The article presents information on blast furnaces of Mittal Steel USA. The company started cooling C-6 furnace at its Cleveland plant in preparation for gunning of refractory material to shore up its lining. In addition, the company is idling H-3 blast furnace on the west side of the Indiana Harbor plant in East Chicago, Indiana. The furnace will return to production when business conditions demand its 2,000-tons-a-day output. Mittal Steel USA-Cleveland is a 950-acre integrated steel-making complex that can produce 3.8 million tons of hot- and cold-rolled sheet a year.
