Success Story

Blast Furnace Repair to Boost Iron Production in Ukraine

Ukraine Blast Furnace repaired by Calderys

In Eastern Ukraine, Calderys helped a leading steel producer to modernise their blast furnace (BF) against all odds. Learn how Calderys helped their customer to overcome logistical challenges to achieve two key goals:

  • Rebuilding and expanding BF productivity
  • Reducing coke costs

The BF relining project involved installation of world-renowned Calderys SPRAYCAST refractory by manual shotcreting from the lower stack up to the armor plates. Two platforms inside the furnace were installed for efficient and on-schedule installation.
