The coke oven plant was erected and started its operation in 1996. Totally 120 (3

batteries) ovens are commissioned to satisfy the requirement of coke for blast furnace and sinter plant. In the coke-making process, bituminous coal is fed into a series of ovens, which are sealed and heated at high temperatures in the absence of oxygen, typically in cycles lasting 65 hours. Volatile compounds that are driven off the coal are collected and processed to recover combustible gases and other by-products. The solid carbon remaining in the oven is coke. It is taken to the quench tower, where it is cooled with a water spray. After that the coke is screened and sent to a blast furnace 1 & 2 and sinter plant 1& 2 for the process

4.1.4 SINTER PLANT 1 & 2

Sinter plant 1 having the capacity of 20 and sinter plant 2 installed capacity is 90 The total installed capacity of both the sinter plants are 1.3 MTPA. The function of the Sinter Plant is to supply the blast furnaces with sinter, a combination of blended ores, fluxes and coke which is partially cooked or sintered. In this form, the materials combine efficiently in the blast furnace and allow for more consistent and controllable iron manufacture Materials enter the sinter plant from storage bins. They are mixed in the correct proportions using weigh hoppers, one per storage bin, except for the return fines for which an impact meter is used instead. Weighing is continuous, as is the whole sintering process. The weighed materials pass along a conveyor to the mixing drum where water is added either manually or as a calculated percentage of the weight of material entering the drum. The moisture content of the coke is measured in the strand roll feed hopper and used to trim the secondary water flow rate. The mix permeability is also measured and used to modify the amount of water required.

The mix material is fed onto the strand from the hopper by a roll feeder. The bed depth is set and kept constant by adjusting the cut-off plate which is fitted with probes to sense the depth of material and automatically vary the roll feeder speed.

The quantity of material in the feed hopper itself is held constant by automatic adjustment of the feed rates from the individual raw material bins.


Sintering The raw mix is ignited by the ignition hood, which is fuelled by a mixture of coke oven gas, blast furnace gas and sometimes natural gas. The calorific value of the mixture and the set hood temperature are controlled. A separate control system is provided to maintain a fixed hood pressure by adjusting the wind box dampers immediately under the ignition hood. The sinter strand is a moving conveyor of hot sinter, which continues to cook after leaving the hood, where air is pulled from the sinter by a strand draught fan. An important part of the sintering process is burn-through. This is where the sinter layer has completely burned through its section and is detected by temperature probes under the sinter bed. Burn through should be achieved but must not occur too soon after the ignition hood. The draught on the strand is maintained at a preset value by controlling the main fan louvers from pressure measurements in the wind main. This governs the point at which burn through occurs. Sinter handling After the end of the strand, the sinter passes through a spiked roll crusher and the hot screens to the rotating circular cooler. A number of fans are usually used for cooling, and the speed of the cooler is determined by:

Strand speed Bed depth

The fines removed by the hot screens are conveyed to the return fines bin. After cooling, the sinter is passed into the discharge bunker. At this stage, the level is controlled by varying the outlet feed rate (usually vibros). The sinter then passes to the cold screening area, where it is passed through crushers and screens to produce particles in a specific size range. Sinter below the required size passes over a belt weigher and returns with the hot fines to the return fines bin. Sinter produced by the both the plant are hundred per cent utilized by the blast furnace 1 and blast furnace.

4.1.6 BLAST FURNACE 1 & 2



The iron ore, coke and sinter are reduced which simply means the oxygen in the iron oxides is removed by a series of chemical reactions. These reactions occur as follows:

3 Fe2O3 + CO = CO2 + 2 Fe3O4

Begins at 450 C Begins at 600 C Begins at 700 C

2) 2) Fe3O4 + CO = CO2 + 3 Fe O 3) 3) FeO + CO = CO2 + Fe

At the same time the iron oxides are going through these purifying reactions, they are also beginning to soften then melt and finally trickle as liquid iron through the coke to the bottom of the furnace. The coke descends to the bottom of the furnace to the level where the preheated air or hot blast enters the blast furnace. The coke is ignited by this hot blast and immediately reacts to generate heat as follows: C + O2 = CO2 + Heat Since the reaction takes place in the presence of excess carbon at a high temperature the carbon dioxide is reduced to carbon monoxide as follows: CO2+ C = 2CO The product of this reaction, carbon monoxide, is necessary to reduce the iron ore as seen in the previous iron oxide reactions. The limestone descends in the blast furnace and remains a solid while going through it s first reaction as follows: CaCO3 = CaO + CO2 This reaction requires energy and starts at about 875C. The CaO formed from this reaction is used to remove sulphur from the iron which is necessary before the hot metal becomes steel. This sulphur removing reaction is: FeS + CaO + C = CaS + FeO + CO

