NKMZ realizes shipment of unique equipment to Ferrexpo Poltava Mining

Novokramatorsky mashinostroitelny zavod (Kramatorsk, Donetsk region) initiates the shipment of the second domestically-produced, unique (in regards to design and implementation) ring-type cooler for iron-ore rolled briquette. This high-technology machinery is designed for the largest Ukrainian ore-dressing and processing enterprise Ferrexpo Poltava Mining that holds the leading position for these products at the former Soviet Union market.

Until 2013 the pelletizing factory of Ferrexpo Poltava Mining applied the only effective technology and equipment available in Ukraine and CIS countries based on US system «grate – pipe furnace – ring-type cooler». This equipment has become obsolete and therefore NKMZ specialists offered ring-type cooler of their own design to the miners. Compared to equivalent foreign equipment this cooler consumes less gas and oxygen and has compact and environmentally-friendly design. Within six years of operation this highly-efficient equipment has paid its cost. The second cooler, produced for Ferrexpo Poltava Mining, is equipped with lubrication supply system that delivers lubricant into pallets bearing assemblies resulting in boost of operational efficiency.

Moreover, NKMZ regularly provides Ferrexpo Poltava Mining with spare parts and units to replace equivalents at foreign machines. It refers, in particular, to one of the main cooler’s component – pallets, forming circular area, to which the hot rolled briquettes are laid and which has slots for supply of cooling air. The pallets designed and produced by NKMZ significantly exceed the equivalents in regards to wear-resistance capacity.
