Ironmaking Plant. Burden bins of Blast Furnace № 7
The conveyer charging of blast furnaces
satisfies to the most extent the requirements of an efficient ironmaking
process at operation using a beneficiated burden with the minimum quantity of
Till 2011 only two blast furnaces with a
conveyer belt top charging were in
operation in Russia: Blast Furnace № 6 with a volume of 3200 m3 of
“NLMK” OJSC (designed by “Gipromez”, 1972) and Blast Furnace № 5 with a volume
of 5500 m3
of CherMK (designed by “Lengipromez”, 1986).
The complex of the burden bins facilities of
Blast Furnace № 7 at “NLMK” OJSC (with a throughput capacity of 21,000 t of
burden materials per a day) constructed according to the “Lengipromez” OJSC
design which makes provision for receipt, storekeeping, sizing and conveyer
belt charging of the burden materials by batches into the blast furnace has
