MMK Orders Danieli Q-MELT Technological Package for EAF Steelmaking
Danieli will supply Magnitogorsk Iron & Steel Works - MMK, a Metal-Expo regular exhibitor, with a new Q-MELT technological package for the existing, 180-ton EAF#2 at Magnitogorsk in Chelyabinsk region in Russia.
The Danieli Q-MELT package will allow a further decrease in OpEx for an already performing EAF, which is being charged with up to 40% of hot metal. The order also includes an oxygen injector and a set of post-combustors for optimized chemical energy utilization. The expected savings for the MMK EAF will be more than 2.5 USD per ton of liquid steel guaranteed, for a payback of 8 months only. The package will be installed during a planned EAF maintenance shutdown in Summer 2020.
The Danieli Q-MELT EAF package consists of a Danieli Q-REG electrode regulator, Lindarc laser off-gas analysis tool and Danieli Melt Model heat optimization package.
