World Class Facilities
IISCO Steel Plant has roped in world class technology to create state-of-the art facilities at Burnpur. The facilities have been designed to produce best quality product with minimal environmental impact. The facilities include:
The plant has two Coke Ovens namely COB 11 and COB 10 and. The newly commissioned COB 11 is 7 metre tall, has 74 ovens, a coke dry cooling plant and a matching by-product plant. The plant uses dry cooling technology using inert gases, instead of the conventional water quenching to produce 0.88 MT of Gross Coke per annum of the best quality. Coke Oven Battery No 10 has a height of 4.5 meter with 78 ovens. It has the capacity of 17.2 tons of Coal pushing per day.
Two sinter machines with a grate area of 204 metre square produce super-fluxed sinter. Sinter usage avoids addition of raw flux in Blast Furnace thus resulting in improvement in energy efficiency and productivity.
With a useful volume of 4,160 metre cube the Blast Furnace “Kalyani” is one of largest Blast Furnace in the country. It uses high blast temperature, oxygen enrichment, high top pressure and pulverized coal injection technology to increase productivity.
