Identifying KÜMAŞ. • Raw materials • Dead Burnt Magnesite products • Final Products (Bricks and Mortars) • Customers • Quality Management and R&D Activities • KÜMAŞ as a partner
HISTORY • KÜMAŞ is the largest manufacturer and supplier of refractory products for steel, cement, lime and nonferrous industry in the Middle East. • Combining the highest quality refractories with exceptional technical assistance, our mission is to deliver the most cost effective refractory solutions. • KÜMAŞ is a fully integrated refractory supplier you can rely on • Founded in 1972 as a public joint-stock company, started to produce sinter magnesite from natural magnesite ore in 1976. KÜMAŞhas been continued to produce the world’s best quality natural magnesite sinter since 1976.
In 1990,KÜMAŞ completed the installation of its brick and mortar production facilities to become an integrated corporation and KÜMAŞ started to produce basic refractory materials from magnesite. • KÜMAŞ became a member of Zeytinoglu Holding in 1995 as a within the framework of privatization process. • Meeting the needs for furnace materials of iron-steel, cement, non-ferrous metals and glass industries in Turkey and abroad, KÜMAŞ represents the largest sinter magnesite and dolomite production capacity today in Middle East, with a total production capacity of 180000 tons/year. HISTORY
RAW MATERIAL • The raw material mines of KÜMAŞ are located within the triangle formed by the Provinces of Eskişehir, Bilecik and Kütahya, which have an estimated total reserve of 65 million tons of magnesite ore and dolomite ore . • The crude magnesite ore is transported to the factory by trucks after it is enriched in the ore enrichment plants at the mining area. • Crushing, sieving and separating by means of permanent magnetic separators accomplish the enrichment of crude magnesite ore.
MAGNESITE RESERVE 65 million tons of magnesite ore.
DEAD BURNT MAGNESITE • After the enrichment in the raw material mines, the raw magnesite is transfered to the dead burnt magnesite plant . • Then it is reprocessed in the ore enrichment plant installed at the factory to obtain a product of concentrated magnesite.
ROTARY KILNS • 110 meter length • 3.6m diameter • The concentrated ore is fired at a temperature of 1700-2100 oC in 2 rotary kilns, each with a capacity of 90000 tons/year,
DEAD BURNT MAGNESITE • The dead burnt magnesite is produced in 15 different qualities, which are recognized throughout the world where it is used in the production of High Quality Basic Refractory Materials, due to their high purity and high density. • Since 1977, KÜMAŞ has been exporting a large portion of its dead burnt magnesite production to countries such as Ukraine, Italy, Germany, Romania, Yugoslavia, India, Spain, Iran,France and to other countries.
DOLOMITE • KÜMAŞ also accomplished the production of first domestic dead burnt dolomite in Turkey in 1996. The dead burnt dolomite is used in the production of fired, pitch and resin bonded dolomite bricks. • KÜMAŞ achieved its own know-how production of Fired Dolomite bricks for Cement and Steel Industry with excellent specifications and targeted to be an alternative producer of this highly demanded product in the world.
IMPORTANCE OF HAVING RAW MATERIAL • KÜMAŞ is one of the few examples of Refractory producers who has its own raw material sources. • Having own raw materials brought us the advantage of Consistency,Repeatability,Strict Qualityand Cost Control on our production.
CONSISTENCY IN QUALITY • It is a widely accepted fact that, different sources of raw material causes fluctuations in the product characteristics in refractory materials. While most of the refractory producers buy their raw material from different sources depending on the price and availability, KÜMAŞ has its own raw materials and this has been the determining factor of success for KÜMAŞ. • We consider consistency for refractory products as the main parameter, which we focused on in order to achieve long lasting applications and precise campaign programming for our customers.
