- The Process
The purified Ferro alloy is subjected to intense heat and melted to preserve homogeneity. Induction and electric furnaces are used for this purpose. Once the material is fully melted, it undergoes a series of refining processes such as decarbonisation and ladle refining to obtain material that satisfies international standards of quality. It is then cast into semi-finished forms, usually into thick slabs that serve as raw material for the next stage of production.
• One electric arc furnace & 10 induction furnaces for melting.
• Matching capacities of AOD converters & ladle refining furnaces for alloying & refining; continuous slab casting & billet casting.
• Auxiliary facilities include Ferro-chrome (FeCr), Ferro-manganese (FeMn) and Silico-manganese (SiMn) production and Air Separation Units to produce Oxygen and Nitrogen for captive consumption.
• A captive railway siding has been proposed.
