No-Bell Top Charger for Blast Furnaces
- New compact design
- Simple Exchange
- No modification of steel construction or belt feeder system
- Low investment cost
- Decrease of reduction agent consumption
- Systematic, controllable distribution of material
Z&J Technologies' new compact Top Charger ensures the simple exchange of a furnace-top double bell for a no-bell top. The usual modification of the steel construction of the blast furnace necessary for such changes is no longer required as well as the modifications at the skip- or belt feeder system.
In addition to low investment costs, the economic advantages of a no-bell top can be benefitted from after a short time of reconstruction work. These advantages are the extension of the blast furnace operating capacity as well as a decrease of the reduction agent consumption due to a systematic distribution of material. The loads on the gearbox are minimized because the chute does not require any lowering- or lifting movements.
This ensures a failure- and maintenance-free operation of the Top Charger.
