Chernye Metally


The second issue of “Chernye Metally” journal (2017) contains the most of its conventional sections. It is opened, as usual, by the sections “Iron and steel news of the world” and “News of metallurgical companies”.


The section “Ironmaking” contains two discussion articles that will be surely interesting for the readership. P. Schmöle from thyssenkrupp Steel Europe observed the future of blast furnaces and concluded that it will be tightly connected with lowering of carbon dioxide emissions. I. Schenk and H. B. Lüngen from Leoben mining university (Austria) and VDEh Steel institute analyzed the potential of putting into practice the iron direct reduction and reducing melting processes at European plants; it was suggested that these processes can be an alternative for blast furnace practice, but they were recognized to be not sufficiently effective meaning CO2 emissions.


The section “Steel making” presents the potential of the German and Austrian affiliates of Primetals Technologies in the field of modernization of electric arc funaces and putting into operation of Melt Expert system for adjusting of electric arc furnace electrodes.


The section “Rolling and metal forming” in this issue displays the results of modernization of the cold rolling shop at Outokumpu Krefeld plant in Germany. Realization of this project will apparently strengthen this company's positions in the European market of quality steels. Another publication in this section describes the method for calculation of technological parameters of steel heavy plate straightening at the eight-roll machine. This method was developed by Prof. V.N. Shinkin from the Moscow Institute of Steel and Alloys.


The issue also includes publications in the following sections: “Power engineering and ecology”, “Steel as material”, “HR policy and labour protection”, “Economics and finances”.
