Rourkela, Nov 22 (LocalWire) The 2nd Stream of Oxygen Pressure Reducing Machine Station (PRMS) used for simultaneous blowing at Steel Melting Shop – II was inaugurated at Rourkela Steel Plant.
It may be noted that the Oxygen PRS (Pressure Reducing Station), with a
capacity of 84000Nm3 per hour, has been installed to meet the demand of
simultaneous blowing of two convertors at SMS-II.
It is worth mentioning that one of the streams i.e.
Stream B of theOxygen PRS had got damaged in June 2015.
As a result only one PRS was available for Simultaneous blowing.
To improve the reliability and ensure uninterrupted blowing at SMS-II the 2nd Stream was revived at a
cost of Rs 1.6 crore.
The erection, installation and commissioning was completed by M/s LIL
in close association with Oxygen Plant.
The logic and interlock was implemented by Instrumentation department. The job was carried out in phases so that SMS-II production is not affected.
