Chernye Metally


The 3rd issue of “Chernye metally” journal (2018) includes the most of its usual sections.


The first article was prepared by the specialists of Primetals technologies; it observes the possible simulation of the process of direct iron reduction without carbon dioxide emissions, based on usage of regenerated hydrogen. Expected power consumption is calculated. The authors presented in this paper their vision of general transition of the iron and steel industry to digital technologies in the framework if Industry 4.0 initiative.


The specialists of the National University of Science and Technology “MISiS” together with Taganrog Metallurgical Works displayed the results of usage of hot-briquetted iron (HBI) in charge materials, what is estimated as a good alternative to cast iron and expensive metal scrap.


Actual problems modernization of continuous caster mould undertaken by SMS group at the works of Tata Steel in Ijmuiden were displayed in the section “Continuous casting and foundry production”. E. Yarovaya and her colleagues investigated the efficiency of management of technological processes in foundry, taking into account the basic qualimetric principles.


Another paper in this issue presented by Primetals Technologies is devoted to the new possible ways for control of strip motion, allowing to decrease the number of technological downtimes and to improve geometric strip quality and precision.


Z. Portnaya and E. Tsirulnikov published the report about the XI congress of rollermen that has taken place in Magnitogorsk in October 2017.


“Tube making” section includes the paper about mastering of production facilities at 10-45 tube cold rolling mill in Pervouralsk. The mill was designed by VNIImetmash institute, and the technology was developed by Ural Federal University. High stability and productivity of tube rolling process were achieved. Another article presents brief information about current operating parameters of helical rolling mill at Vallourec plant that is specialized in prodiction of high-strength steels of premium class.


The issue also contains the papers in the sections “Surface coating and processing” and “Economics and finances”.
