Mechel’s Izhstal Overhauls Rolling Mill 450
Russian miner & steel maker Mechel Group’s Izhstal PJSC has completed a major overhaul of rolling mill 450 in Udmurt Republic in Russia, which produces more than 30% of the total volume of rolled products produced by the plant. The specialists strengthened the metal structures, replaced the worn out parts and assemblies, restored the refractory protection of the inner space of the heating furnaces of the mill, and repaired the hydraulic and electrical systems. Much attention was paid to the state of power equipment, including the main drive of the finishing group of stands.
Mill 450 produces round, square and strip sections from the entire range of steel grades smelted by the plant, including special ones. For 5 months of this year, 57 thousand tonnes of metal were rolled on it, which is 6% more than last year. The mill's products are shipped to Russian and foreign automobile and machine builders.