The CAS becomes part of the slag. The slag is also formed from any remaining Silica (SiO2), Alumina (Al2O3), Magnesia (MgO) or Calcia (CaO) that entered with the iron ore, pellets, sinter or coke. The liquid slag then trickles through the coke bed to the bottom of the furnace where it floats on top of the liquid iron since it is less dense. Another product of the iron making process, in addition to molten iron and slag, is hot dirty gases. These gases exit the top of the blast furnace and proceed through gas cleaning equipment where particulate matter is removed from the gas and the gas is cooled. This gas has a considerable energy value so it is burned as a fuel in the "hot blast stoves" which are used to preheat the air entering the blast furnace to become "hot blast". Any of the gas not burned in the stoves is sent to the boiler house and is used to generate steam which turns a turbo blower that generates the compressed air known as "cold blast" that comes to the stoves.

Step By Step Process Of Eof

Operating Procedure The entire process work carried out by operation department Solid metal Scarp charged from the top of the furnace by scrap charging crane. After the molten metal has been poured into the furnace through hot metal launder, the quantity will be by shift-in-charge. Now the total metal was melted by oxygen blowing through different kinds of equipments like, Super Sonic velocity Lances, Tuyeres on two directions and oxygen Injectors. By blowing the oxygen into the metal the carbon percentage (Initially in pig iron 4%) will starts to reduced. The carbon percentage reduced up to desired grade. For controlling the other factors the limestone, DRI also added with the hot metal for achieving the required grade of steel. After blowing of oxygen, the carbon percentage and temperature of the molten steel was measured for ensuring the grade. Later, the molten metal has taped through steel launder to the ladle. Finally the ladle addition material is added with hot metal. And that molten steel has transfer through a car to Ladle furnace for fine tuning the metallurgical properties of the steel


Molten steel in the ladle treated by the electric arc use of three phase graphite electrode is called ladle refining furnace. FOUR LADLE FURNACES, Capacity 1. Ladle furnace-1: 45 ton/heat 2. Ladle furtnace-2:65 ton /heat 3. Ladle furnace-3:65 ton /heat 4. Ladle furnace-4:65 ton /heat

Additive alloys 1. Lime; 2. 2.FeSi; 3 3. .SiMn; 4. 4.HCFeCr; 5. 5.HCFeMn

The ladle bottom has a porous refractory plug, which is connected to the argon supply pipe at the Ladle Furnace stand. The LF stand is also equipped with an addition hopper mounted on the cover and a lance for injection of desulfurizing agents Fumes formed during the operation are extracted through the cover. Molten steel treated in Ladle Furnace is covered by a layer of desulfuring slag. The graphite electrodes are submerged into the slag, which protects the ladle lining from overheating produced by the electric arcs. The ladle is perfectly earthed; the potential difference between the electrodes and the ladle creates the electric arc. The electrode regulation is done by means of arc impedance feedback which is calculated from the primary& secondary current and voltages of the furnace transformer. The electrode regulation system controls the power consumption of the furnace, which make s the electrode up and down movement when the electrode touches the molten steel(arc impedance varies). During the treatment process argon is blown through the bottom porous plug providing continuous metal stirring. Stirring results in distribution of heat produced by the arcs, chemical homogenization and desulfurization of the steel by the slag. BENEFITS OF LADLE FURNACE (LF)

Deep sulfur removal (desulfurization); Controllable reheating by electric power; Alloying; Temperature and chemical homogenizing; Non-metallic inclusions removal. Ladle Furnace process is used for refining a wide variety of steels. Hydrogen removal is not done


In the Tank Degassing method the ladle with molten steel is placed into a vacuum chamber, which removes the unwanted gases from the molten metal. There are two vacuum degassing units in Salem plant, which has capable of 65 ton as well as 45 ton ladles. The vacuum is created in the chamber by means of jet type steam ejector system. Ejector system which consists of nozzle and diffuser unit, in that nozzle is used to increase the velocity and decrease the pressure near the vacuum unit and the diffuser used to increase the pressure and decrease the velocity after the nozzle unit.

