steel and engineering companies presented their new developments and technologies in the following fields: 
- Raw Materials Mining and Processing
- Agglomeration, Coke Making, Blast Furnace and Alternative Iron Making
- HM Treatment, BOF, EAF, Inclusions & Quality, Secondary Steelmaking, Continuous Casting
- Hot and Cold Rolling
- Environmental Engineering and Waste Utilization
and many others.
Mr. Sergey Ivlev, KALUGIN’s Chief Project Engineer, made a presentation on High-Temperature Top Combustion Stoves of Kalugin Design for Blast Furnaces and talked about the company’s achievements and developments improving the key parameters of stove (KSS) operation. 
It should be reminded that the specific feature of Kalugin Shaftless Stove (KSS) is its ability to provide the world’s highest blast temperature of 1400°C, which is approximately by 25% higher than the temperature provided by conventional hot stoves of other suppliers. KSS is characterized by small capital expenditures for construction, higher reliability of operation, environmental friendliness and cost efficiency. This is ensured by a unique stove design with a burner at the top of the dome. The higher blast temperature enables to reduce consumption of expensive coke, improve performance of the blast furnace and the entire iron making process.
For reference: 
ASIA STEEL International Conference is held once every three years. It was held in China in 2000, in India in 2003, in Japan in 2006, in Korea in 2009, in China in 2012 and in Japan in 2015. 
This year more than 400 experts from over 20 countries attended the conference.
