AVG Siderurgia



You're in Business AVG Steel






The Steel Mill was the first Business Unit of the Group. Located in Sete Lagoas, along the BR040 Highway, the Steel Mill produces every day over 750 tones of nodular and grey pig iron. The Industrial Plant has 02 Balst Furnaces and over 260 direct collaborators..

 

The Steel Mill has very strictly regulations for selecting it suppliers, specially for charcoal. These regulations include checkin the tax payment records of the supplier, certificate of origin and environment licenses. The charcoal unloading process is closely supervised by AVG, to ensure the quality and transport requirments are fullfilled by the suppliers.  

 

Invest in environmental and sustainable approach is the main priority in the Group. The Steel Mill invests in recyling programs to increase the efficiency of its porcess.


Industrial Unit Structure


 

The industrial unit composed of two blast furnaces with daily production capacity of 850 tons of pig iron and two unit termoelétrivca with a generation capacity of 4.8MW.

Total Area ............................... 388,805 m2

Total Built Area ........................ 18,728.53 m2

 


Blast Furnace I and II


 

 

- Blast Furnace I. ................. 6597.01 m2

A volume of 160m3, a daily capacity of 400ton;

Powered by skip, works in a continuous, two-wheel casting ingot of 163, four glendons composed of stainless steel coils for high efficiency;

Gas cleaning system, consisting of balloon, primary cyclone, set multiclone, venturi scrubber, dehumidifier and metallic filter press, which achieves high performance efficiency, thus ensuring gases within the highest level of cleanliness, generating pure gases for the thermoelectric particularly benefit the environment.

Preparation of feed and load the furnace with a system of automatic probe, improving the efficiency and performance.

The dedusting system, high tech, equipped with bag filters, developed by Delta Ducon, covers the areas of receiving charcoal and prepare the loads, given the strict legislation.

 

- Blast Furnace II ................. 8114.40 m2

A volume of 174m3, a daily capacity of 450 tons;

Powered by conveyor belt, traballha in continuous, two-wheel casting ingot of 144, four compounds glendons steel coils high yield;

Gas cleaning system consisting of balloon set of multi-cyclone, venturi scrubber, dehumidifier, decanter metallic filter press, which achieves high performance efficiency, thus ensuring gases within the highest level of clean, pure gases for generating thermal power, primarily benefiting the environment;

Preparation of feed and load the furnace with a system of automatic probe, improving the efficiency and performance.

The dedusting system, high tech, equipped with bag filters, developed by Delta Ducon, covers the areas of receiving charcoal and prepare the loads, given the strict legislation.

 

 






Thermoeletric(Power Plants) I


- Thermo Electric I. ........... 234.00 m2

Generating capacity of 2.2MW, with start-up in May 2009

The Thermoelectric are composed of water treatment plant (tec filter), boiler (Icavi), turbine (Turbimaq), generator (WEG) and condenser (CHS), electrical and instrumentation (Areva / Koblitiz).

With the use of gases generated during the production process in blast furnaces, first released in the atmosphere today, we generate electricity, bringing an increase in our market competitiveness and environmental benefits by reducing the volume of carbon monoxide emitted and reducing pressure on electricity generation using fossil fuels;

Our power plants are interconnected, and can export the surplus generated for the National Electric System Operator.

 






Licenses and certifications


 

- Operating license issued by SUPRAM revalued on May 30, 2011, valid for five years.

 

- Certifcada in ISO 14001:2004

 

- Recertified in ISO 9.001:2008

 


Capacity and Revenue


Installed capacity of 270,000 tons per year and annual revenues of R$ 300 million

 



Project



  • PCI - Pulverized Coal Injection

    - Acquired two injection units with a capacity of 120kg/ton of pig iron produced, bringing a reduction in total monthly consumption of 14.790 mdc, ie 177.480 mdc annually. - Fully automated system, consisting of a milling system (BTS), particulate capture for environmental control through bag filters (BTS) and injector and spears (Clyde). - Start of operation in the Blast Furnace II in November 2012 and in the Blast Furnace I in May 2013.
