Mechel Group’s Yuzhny Kuzbass Coal Company has celebrated the 20th anniversary of the commissioning of the Krasnogorskaya processing plant. 40 million tonnes of coal has been processed by the Krasnogorskaya processing plant over 20 years. The factory began work in 2002 at the industrial site of the Krasnogorsky mine. The enterprise became the first and the only one in the Kemerovo region for the enrichment of anthracite used as a high-calorie energy fuel and as a raw material for ferrous and non-ferrous metallurgy. In the same year, the company's staff set the first record: with a design capacity of 130,000 tonnes per month, it processed 150,000 tonnes of raw coal. In 2003, after the reconstruction of the loading complex and the main production, the processing volumes at the factory increased to 1.8 million tonnes per year.Over the past two years, the factory has upgraded a number of equipment. We put into operation new centrifuges for effective dehydration of coal concentrate, a vibratory feeder, which ensures a uniform supply of raw coal to the enrichment process. New magnetic separators made it possible to reduce losses during coal enrichment in the heavy medium section. To reduce operating costs - heavy-medium wheel-type separators,replaced hydrocyclones, screens, updated pumping equipment. A centralized lubrication system has been installed on belt filter presses, separators, and a crusher.An automated process control system controls the enrichment process at any stage and allows you to quickly make the necessary changes.
