Adoptions and improvements of Continuous Steel Casting in India ( An Experience to share with Mr. S.N. Singh)

Introduction

In the last four decades, ever since continuous casting technology for solidification of crude or refined steel started millions of cusecs of water has flown down the river Ganges and so also millions of tons of steel has been produced albeit water in Ganges getting dirtier day by day while steel produced are getting cleaner and cleaner! 

OLD DILUTION PROCESS STAINLESS AISI 304 MAKING FAST TRACK & USUAL PROCESS STAINLESS STEEL, AISI 304 MAKING IN DILUTION METHOD

An Experience to Share with (Event having taken place in Dec. 1975): Performer- Mr. S.N. Singh
Location: - Alloy Steel Plant, Durgapur (SAIL)

 

Event:- Melting & refining of 54 tons Stainless Steel (AISI-304) in Record time of 2hrs 18min (tap to tap) against standard time of 6hrs!

Process followed:- Oxidation-Reduction, Alloying, Dilution and Refining.
