Magnetic-impulse installations IM have proven to be a reliable tool for preventing materials from hanging, surpassing traditional pneumatic systems and electric vibrators in efficiency, simplicity and cost-effectiveness being in operation (see the reviews of NKGOK (ArcelorMittal Kryvyi Rih) #1, NKGOK (ArcelorMittal Kryvyi Rih) #2, Azovstal #2, Azovstal #3, Azovstal #5, Dnieper Metallurgical Combine, Alchevsk Iron and Steel Works, Yenakievo Metallurgical Plant).
In general, the installations IM replace previously used traditional systems. For example, at the sintering plant of metallurgical plant “Azovstal”, starting from 1993, hoppers and chutes have been equipped with magnetic-impulse systems based on installations IM. Up to the closure of the sinter plant in 2012, 12 installations IM were in operation there, and the use of electric vibrators was completely excluded.
At some enterprises, there is a joint operation of installations IM and traditional systems, while the latter are used as auxiliary equipment operating in sparing modes. For example, at OJSC Dnieper Metallutgical (Kamenskoye), after the introduction of installations IM on 12 charge hoppers of sintering machines, the previously operated pneumatic collapsing system was not dismantled, but continues to be used as an auxiliary system. The annual cost of the air consumed by the system has decreased, according to the calculations of 2006, by about UAH 300,000 (see review).
Implementation of installations IM on the hoppers of sintering machines and in front of the pelletizing drum in the sintering production of the U.S. Steel, s.r.o. Kosice allowed to reject the weekly blasting works to collapse the deposits of materials suspended in these hoppers.
At present moment, magnetic-impulse systems of arches collapsing based on installations IM are included in the projects for the reconstruction and construction of new sintering productions carried out by various design institutes.
MITEK carries out works on the further implementation of installations IM at various sinter production facilities.