The ladle is equipped with a porous refractory plug mounted in the ladle bottom. Through the plug argon is supplied during vacuum treatment. The reaction [C] + [O] = {CO} starting in the steel under vacuum conditions causes stirring, which is additionally intensified by argon blown through the bottom porous plug. Argon and CO bubbles also favor the process of floating and removal of nitride inclusions and gaseous nitrogen. BENEFITS OF LADLE DEGASSING (VD, Tank Degassing) -Hydrogen removal (degassing) -Oxygen removal (deoxidation) -Deep sulfur removal (desulfurization) -Carbon removal (decarburization)


1) To remove N2 from steel, so that the formability is not affected. 2) To remove H2 from steel ,so that the prolonged annealing treatment is not required and also to prevent hair line cracking. 3) To improve cleanliness by removing O2 in the form of CO. 4) To produce steel of very low C content by transferring part of the refining from furnace to the degassing unit. 5) Homogenization of the bath. 6) Better chemical composition as per the customer requirement. PROCEDURE OF VD

The following procedure is commencing during treatment of ladle in degassing unit:

1) The ladle is transferred to vacuum unit and lowered into the tank. And the Argon line is connected. 2) When the flow is adjusted it must be visually confirmed that the porous plug has a good performance. 3) The tank is closed and the vacuum pumps are started .During pump down the behavior of the melt surface is to be observed through the sight port. 4) When the melt or slag starts boil up to the ladle lip , the vacuum pressure in the tank has to be increased a little by opening the flooding valve. 5) When the boil stops , the valve is closed and the pump down is continued. 6) The amount of pressure can be reduced with the help of 8 Steam ejectors and 3 Condensers. 7) When the melt or slag starts boil up to the ladle lip, the vacuum pressure in the tank has to be increased a little by opening the flooding valve. 8) When the boil stops , the valve is closed and the pump down is continued. 9) During vacuum treatment harmful gases such as hydrogen or nitrogen dissolved in the melt are pumped off. 10) The degassing time depends on the necessary time for removal of nitrogen or carbon to the required low content. 11) Based on a sample taken before or after degassing , further deoxidant and ferroalloys are added for final adjustment of analysis . 12) When the treatment is completed, the Steam ejectors are shut down in a safe , controlled manner. 13) Argon is disconnected and the cover is lifted and the tank or cover is moved into the position. 14) The ladle is taken out of the tank and it can be sent to ladle furnace to compensate the temperature loss during VD. 15) Finally it is transferred to the Continuous casting. hydrogen,


Analysis begins by placing an empty Graphite crucible on the lower electrode and pressing the loader button. The electrodes close and atom is purged from the crucible . High current passes through the crucible generating heat which drive off gases trapped in the graphite. This process is called out gassing.

Now the sample to be tested in dropped in to the crucible & a high current is again passed through the crucible driving off gases in the sample. The o2 released from the sample combines with carbon from the crucible to form CO & (small Co2). Any CO formed in this fusion is first passed through heated Copper oxide, which converts CO to Co2 which is then measured by the IR cell. Self calibration using International Standards. Because of its close association with the monitoring of deoxidant additions and the level of inclusions remaining in the steel product, Oxygen analysis is of considerable importance. Methods have been devised which require a sample to be taken followed by instrumental determination of Oxygen but the need for speedy and convenient method has lead to the development of electrochemical sensors which can be inserted into the melt SAMPLING Particular care has to be taken when sampling for Oxygen, because the Oxygen present in the steel is not in the form of dissolved gases when the material is solid but occurs as oxides of Aluminum or as iron manganese oxide and Manganese chromium spinels.Care has to be taken that the total concentration of Oxygen in the form of this oxides are spinels in the sample is representative of the solidified melt. DETERMINATION OF OXYGEN IN A SAMPLE The following possibility exists for the determination of Oxygen 1. 2. 3. 4. Vacuum fusion with reduction. Fusion under carrier gas with reduction. Neutron activation. Measurement of electromotive4 force which is in the melt.

