Refractory lining installation of BF-1 PJSC Tulachermet
Refractory lining project of Blast Furnace No.1 of PJSC Tulachermet was completed at the end of September 2020.
During this project Refracon performed the following steps: installation of the anchors, preparation of moulds, and refractory installation with shotcreting technique. The installation was performed using new installation methods, specially designed for the Blast Furnace Modular Hearth Shield Installation by Seven Refractories, which also carried out the supervision and the supply of materials. It is worth noting that the technology of preliminary monolithic lining of the cooling zone was used for the first time for PJSC Tulachermet. Refracon already has gained experience of this technology at the plants of such metallurgical giants as PJSC MMK and PJSC NLMK.
In the project, Refracon installed over 400 tons of refractories: shotcrete Seven Shot, self-flowing castable Seven Flow and Seven Plast.
This was already the second project Refracon Installations has completed for PJSC Tulachermet during this year. The long and fruitful cooperation with PJSC Tulachermet has been ongoing since 2015 and is based the observance of modern standards of work quality, the use of advanced technologies and state-of-the-art equipment.
