Metalloinvest’s Ural Steel has mastered the manufacturing of chutes for blast furnace production. Individual elements of the path used to transport slag and pig iron from the furnace are formed in the modular casting facility. Plant specialists develop sketches and designs of the moulds for casting billets and the production technology, they also create wooden models. Based on that, they produce a sand mould, which is then filled with molten metal. The resulting chutes are delivered to the blast furnace shop, where they are assembled into a combined structure. At present, 47 types of chutes are required for Ural Steel’s casting blast furnace. Their total weight is over 250 tonnes.

Mass production is expected to deliver savings of up to 10 million roubles per year due to the low cost of products. Ural Steel is currently considering the possibility of launching full-scale chute production.