For the first three of this a sample is required. VACUUM FUSION WITH REDUCTION The classical method for the determination of Oxygen is fusion with reduction under vacuum. The method comprises the use of an oil diffusion pump and a high speed gas collecting pump to maintain the vacuum, coupled with devices for loading individual samples through a lock. The mass of hydrogen produced from the reduction is obtained by changes in the thermal conductivity in the gases given off by the melt and the Carbon monoxide is detected by infra-red absorption. FUSION WITH REDUCTION UNDER CARRIER GAS A large crucible is moved up into an induction furnace through which purging gas phases. The carbon monoxide generated is purged from the furnace with argon and oxidized with Schutze reagrent to carbon dioxide. This is in turn determined by automatic colometric titration in a new development the carbon monoxide is measured by infra-red absorption in the gas mixture (immediately after leaving the furnace) and is traced on a recorder.

The deflections are continuously integrated and converted digitally Oxygen content. The Oxygen value is available 40s after the introduction of the sample with a total analysis time of 2 minutes. NEUTRON ACTIVATION The principle of this elegant method is as follows .Neutrons from either a neutron generator or a californium source are thermalized and used to irradiate a sample several grams in weight for 1 minute. The irradiate samples are then passed to a counting system where gamma rays produced by the following reaction are observed in the naturally decaying unstable isotopes.


The hot metal whose composition corrected in LRF is brought to the concast machine known as billet caster and bloom caster through ladles whose capacity is 45 T for billet and 65 T for bloom caster. Ladle is placed on the turret which has two arms the motion of the turret is controlled by PLC. Molten steel is poured continuously through a water cooled mould from a tundish via a control `valve' to regulate the flow, and then through a ceramic submerged entry nozzle into the mould. The outside of the steel starts solidifying in the mould. Water sprays further cool the steel `strand' as it leaves the mould. As shown in the diagram the strand is curved via a series of rollers through 90 and emerges as a horizontal slab. As it leaves the machine at this point it is now solid, and is cut by the LPG cutting system which is also controlled by the PLC.

Cpp2 start up power is fed from LBDS in cpp1. Unit 1 integrates three waste heat recovery boiler to produce the steam required for the unit 1 30 MW turbo generator. Both the power plant runs always in parallel with the Tamil Nadu Electricity Board (i.e. synchronized) . Depending on the demand of the company the power exported and imported. The power export and import is managed and controlled by the Main receiving substation (MRSS). MRSS is a centralized control station for the whole plant.


IRON ORE Our manufacturing facilities are located near the iron ore belt, which enables us to source low cost iron ore. Our iron ore requirements are partly met from our associate company VMPL and balance from NMDC and other suppliers having mining rights.

COAL To ensure a regular and reliable supply of coal, we have entered into strategic sourcing of coal through reputed traders / overseas mine owners based in Australia and China mainly on annual price contracts. We have also optimized the use of coal used in the Corex, coke oven and blast furnace plants thereby utilizing the coal and the fines completely . ZINC We are sourcing zinc from domestic supplier for manufacturing of value added galvanized products. The pricing of Zinc is highly correlated with international USD prices on London Metal Exchange.

LIMESTONE We use a blend of imported and indigenous limestone for steel making. Low silica limestone which is used for steel making is imported from UAE/ Iran. High silica limestone used in Corex is sourced indigenously.

DOLOMITE AND STEEL SCRAP The other raw materials used in steel making are dolomite and steel scrap. The entire requirement of dolomite is sourced indigenously. Dolomite deposits (equivalent to 20 years) are located in Lokapur (Karnataka) and Rayalachervy and Dronachalam (Andhra Pradesh) which are about 150-200 kms from the plant. The sourcing from these two locations ensures consistent supplies at any given point of time. Strategic tie-ups with key suppliers with yearly renewable option ensure reliable and consistent supply of dolomite. Scrap requirement is Met by recycling of scrap generated in house as well as by imports.

