Raw materials used:

Carbon disulphide (CS2) Ethylene Diamine (EDA) Caustic soda (NaOH) Manganese sulphate (MnSO4) Zinc sulphate (ZnSO4) Sodium lignosulphate (SLS)

Hexamethylene tetramine (HMT)

Production process

Production of D-14 First chilled water is poured into the reactor Then CS2 and EDA are added into the reactor. EDA is added in two lots- 1st lot is added with Caustic soda. And 2nd lot is added with CS2 Caustic Soda is added in 3 lots- 2 lots solo and 3rd lot with CS2 And then excess CS2 is removed through distillation process. Thus D-14 is prepared Production of M-22 Initially there is water present in another reactor. In this reactor the D-14 is poured with MnSO4. MnSO4 is added in 2 lots- 1st lot is the heated lot added solo, 2nd lot is added along with D14. And then the reaction takes place. ZnSO4 is then added to the reaction so that it is not reversed. This is how M-22 is prepared.

This M-22 has great moisture content, so to remove excess moisture M-22 is passed through Larox Pressure Filter, where its total solid content is adjusted to around 50% and moisture content is brought down to 52%- 54%. Preparation of Slurry The slurry is prepared by adding water and then stirring it well in the Reconstitution tank. Preparation of powder Now this slurry is poured in Spray Drier where small droplets are formed of it with the help of atomiser. Then Hot air (temp- 310 degree Celsius) is blown in the Spray drier which removes the excess moisture and reduces from 52% to 10%- 12%. This is how the powder is prepared. Finished Product:

This powder is sent to a storage tank SILO from where is sent to Rotary Vacuum Drier (RVD). Here the air and moisture is removed with the help of heating and then vacuuming. The moisture content here is reduced from 12% to less than 1%. Thus the finished product is prepared and sent to cooler for cooling and then further sent for packaging.

Production Layout: (approximate)

EDA + CS2 + Water+ NaOH = D 14

Precipitator: MnSO4 + D14 + Water = M22 Larox Pressure filter = M22 Moisture

Rotary Vacuum Drier: Powderair - Vacuum

Spray Drier: Slurry Moisture

Homogenizer (preparation of Slurry)

Cooler Blender (for packaging)

Fig 10


In this plant only 1 product is manufactured. But it is produced in different varieties. The main use of Mancozeb is to be used as Fungicide. It is used all over the world to prevent fruits & vegetables from fungus attack. This product is not used directly. A solution is prepared according to the need by mixing it with water in a certain proportion and sprayed all over the fields.


Logistics and Purchase: Here first the planning department plans the budgeted sales of the year. They inform the purchase department about the raw materials required to meet the budgeted sales and the Production department about the budgeted production to be done in order to meet the sales. The purchase department consults with the inbound logistics department to get the status of the present raw material and identify the gap between the required and available. The Production department co-ordinates with the logistics department for production process Production and dispatch: During the production period the samples are sent to the QA department for verification and testing. The final products samples are also sent for testing. After the approval by the QA department, only then the finished goods are sent to outbound logistics for further packaging according to the consignment. Now the consignment is sent to Sales department for further dispatch procedure. Production and Engineering Production department perform day wise production planning. Here Engineering department comes into picture as it has to provide daily preventive maintenance schedule so as to maintain a smooth working of production process. And in case if some breakdown takes

place, the production department issues a work permit (via SAP) to the engineering department (shift wise) which performs the required action and fix the problem. Usually Daily review Meetings are conducted to report and discuss the problems, breakdowns per day and to come up with the solution. And these daily Review meetings are further reviewed in Weekly Review Meetings and these meetings are further revised in Monthly meetings, based on which the budget is planned.

Material handling equipments:

Forklift trucks The plant is designed in such a way so that it can use gravity as an equipment to move materials from one stage to another. The plant is basically designed on gravity.

DCS- Digital Control System

DCS system is used in controlling all the activities of the production process through computerized software. All the vessels and reactors are controlled through this system. There are 4 operators handling this system. The pressure, the heat, the material entry, its exit, etc are controlled by this system. All the similar activities are grouped together in order to simplify the process.

Following is the main activities of warehouse: To maintain mini/max level of inventory To make procurement plans for imported and local raw material.

Coordinating Raw material inventory with the purchase department To ensure safe operation in ware house.
Adherence of Customs (SEZ) laws. To update and maintain all the documents.

Timely dispatch of material according to marketing department. To maintain proper housekeeping in warehouse. Coordination with other department to ensure smooth functioning. Shifting of FG from plant to warehouse and stacking to the Godrej Racks.

MODE OF DISPATCH Mode of dispatch is based on two types of sales made by the Indofil are as follows:Note: 90 % to 95% of finished goods are exported.

For Domestic sales- Road transportation For Export sales- from Dahej plant to Mumbai Port by Road transport and from there to different countries through ship vessels.

Sources of mode of dispatch



Documents required: Commercial invoice Shipping bill Certificate of analysis LR copy (lorry Receipt) Gate pass 402 form for border crossing

Details of commercial Bill: Party name L C no. Material description Shipping mark Container no. Seal no. Batch no. Price Exchange Currency

The invoice generates from the Marketing Department at the Head Office. From there it is sent to the Plant and the invoice number is generated here. Along with that other relevant details are also generated at the plant, namely:

Date of dispatch Batch number Shipping mark Consigners name Container number Purchase order number L.C. number Gross weight Net weight , etc

This invoice is then verified by the custom office in order to fill the shipping bill, which is generated there. These documents are then given to the driver of the container along with the Certificate of Analysis and a 402 form. Driver gives these documents to the Main SEZ gate in order to clear the container out of the gate. The officer here checks the documents and makes a record at the gate and let the vehicle pass after verifying them. After getting cleared from the SEZ gate the container moves towards Mumbai Port where it is unloaded at a place known as Buffer until the booked ship vessel arrives. Before loading the container into the ship, all the documents are checked and verified and then the shipping bill is endorsed by the Custom authority and the container is ready to get loaded. Now the ship takes the consigned container to the consigner.

The forklift places the 1 pallet at a time on the rack of ASRS, from where the pallets barcode is read by the machine. Then the machine lifts up the pallet from the rack and places it on one of the shelves which is empty automatically. This new FG pallet is recorded in the software used by the ASRS and the entry is made of the new finished goods. The bar code on the pallet contains all the required information such as products specification, its manufacturing date, expiry date, etc. So when the barcode reader reads, it makes the entry.
