Steel Shot Works has completely autonomous production with absolutely independent communications, including telecommunication facilities, electricity, gas and water networks:
Charging division has sorting sectors, cutting area, area of reception and weighting of incoming raw materials on platform scales truck and by railway carriage norms. This division is equipped with electronic weight bin and bridge cranes with electromagnetic and grab lifts.
Melting division provides smelting of steel by 2 electric arc furnaces, where progressive methods of smelting, deslagging to achieve stable chemical composition were implemented, and where original technology of granulation of pouring steel is used, which allows to get the best continuity of granules with minimal loss of alloying elements. Division is served by a bridge crane and electronic weight bin, and also is added with its own closed process water supply system.
Heat treatment division is equipped by drying furnaces, screens of technological sieving of steel shot for programming individual regimes of thermal treatment depending on the grade, and also with aggregates of thermal treatment: second hardening for achieving homogeneous martensite structure with subsequent tempering to obtain the best performance features of abrasive. The aisle of the division is served by bridge crane with main and secondary lifts. Division has stations of process screening and station of final screening to get and accumulate finished commodities.
Crushing and grit screening division is equipped with biconical ball crushers, that allows crushing of any grade of shot with high productivity and with getting of maximum sharp grit edges to apply excellent abrasive features. After crushing grit is transported to grit screening area, which is equipped with the group of sequential vibrosieves. Feeding and crushing process as well as subsequent screening is also automated. This division is communicatively connected to heat treatment division with a purpose of imparting individual mechanical properties to abrasives in accordance with customer’s order.
