The converter shop of EVRAZ Consolidated West-Siberian Metallurgical Plant (EVRAZ ZSMK, Novokuznetsk) started pilot commercial operation of a 1300 t stationary mixer manufactured by Uralmash – Mining Equipment (Orsk, subsidiary of "Uralmashplant" JSC). This is the first equipment of its kind manufactured at the Orsk site.

The mixer is used to homogenize the chemical composition of the cast iron before it is poured into the converter. The commissioning of the new equipment will increase the efficiency of the shop and optimize natural gas consumption in the production process.

MC-1300 will feed metal to three converters at EVRAZ ZSMK. The new unit currently undergoes commissioning activities. Metallurgists observe the equipment, adjust its settings and draw up all necessary documents. The enterprise plans to start commercial operation of the mixer in December 2022.

"This is the first time we have organized a full production cycle of mixers at the Orsk site - from design to production and delivery to the customer. The successful commissioning of the first mixer confirms that Uralmash - Mining Equipment has mastered this product line," says Oleg Tsetsora, General Director of Uralmash - Mining Equipment.

Another EVRAZ plant, EVRAZ NTMK (Nizhny Tagil, Sverdlovsk Region) currently completes erection of one more MC-1300. Meanwhile specialists of Uralmash - Mining Equipment have already started to develop a stationary mixer for Ural Steel.
