VSMPO, a member of the VSMPO-AVISMA launched a new compressor station. She is in the place of the compressor number 2, which is valid since the founding of the company. The equipment installed previously become obsolete morally and physically. This has led to a number of unsolvable difficulties. For example, it was not possible to regulate the performance of compressed air in a wide scope. Accordingly there was a need for constant discharge into the atmosphere of substantial amounts of expensive energy. In the production process used nedosushennye compressed air. Its use has become the cause of corrosion, wear and tear, and sometimes break the pipeline.
Solving problems provided a modern centrifugal compressor. They create a wide range of debug performance. Obtaining the necessary dew points provide desiccant dehumidifiers. They use heat compression Assembly. Thus, there is no loss of compressed air discharged at the purging process. Dehumidifiers ensure the elimination of condensate. The control system adjusts the operation of compressors. Ensures a constant air pressure. The system calculates the required number of compressors for production needs volume of air. Unit energy recovery heat character increases the useful processing power utilization.
The new compressor station, said the General Director of Corporation Michael Voevodin. Compressed air represents one of the most expensive energy. You can make a comparison with electric. The cost of processes using compressed air above seven times. VSMPO expects to recoup the costs over the next several years. This will be achieved by reducing the energy consumption for production of compressed air. The reduction will be 35%, providing the increase of reliability of power production. Also reduced repayment period of financial investment. The cost of the project is 300 mln RUB.
Is and Japanese Osaka titanium company Titanium. Its representatives told about expansion of assortment of the produced titanium powder products. It is used in additive technologies. New powder represented as Tilop64. It is 90% titanium, 4% vanadium, 6% aluminium.
