Briquetting Process and Use of Binders

Briquetting Process and Use of Binders During the various stages of iron and steel production, a number of iron bearing waste by-products are generated. These waste by-products cannot be recycled back as such because of their fine particle size, hence the waste by-products need to be agglomerated. Further, in the present day scenario, stringent statutory …

Coke Oven Machines

Coke Oven Machines Coke oven machines are an integral part of any coke oven battery. These machines charge the ovens with the coal feedstock, push the coke from the ovens after coking, and feed it to the coke quenching process. In recent times, coke oven machines are acquiring a more prominent role in the coke …

Tundish Powder

Tundish Powder During continuous casting of steel, liquid steel is poured from ladle to tundish where its flow is divided to each strand of the continuous casting machine. The role of the tundish is not only to act as the dispenser of the liquid steel, but also it is the last major reactor where refining …

Hydrogen Fuel for Future Economy

Hydrogen Fuel for Future Economy Hydrogen is the fuel of the future. It is an energy carrier which can transform the present fossil-fuel dependent economy into a hydrogen economy and which can provide an emission-free fuel. It can be used in internal combustion engines or fuel cells producing virtually no greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions when …
