Stack repair of BF-3 in PAO «Tulachermet»
In April 2020, Refracon carried out repair works for blast furnace stack No. 3 of Tulachermet. The work was carried out using the shotcreting method, from a suspended movable platform installed in the blast furnace stack. For concrete reinforcement, heat resistant stainless-steel anchors were used. For the project, a variety of selected products including Seven Shot and Seven Grout from Seven Refractories were combined. In total, more than 600 tons of various monolithic refractory materials were installed. Refracon Installations has already used the shotcreting method at Tulachermet during the repair of the BF-3 stack in July 2015.
