Start up of the new calendering line for the production of high strength conveyor belts at OJSC Kurskrezinotekhnika
On January 30, 2013, Kurskrezinotekhnika OJSC hosted the first of a series of planned presentations of the opening of a new calender line for the production of high-strength conveyor belts with representatives of the largest mining and metallurgical enterprises: Lebedinsky GOK OJSC, Stoilensky GOK OJSC, Mikhailovsky GOK OJSC “, Oskol Metallurgical Plant OJSC, METALLOINVEST Management Company LLC, NLMK Trading House LLC, as well as representatives of the Kursk administration and the owners of KRT OJSC.
This investment project provides for the construction of an industrial building and the creation of a rubber-fabric conveyor belt on its premises, with an annual output of 1,200 thousand square meters per year.
A distinctive feature of this project is a complex installation for the assembly of a conveyor belt blank and a specialized installation for the preparation of a heat carrier for vulcanizing presses, which is for the first time supplied to Russia, operating in an optimal energy saving mode. This will significantly reduce the specific energy consumption per unit of output.
After the successful implementation of the project, JSC “Kurskrezinotekhnika” will have modern equipment and advanced technology, it will be possible to manufacture conveyor belts that meet the requirements of international standards. And also, it will provide an opportunity for the development and production of conveyor belts for special operating conditions with a significant resource for reliability.
