The melting-foundry complex of VSMPO-Avisma has disassembled its Retek plasma furnace melting chamber.
This is the largest plasma furnace in the world.
Preparatory work lasted for 3 days.
Now the chamber has to be moved out of the shop. In the shop No. 41 the company will separate ferrous metal of the chamber from the stainless steel.
The Retek disassembly started on April 4. In a month and a half some 30% of metal structures weighing 140 tons have been dismantled. (Ukrainian metal)
