Hydraulic charging unit ‘HydroMech Top’ is the result of many years of work by DHM GROUP experts. The design of the new hydraulic charging unit incorporates the majority of modern technical solutions based on all current requirements for blast furnaces.
An effective operation of blast furnaces directly depends on an uninterrupted operation of its cast house equipment, including taphole drilling machines. DHM GROUP is one of the leading companies in the area of designing modern hydraulic taphole machines which meet the strict requirements for quality, reliability and automation of technological processes of blast furnace operations in the 21st Century.
To avoid cast iron cooling prior to its draining into the mixer or ladle and to ensure the effective aspiration of cast houses, the main and support troughs are covered with fixed and removable covers.
Removable covers can be lifted and moved by hydraulic manipulators, opening access for taphole machines. Using manipulators helps to fully cover the main trough and increase the safety of maintenance personnel. It also efficiently captures gas and dust through the aspiration system of the blast furnace cast house.
DHM GROUP designed a range of different models of manipulators which can be placed in optimum positions based on the individual environment of each specific cast house.
DHM GROUP Private Joint-Stock Company is one of the leading companies in the CIS countries providing integrated engineering, manufacturing and start-up services for modern equipment in the metallurgical industry.
