In the framework of reducing energy consumption in Avdiivka Coke Plant of Metinvest Group modernization of pumping compartment has been carried out in recovery shop № 2. As a result two outdated domestic pumps of the collecting main cycle have been replaced by Swedish pump GOULDS. The total investment value in the project is more than UAH 1.2 million.
New pump improves gasholders mode of operation in coke batteries №7 and №8, and its increased power and efficiency permits to reduce electric power consumption up to almost 300 kW / hour. In addition, the Plant gains electric energy saving at the expense of reduction of old equipment repairing. Use of new pump leads to improvement of working conditions and industrial safety by noise and vibration reducing.
