OMZ-Special Steels Modernizes its Steelmaking Equipment

OMZ-Special Steels, part of OMZ Group, put into operation a lance manipulator for DSP-120 arc furnace. The equipment was produced by Badische Stahl-Engineering GmbH (Germany).

The lance manipulator allows automatic probing, measuring of metal temperature and of oxygen activity during the steelmaking process in DSP-120 furnace. Manipulator accelerates oxidation reaction and metal melting by injecting oxygen and carbon. Machine can also be effectively used in case of overheating due to gas injection through tuyere (tool through which gas or compound is blown into a furnace).

Lance manipulator will allow OMZ-Special Steels to cut melting time using DSP-120, reduce consumption of electrodes, refractory materials and electric energy as well as decrease manual work involved into operating DSP-120.

OMZ-Special Steels purchased the equipment in line with the investment programme carried out with support of Gazprombank, companys financial partner. Investments amount to 23.5 mln rubles in total.
