Imerys worked in partnership with Russian firm NTMK Nizshnly Tagil on a new blast furnace deep in the icy Ural Federal District. During the installation process, our team found a solution to warm up the inside of the blast furnace from -25°C to +25°C to provide optimum conditions for the installation of our Spraycast refractory solution. This favorable environment, coupled with our expertise, meant the solution was installed and reached optimum performance in record time and well ahead of schedule. With Imerys expertise and support, the NTMK blast furnace is now one of only two mills in the world to produce high-vanadium iron at a rate of 7,000 tons a year.
