All about the profession Metallurgist

The thesis “All professions are important, all professions need” remains no less faithful than at the time of their appearance. However, it is necessary to take into account the nuances of a particular activity. It is useful to know in general terms and all about the profession of metallurgist, about his activities.

What is this job?

From the very beginning it is worth saying that the profession of metallurgist is very ancient and modern at the same time. Already in the “gray-haired old old” people could not do without melting metals. And a number of products created in the past amazing even our contemporaries. But at the same time, the metallurgy of the XXI century cannot do without extremely advanced technologies. No one for a long time, for example, is not limited to visual control of metal melting – the process is controlled by the most complex devices.

But Description of the work of the metallurgist is unthinkable and without specifying its huge, incredible importance. Courage of flyers, the insight of statesmen, the original plot moves of writers and scenarios, cunning intentions of military leaders – all this is inconceivable and has no value, if there is no metal. Products will disappear in the trading network (and the trading network itself) will gradually dislike and all buildings will collapse and collapse. It will not be possible to cure a runny nose, nor send a letter (both on ordinary and email), nor sew clothes or learn the weather forecast, nor grow a crop or build, repair the house. All civilization will collapse, no investments, political technologies and other of the same row will help.

List of specialties

Describing the most necessary metallurgical specialties, it is worth warning that they are all included in the list of harmful works in any country. The difference is only in who deals with and how tightly contacts with the most dangerous factors when weaving the metal. It is customary to allocate especially main metallurgists. These specialists are the main coordinators in production and relate, rather, to the controlling.

However, it is for this reason that they are obliged to deeply and comprehensively understand the technological nuances.

It is customary to divide the metallurgists on specialists in the field of ferrous metals and in the field of non-ferrous metallurgy. It is so different specialization that the transition between them is extremely difficult and requires high-quality retraining.

It is also worth noting:

  • Stelevarov (directly performing basic operations when smelting steel)+

  • Madillers (engaged in the smelting of various types of metals)+

  • Operators of mining furnaces (monitoring for timely removal of waste)+

  • Distortiers (responsible for the distribution of liquid metal or alloy forms)+

  • heighteners (engaged in the preparation of furnaces to work as a whole, and not only the heating themselves is a whole art)+

  • crane machinists (moving hot metal on the workshop more difficult than any construction products or large blanks on ordinary production)+

  • engineers in the field of metallurgy (they are engaged in improving efficiency, creating new technologies, environmental protection and so on).


Chief Metallurgist:

  • Manages the whole technological process as a whole+

  • Supports the provision of technological standards and standards, jobs+

  • Busy study of promising technologies that increase overall efficiency+

  • Coordinates the creation of design and engineering documentation+

  • Calculates the main technological parameters of production+

  • Defines the main operating modes and optimal booting of jobs+

  • Prepares for launch new and reconstructed production facilities+

  • Coordinates scientific and practical and theoretical studies on an entrusted object.

Prudent Steel:

  • Prepares basic tools and equipment to smelting+

  • Prepares materials to refill furnaces+

  • puts in order workplace+

  • Helps change electrodes and lining a melting furnace+

  • Breaks and funnels in the process of work+

  • Cleans the chalk (self or with other people himself).

Player ferroalloys 6 discharge:

  • manages preparation and loading in the stove+

  • gives instructions how to use electrodes which mode of operation to set+

  • Watches equipment, evaluates its serviceability+

  • Picks up test+

  • Documentary accounting on the results of melting+

  • Determines how much the energy should be consumed for an hour and to be processed by the charge+

  • Corrects the stroke of smelting if necessary.

Requirements for work

The specifics of working at metallurgical production makes such qualities as physical strength, endurance and resistance to temperature drops. Only people who have solid will and full self-discipline will be able to fulfill their duties. Of course, carefulness is important to small. Any nuance may entail very unpleasant consequences for both working and enterprises as a whole.

Even if it costs without accidents and injuries, sometimes serious economic damage appears.

It follows that the responsibility in the metallurgical sphere is no less than in aviation, in railway transport, in petrochemistry or detective investigations. And for a number of professions – even above. Metallurg should be decisive, and in some cases he will have to take responsibility, without waiting for the decision to be made by the leaders. This work categorically does not fit:

  • When problems with the musculoskeletal system+

  • with neuropsychiatric violations of any kind and degree of severity+

  • For patients with blood circulation and blood formation disorders+

  • For people with hormonal and cardiovascular disabilities+

  • With any disadvantage with respiratory authorities, liver, vision, hearing, smelling+

  • with neoplasms (even benign 100%).


Preparation of metallurgists are engaged in:

  • Misis+

  • Lipetsk Technical University+

  • Technical University Samara+

  • Don Technical University.

Stelevarov prepare in Lipetsk and Magnitogorsk Technical Universities. In Lipetsk, you can also become a loafer of ferroalloys. Secondary special training in the field of metallurgy are engaged:

  • Vladikavkaz Mining and Metallurgical Technical School+

  • Metallurgical College (Lipetsk)+

  • Profile technical school Novokuznetsk+

  • South Ural Multidisciplinary College+

  • Krasnoyarsk Industrial and Metallurgical Technical School+

  • Novosibirsk Technology College+

  • Oski Machine-Building College+

  • Polytechnic College Syzran+

  • Metallurgical College in Taganrog+

  • Machine-building College in Tula+

  • Machine-building technical school Rubtsovsk+

  • Industrial College of Zlatousta+

  • Volkhov Aluminum College.


The income of the metallurgist engineer in Russia is most in the Magadan region. Until taxes it is about 150 thousand rubles. The Amur Region that took the Second Honorary Place has an indicator of 75 thousand. Next go:

  • Irkutsk (70)+

  • Kemerovo (66)+

  • Krasnodar (50)+

  • Ryazan (35)+

  • Samara and Saratov regions (30).

For comparison, steel revenues on average are:

  • Bashkiria – about 900 thousand+

  • Ivanovo region – 744+

  • Lipetsk region – 680+

  • Samara region – 377+

  • Tula – 330+

  • Udmurtia – 140+

  • Voronezh region – 135 thousand.
