FERRO ALLOYS

Mining of ore is key to the integration process. Jindal Stainless has Chrome Ore open cast mines at Sukinda, Odisha to support 250,000 tons per annum capacity Ferro Chrome plant at Jajpur.

In the first phase of the Odisha project, Jindal Stainless has set up Captive Power Plants, Coke Oven Batteries and Submerged Arc Furnaces to produce Ferro Alloys.

As part of this project, 2 x 60 MVA furnaces, largest in India, with capacity of 150,000 tons per annum are already in operation and producing

High Carbon Ferro Chrome (HCFC). These state-of-the-art furnaces and the Briquetting Press have been supplied by SMS DeMAG AG, and Kopern Maco of Germany respectively. The waste heat of these semi closed furnaces are utilized to generate 13MW power

The Ferro Alloys complex also comprises of 1 x 27.6 MVA Ferro Manganese and 2 x 27.6 MVA Silico Manganese Furnaces supplied by Sibeltherm, Russia to produce 100,000 tons per annum. This complex is also equipped with modern de-dusting, pollution control and waste management systems.

STAINLESS STEEL COMPLEX

The Stainless Steel complex at Jajpur, Odisha has a current capacity of 1.1 million tons per annum

Stainless Steel Making

Stainless Steel melt shop complex has been designed and supplied by SMS SIEMAG of Germany and is based on liquid ferrochrome utilization along with hot metal from submerged arc furnace of Fe Alloys plant. Instead of solid ferrochrome, molten ferrochrome from the Submerged Arc Furnaces is directly fed and liquid steel is produced in EAF. The liquid steel is then properly mixed with chromium pre-melt in a ladle for subsequent operation in AOD vessel for making Stainless Steel as per desired specifications.

At scrap yard the charge is prepared from the stock of scrap and other raw material in the scrap yard. Charge mix is made according to grade of steel and charged into the Electric Arc Furnace (EAF) by over head crane from buckets.

In Raw Material Handling system, which is common to both EAF and AOD, all the materials added from over head bins are stored, weighed and used via conveyor belts as per requirement.

Hot Rolling

The 1 million tons per annum Hot Rolling Complex has been designed and supplied by Siemens VAI of Austria and consists of a 6-Stand Tandem hot rolling mill with a single-stand Rougher. The mill is equipped with latest technological equipment such as a fully hydraulic edger, long-stroke HAGC in all mill stands, L-block bending, shifting devices in conjunction with the Smart Crown® system and for superior profile and flatness control. This Tandem mill is designed to handle coil weights upto 36 tons. Stainless Steel plates will be extracted via the downcoiler area with a plate dividing shear and a plate piler. The plates will then be taken to the plate finishing area with annealing and cutting facilities.

The 300 tons per hour Walking Beam Furnace is designed and supplied by Five Stein of France. The furnace will utilise the Coke Oven Gas for heating of Stainless Steel slabs to optimise energy consumption thus reducing overall cost.

The production capacity of this mill can be increased to 3.2 million tons per annum by addition of a Reheating Furnace, a 7th Mill Stand and a Downcoiler.

Cold Rolling

The Cold Rolling Complex has been designed and supplied by Andritz of Austria and has a unique feature of In-line rolling with Annealing and Pickling lines which will result in reduced processing cost due to higher yield and productivity. The Hot Rolled Anneal and Pickle (HRAP) line with single-stand In-line rolling can produce 2E products along with HRAP coils with No.1 finish. The Cold Rolled Anneal and Pickle (CRAP) line comprising of 3-Stand In-line rolling can produce various thickness, grades and finishes. Both these lines can handle coil weight upto 40 tons.

An Air Separation Plant will supply gases such as Oxygen, Nitrogen and Argon. Lime and Dololime Plant will supply required quality and quantity of Lime/Hydrated Lime and Dolomite. In addition, the Jaipur integrated Stainless Steel facility is supported by a Central Raw Material Handling system and an in-house Railway network to facilitate inbound and outbound movement of raw materials and finished products.

The ideal food contact Stainless Steel for Kitchenware
Its unmatched advantages make it the best replacement for 200 and 300 Series in the cookware, utensil & gas stove applications.

Chromium (not Nickel, as is sometimes imagined) is the key ingredient for the Corrosion Resistance of Stainless Steel. Krome 16+ contains minimum 16% Chromium for high corrosion resistance

What is Kromel 6+

Kromel 6+ from Jindal Stainless is a branded Stainless Steel in coil form conforming to AISI 430 grade. It is a ferritic solution offering many advantages in the manufacturig of Cookware, Utensils & Gas Stoves.

Advantages of Kromel 6+

  • Superior thermal conductivity over 200 and 300 series Stainless Steels. This help in conducting heat more evenly than austenitic grades resulting in heating the food much faster and saving fuel in cooking
  • Excellent high temperature oxidation resistance upto 800°C making it less prone to scaling than austenitic grades
  • Expands and Distorts less than austenitic grades when heated due to low thermal expansion
  • Very good corrosion resistance due to high Chromium content. Hence, far superior to Aluminium/Aluminium alloys for diverse food media
  • No risk of delayed craking unlike austenitic grades
  • Costs less since it has no Nickel, Copper and has very low Manganese
  • Stable price
  • Brilliant & Lustrous aesthetic appeal
  • Its lower density leads to 2 - 3% more utensils of same size per ton of sheet compared to austenitic grades

Ease of Fabrication

  • Exhibits excellent deep drawability
  • Very well suited to all methods of forming Stainless Steels including bending, drawing, stretch forming and spinning
  • Easier to cut and work than austenitic grades
  • Requires less powerful machines for fabrication
  • Generates less tool wear
  • Comparatively lesser spring back than austenitic grades after cold forming
  • Higher yield in utensil manufacture

Krome 1 6+ fully conforms to international Standards for Food Equipment/ Contact Materials

  • American National Standard NSF/ANSI 51 (2007)
  • French Standard NFA 36-711 (April 2002)
  • French Decree No. 92-631 (8.7.1992)
  • European Regulation (EC) No. 1935/2004 (27.10.2004).
