Iron & Steel
Iron & Steel is a core sector industry and its demand is strongly linked to the overall level of economic activity in the country. Castings are important for the manufacturing industry whereas reinforcing bars are vital for the construction industry. Steel bars – plain or twisted in sizes ranging from 10 mm to 32 mm are widely used in RCC and buildings. ACEMANBAS sets up steel plants and foundries for iron and steel products.
Iron ore lumps, coke, limestone, dolomite and other raw materials are charged in a blast furnace where hot air is pumped to melt iron and fluxes. The molten metal when cooled and solidified is called pig iron. Molten metal from the blast furnace is purified to reduce impurities and then cast into semi-finished forms such as billets, slabs, etc. by continuous casting.
Mini Steel Plants
Scrap/Sponge Iron, fluxes, Ferro-alloys are melted in an electric arc/induction furnace and refined to control the carbon, phosphorous content. The liquid steel is cast into semi-finished products such as billets, slabs, etc. by continuous casting.
Steel Rolling Mills :
The billets and slabs are reheated and rolled into finished products – long products (bars, angles, structural) and flat products (HR plates, strips, coils). HR coils can be further cold rolled to form CR sheets to be galvanized and used by the industry.
Iron & Steel Foundry :
Castings are widely used in Electrical, Automotive, Railways, Material handling, Pumps & Valves industry, etc. We set up fully mechanized iron and steel foundry for mass production of castings to meet the needs of the engineering industry. The foundry we set up takes into account international emission and pollution norms with environmental implications and strives to adopt eco-friendly technologies especially using electric or gas-fired melting furnaces.
