Topic : How to increase productivity of steel at zero electricity cost by using the latest innovation in Silica Ramming Mass
Abstract: We have developed a product which is a breakthrough innovation in increasing the lining life of a patching through ramming mass. We guarantee 25% more lining life (number of heats) than any other silica ramming mass in the world. The increased heats help in reducing the patching cost directly. When the lining of ramming mass erodes gradually, more liquid metal output is generated through the furnace. Our material is designed to sustain longer at such expanded state of furnace thereby allowing maximum liquid metal output at the latter heats. This extra production is without any additional electricity cost and results in massive savings to an induction furnace. A 25 Ton induction furnace increases their productivity by 4% and saves more than ₹2.5 crores per annum by using our ramming mass.
