KALUGIN JSC took part in AISTech 2018 International Conference
On May 7-8 in Philadelphia, Pa., USA KALUGIN JSC, as a permanent participant, presented a paper at AISTech 2018 STEEL’S PREMIER TECHNOLOGY EVENT International Conference.
The conference was organized by Association for Iron and Steel Technology (AIST), a non-profit organization of iron and steel producers, technology providers, research and development centers and technical universities which unites 17,000 members from more than 70 countries of the world.
As a part of the Conference, companies producing metallurgical equipment and different accessory components presented their innovative developments in the international exhibition.
Experts of global leading producers of metallurgical equipment introduced their innovative projects at the International Research to Practice Conference. KALUGIN company presented its innovative technology of Kalugin shaftless stoves (KSS), application of which enables blast-furnace complexes of any design to achieve the best operation parameters and environmental performance in the world. The presentation of this unique Russian technology traditionally attracted much interest from expert community and eventual customers.
It is to be recalled that a special feature of Kalugin shaftless stoves is its ability to provide the highest level of blast temperature up to 1350°C - 1400°C which is appr.25% higher than the temperature of conventional hot stoves of other technology providers. The unique design of the equipment with a burner on top of the dome is notable for low capital expenses, the highest reliability, ecological compatibility and economic efficiency. Increase of blast temperature allows reducing the rate of expensive coke, increasing efficiency of blast furnaces and the whole steelmaking production. It is important to note that 218 hot stoves have been constructed and 32 KSS are being designed by KALUGIN JSC for iron and steel works.
According to Marina Kalugina, General Director of KALUGIN JSC, a lot have been discussed during three days of the Conference. “AISTech is a specialized exhibition of metallurgical equipment for our company where advanced universal technology trend in development of the iron and steel industry can be seen”, - mentioned M.Kalugina.
