Field drift. Thereon electric trains with trolleys deliver ore from the loading area to the crushing complex.
The cabin of the train operator.
Circular trolley’s tumbler.
Underground crushing complex.
Crushing and processing plant.
The Serov’s Metallurgical plant. Since 1896 till the First World War the factory had been made rails for the Trans-Siberian Railway.
Modern Plant is a company with a full metallurgical cycle. It has sintering, blast furnace, electric furnace and rolling production.
The plant produces about 200 types of steels.
Production of crude iron.
The left bucket is filled with crude iron bucket, and the right with ladle slag.
Streams of molten metal are separated with sand
Closing of the furnace after crude iron exited.
A gas escaping.
A slag draining.
80-ton electric arc furnace.
Slag removal from the surface of the liquid metal.
The duration of melting in an electric furnace DSP-80 is 47 minutes. While in open-hearth furnaces for steel-making it takes about 8 hours.
Pouring of molten crude iron
Heavy section shop.
The ingots are coming from the electric furnace shop with temperature 700-900 ° C, then they have been heated to a temperature of 1100-1200 ° C in the heating wells, and then rolling to a linear mill.
The feed of the heated ingot to rolling.
Cutting to a measured length.
The equator of the Earth could be wrap around by rolled steel 15 mm in diameter that was made on the Serov Steel Plant since 1999.
The Metallurgical Plant “Electrosteel of Tyumen.” was built in 2013.
The main raw material for the new enterprise is a steel scrap.
The rolling mill 370.
