Billet Plant

The main equipment is the induction furnace. Three electrical systems with 4 nos of crucible of 8.5T and two crucibles of 10T capacity each have been set up. The Induction furnace uses about 75% to 80% of DRI. These are essentially melting units for which good quality metallics are used. The plant is equipped with 2 nos of 20/5 T cranes to facilitate charging through magnet and liquid steel handling. Liquid steel from the induction furnace is tapped at about 1600oC and after necessary homogenization in the ladle is taken to the caster for casting. The Caster is of 4 mtr. Radius with 2 strands capable of casting 10 T metal in 25 minutes. The plant is also equipped with water treatment plant and emergency cooling water system
