Luxembourg/Beijing, 22 January 2018. On Monday, the 18th of December 2017, at 19:16 local time, Shandong Steel Group Rizhao blew in their first Blast Furnace at a new production site which shall help to phase out older ironmaking facilities in the group. Just 26 hours later, the first hot metal has been tapped from the furnace for which Paul Wurth supplied top charging and slag granulation technology.
The current phase of construction consists of two Blast Furnaces with 5,100 cubic meters inner volume each. They become some of the largest BFs to be equipped with an original Central Feed type Bell Less Top® charging system. Furthermore, at each furnace, Paul Wurth’s INBA® cold water system with 2 dewatering drums will ensure reliable slag sand production.
The commissioning of BF2 is foreseen for summer this year.
Paul Wurth also designed the coke batteries for this plant project and delivers the SOPRECO® single oven pressure control valves and SUPRACOK™ L2 automation packages.
