Rourkela: Rourkela Steel Plant (RSP) has registered a new record in Steel Ladle Life in Steel Melting Shop-II department. The ladle life is not only highest in SAIL but also the best ever life achieved in India with Magnesia Carbon Bricks.

The plant scripted this record by clocking the highest ever Steel Ladle Life of 206 heats in a single campaign surpassing the earlier best Steel Ladle Life of 195 heats achieved in March 2020. The steel ladle management set was supplied by M/s. Sino-Global Sourcing & Supply Ltd. and M/s Aarya Metallurgical Pvt. Limited, Raigarh. The Ladle was recently taken down for relining. The significant achievement was made possible because of the dedicated and coordinated efforts of Refractory Engineering (Services) and Steel Melting Shop-II (Operation).

The endeavor ensured intangible benefits of enhanced Ladle availability and reducing refractory consumption. The effort is one amongst many such initiatives being undertaken by the enterprising RSP collective to reduce cost of production and further improve techno-economics of the plant.