REFRACTORIES All refractoriness for Iron and Steel making are outsourced to the refractory manufacturers on a total management concept which includes quality, specifications, supply, inventory management, relining and repairs. We also have strategic tie-ups with key suppliers to handle the refractory matters of cast house, steel ladle, converter, slide gate and tundish areas.

POWER As on September 2005, our total power requirement at upstream facility was 183 MW. There will be an incremental requirement of 40 MW for the ongoing steel expansion project and another 30 MW for the proposed 62CRM complex. Our power requirement of 183 MW is currently being met partly out of our captive power plant and balance from JSWEL. We are in the midst of ramping up the capacity of 2nd captive power plant of 130 MW that is expected to be fully operational by March 2006. Thus, significant portion of power requirement will be met from captive sources and balance requirement, if any, will be met from JSWEL. At downstream facility, power is taken from MSEB and captive DG sets. We have2 DG sets of 3750 kw capacity each at Tarapur and Vasind.

WATER Water requirements of around 20 million gallon per day (MGD) for the proposed expansion of steel manufacturing capacity from 2.5 Mtpa to 3.8 Mtpa over the period of time is already been sourced from Tungabhadra Dam in Karnataka. The existing plant make-up and drinking water network have been considered as the source of water for the proposed CRM project. The water requirement will mostly be for cooling purposes with a minor part of the requirement being for drinking and other process needs. To minimize fresh water withdrawal from the source, recirculation systems have been envisaged for the various units. The treated make up and drinking water requirement for the proposed CRM project is estimated to be 145 m3/h.

COMPRESSED AIR Our requirement of compressed air for the proposed CRM project has been estimated at 86 Nm3/h. To meet this requirement, a compressor station would be provided where two units of water cooled rotary screw compressors Each of 45 Nm3/min at a discharge pressure of 7 kg/cm2

(g) will be installed first and the third one would be installed in future. One air receiver of adequate water holding capacity will be installed at compressor air station to cater to system surge.

NITROGEN, HYDROGEN AND COREX GAS Our nitrogen gas requirement of 1,510 m3/hr for purging in the bell-annealing furnace would be met from the existing nitrogen supply system. The necessary piping network will be installed for supplying nitrogen from existing network to the consumers after required pressure boosting. Bell annealing furnaces have been planned based on 100% H2 as protective atmosphere for ultra clean and bright CR strip. For this purpose, one hydrogen generation plant of about 400m3/h capacity having ability to produce99.9% purity H2 has been planned by us based on water electrolysis process. Cortex gas generated in the existing Cortex modules will be used for firing in the bell annealing furnaces and boilers. Suitable system for sourcing the Cortex gas from the existing gas holder will be provided.

LOGISTICS The manufacturing units are strategically located with respect to established ports well connected by rail and road networks. Imported raw materials for the upstream unit are transported in bulk in large sized vessels to Goa and Chennai seaports. Indigenous raw materials, for upstream and downstream units are transported by road and rail to the plants. Export of finished goods from upstream unit is done in bulk and break-bulk containers out of Goa and Chennai ports and from Mumbai and JNPT ports for downstream unit We follow a policy of outsourcing some of the key functions for greater efficiency and to lower the cost. The water management system for the whole plant, roll shop management system, bearing bank facility and lubrication system for the pellet plant have been outsourced.


Developed innovative technique to remove accretion in blast without using explosive. Elimination of lump in iron bearing materials to improve raw mix feeding at Sinter Plant and to reduce impurities fed into blast furnace by introducing screening system. In order to reduce the burning loss of hot coke while travelling towards quenching tower, an innovative mobile quenching facility was installed in the quenching car itself. This reduces ash formation and yield. By introducing oven door with auxiliary locking system, the cycle time of the quenching car was reduced. The coal throughput per oven was increased by charging optimum coal size and bulk density of coal and the cooking time. This resulted in enhanced coke production and improvement in yield besides reduction in coke breeze generation. Container shipment of wire rod to reach customer site with better shape and quick delivery.
