When Corrosive Environment Is Your Nature

Another enterprise, which has recently received the industrial complex status is Bakor R&D Center. The company has been manufacturing equipment for industrial processes running in the most extreme conditions for 30 years.

For Industry around the World

The Bakor R&D Center has in ts arsenal 70+ grades of super-resistant fireproof and corrosion-resistant ceramics, lining sets, which are used in the inner lining of chambers in 200+ types of industrial furnaces, dozens of kinds of melting boilers (melters). The company also produces Russia's only industrial vacuum ceramic filters for companies producing and processing solid minerals.

Bakor products are in demand by manufacturers of aircraft engines and ships as well as by companies in gas, glass, mining, metallurgical, petro- and gas-chemical and other industries.

Its client database has over 300 companies including Severstal, EVRAZ, Norilsk Nickel, Rosatom, Phosagro, EuroChem and many others. In terms of quality and specification, Bakor refractory products are often superior to their European competitors, but cheaper. Therefore, the strongest export component is another advantage of the company. The products are successfully supplied to 16 countries worldwide: Australia, Austria, Belarus, Chile, Germany, India, Japan, Kazakhstan, Kirgizia, Peru, Macedonia, Mexico, Korea, Ukraine, USA.

CEO, Bakor R&D Center
"We're all passionate about our business and work for results. Our team accumulates its knowledge and direct individual achievements of employees to solving common tasks. We have the strongest professionals and young promising specialists the Bakor employees met at their thesis statements in specialized universities and invited to work at our company".

Technologies You Should Be Proud Of

Bakor developments help other industrialists to save resources and produce their own high-quality products.

For example, the ceramic disc filter is a new generation of vacuum disc filters used in dressing mills and the chemical industry. The filter elements retain the maximum amount of solids. Why does it matter? The result is pure filtrate and a significant reduction in water consumption in production as well as the return and recycling of filtered solids.

Another area of work is ceramic refractories. The Company produces materials for the lining of metallurgical furnaces and boilers as well as vessels for melting metals (melters). Metallurgists have special requirements to such vessels: the quality of metal obtained in melting depends directly on the right melter. It has to have a high level of erosion resistance without breaking down, to withstand temperature changes and not to interact with the melt.

Another promising development of Bakor is the ceramic impulse filter (CIF), which is used to clean gases from solid particles and harmful components in furnace systems for melting precious metals, solid fuel boilers, glass and basalt furnaces. Due to its high degree of purification, it is also used for incineration of waste including hazardous and radioactive waste. This filter reduces the concentration of particulate matter in the gas below 2 mg per cubic meter.

First Deputy CEO, Executive Officer, Bakor R&D Center
"We plan to double production by 2023. We are implementing an extensive program to upgrade our facilities and to re-equip research and development laboratories, are conducting design activities on development and introduction of new products to the market".

The equipment has to be smart

Now Bakor is seriously thinking about digitalizing its production. The primary task is to "teach" your equipment to predict and prevent emergency stops, to advise employees when it needs repair or replacement of parts. For this purpose, the company will create digital equipment twins as well as mathematical models of processes that can predict the behavior of production under changing external parameters. All information collected as a result can be used, for example, in the design of new factories.
Anna Kuzmenko
Deputy Head of the Moscow Department of Investment and Industrial Policy
"More and more Moscow enterprises receive the industrial complex status, so that they can claim significant tax benefits.

Both new and long-established enterprises can become an industrial complex, but for this they have to meet certain requirements. Investments in the development of production within five years shall be at least RUR 106.3 m per hectare of the production area, and the annual revenue of at least RUR 362.1 m per hectare. Buildings shall be used for industrial production, and the building area shall be not less than 4,000 square meters per hectare. The salary of employees shall not be lower than the average monthly income in Moscow, what is also taken into account.

With this status enterprises save up to 25% of tax payments and get an opportunity of financial support - subsidies and investment loans under the Moscow Government programs. The profit tax for Moscow industrial complexes is 15.5% instead of 20%, the property and land tax is 50 and 20% of the calculated value, and the land rent rate is 0.3 of the cadastral value. The industrial complex status is assigned for up to 10 years and requires an annual confirmation".

Early 1980s
The company started its activity on the basis of the Central Task Laboratory of Phosphate Materials.
According to the decision of the authorities, the development of corrosive refractories and heat-insulating materials for industrial furnaces has been "moved" out of business in an independent entity.
The company developed and manufactured ceramic filtering elements by order of Norilsk Nickel, a mining and metallurgical company, and this was the beginning of research in the area of porous filtering ceramics.
The company launched the first ceramic vacuum disc filter, which became a landmark.
The company is in TOP 30 most dynamic high-tech companies in Russia.
