Nürnberg, (PresseBox) - A new long rolling mill from Siemens Metals Technologies has been brought into operation for Evraz Caspian Steel LLC, a Kazakh steel producer. The rolling mill is part of a new production location for the Evraz-Group in the town of Kostanay. It is designed to produce 450,000 metric tons of rebar per year for the construction industry in Kazakhstan and adjoining Central Asian countries. Depending on their diameters, the end products can be rolled in single, two-slit or three-slit mode.

Evraz Caspian Steel belongs to the Russian Evraz Group, an integrated steel, mining and vanadium business which is active in mining and metal production in Africa, Asia, Europe and North America. The rolling mill installed by Siemens at the Kostanay location comprises an eight-stand roughing mill, a six-stand intermediate mill with Red Ring stands in an HV arrangement, and a finishing mill with four horizontal Red Ring stands. All the rolling stands are equipped with a quick-change device. The diameters of the end products can range from 10 to 40 millimeters. The smaller diameters are produced in two-slit or three-slit mode.

The scope of delivery from Siemens also comprised a billet reheating furnace, including a feeder and descaling station, a quenching line, shearing systems, a 78 meter cooling bed, as well as machines for counting, bundling, tying, weighing and label printing. Siemens also supplied the fluid systems and a water treatment plant.
