Optimization of production parameters in sms plant, welspun

Satyavolu, S (2014) Optimization of production parameters in sms plant, welspun. MTech thesis.



Welspun Steel Limited produces steel billets of various dimensions 30% of which are sent to produce Re-bars. WSL’s TMT is presently the second best TMT available for business and industry based constructions in the market after JINDAL’s. As per the Welspun Fellowship Program, the student has undergone a training period alongside doing the project in optimizing the production of the WSL plant in Anjar, Gujarat. The thesis details the findings and discusses the current issues that a typical secondary steel industry, namely WSL, is facing along with some theoretical suggestions. DRI + Scrap is the raw material in the secondary steel production in WSL. A conclusive study is conducted to check the tap times, just by melting DRI without the steel scrap. The results indicate a success and so a new method, posing a new set of problems though, to be experimented and researched on. Finally, sets of loopholes, neglected zones and bottlenecks have been identified all through the process of steel making and casting. Suggestions have been insisted and some of them were effectively implemented.
