Customer profile

Shougang Jingtang United Iron & Steel Co., Ltd


The Shougang Jingtang United Iron & Steel Co., Ltd. with an annual steel output of about 10 million tons of iron and steel is located in the Caofeidian Industrial Zone of Tangshan City, Hebei Province.

Project information

For the two 5500 m3 blast furnaces a blower station is necessarily set up. Three axial-flow BF blowers (two in operation and one stands by) are installed inside the blower station. The maximum air volume of the blowers is 10000 Nm3/min and the air pressure at outlets is 0.65 MPa(a). Three 60MW High Voltage motors, the largest ever installed in China, are provided from Siemens Large Drives to drive the giant blowers.

Higher efficiency and less maintenance. And an optimum plant availability. We save a lot of OPEX costs for the blast furnace blower.
