Developments at the R&D centre

  • Gaseous film burners, These burners have been commercially successful and are giving a saving of upto 16% compared to the conventional burners.

  • Gas Heating Elements
     which can retrofit any heating elements (electric energised) application upto 550°C temperature. This technological innovation of Gas Heating Elements has won the ‘First Prize’ for the ‘Best Technology’ during Techmart’99 India International Trade Fair (IITF’99). The gas heating elements also bagged the ‘EXCELLENCE IN TECHNOLOGY’ from CII 2003.
  • High velocity burners at this facility that can be energised by any kind of liquid and gaseous fuel. These burners are being used in Reheating furnaces and tundish preheaters throughout the country.
  • Low calorific value burner (Main & Pilot Burners): These burners are being used in integrated steel plants around the world for various application

  • Regenerative burner :
