Zaporozhye Titanium production steps up

Zaporozhye Titanium and Magnesium Plant improved performance. It is the only company in Europe and Ukraine, which produces titanium sponge. The plant is part of Group DF. During the period from January to March 2015 the volume of issued of titanium sponge has reached the level of 2279.9 tons. The increase amounted to 49.6%. Thus not only increased the amount of products produced by the base, and the volume of its implementation. According to Vladimir Sivak, director ZTMC, shipments growth in real terms reached 76.4% and amounted to 2133.4 tonnes. Previous result amounted to 1209.6 tonnes.

This plant has reduced the volume of commodity produced titanium slag. In January-March 2015 the amount had fallen to the level of 1588 tons, a decrease of 36.5%. However, these figures are planned, taking into account the overhaul ore-smelting furnace for smelting slag. This repair is not the only one. In order to ensure the smooth operation of the plant for a period of several capital repairs were carried out from January to March. The funds spent on them amounted to 7.9 million. UAH. Repair work touched the power line, electrolytic, decanter centrifuges and other objects.

A little earlier in the light of the Zaporozhye plant plans indicated that the production of titanium sponge will be increased by 30.5%. The final figure thus reach 9400 tons. This is the result of a collective agreement provides ZTMC between management and workers of the enterprise structure. Among other things, the agreement stipulates the possibility of a number of capital repairs to the main shops of the plant. The plans indicated the imminent improvement Electrical overhead traveling crane, installed on the territory of the melting charge and raw materials. Also planned capital repairs regarding the redistribution of coke drying in a department for the production of titanium tetrachloride and titanium slag. Repairs will affect plant producing titanium sponge and magnesium. There will be work to restore the separation furnaces, stoves Recovery, magnesium electrolyzers. Be repaired and the furnace heating, stationary magnesium crucible furnace, mixer sludge-electrolyte mixture.

The scheduled task is to repair the casting vacuum-arc furnace, installed in the workshop, which produces titanium slabs and ingots. Overhaul affect and ore-thermal furnaces 1 and 2.
