Refractories contract for steelmaking converters in Arcelor Avilés and Gijón (Spain)

Since 2017, Alfran has a refractory reconstruction contract for all converters in Arcelor Mittal Asturias, both for its Aviles and Gijon factories. The main work consists of the simultaneous placement, from the bottom of the refractory lining, both of safety and of work. Additional works include, among others, the initial management of the refractory material in the reception and discharge, plus its subsequent distribution and organization in the warehouse, and the works of concrete shotcrete in the mouth of the converter. With the involvement of our Engineering Department, we are adopting new methods, solutions and means with the aim of reducing execution times, with less use of man hours, and maintaining excellence in the safety and quality of our work.
