Sponge Iron, Mild Steel Scrap and other alloying elements such as Carbon, Manganese and Silicon are melted in the Electric Furnaces to get the molten steel of the desired composition which is then cast into square cross-section semi-finished steel bars called as Billets in a Continuous Casting Machine (CCM). These Billets are then rolled in the Rolling Mills at a temperature above 1000 Deg C to make rolled products such as Beams and Channels, Angles, Rounds, Squares and TMT Bars. The Steel Melt Shop (Billet Plant) comprises of Induction Furnaces equipped with Continuous Casting Machine (CCM) for manufacture of Steel Billets/ Blloms ranging from 100 Sq.mm to 250 Sq.mm cross section. An expansion of the steel making capacity is on and the wok is under progress.
The metallic Iron obtained from Iron Ore or Iron Ore pellets by direct reduction in Coal based Rotary Kilns is called as Sponge Iron. The name sponge Iron comes due to the porous structure of the reduced Sponge Iron due to removal of oxygen from the Iron Ore (Hematite) structure, when observed through the microscope. The Sponge Iron along with MS Scrap is charged into the Melting Furnaces to get the Steel Billets.
LODHA THERMEX® TMT (Thermo Mechanically Treated) bar is rolled out in one of the most modern and fully automatic Rolling Mills and further processed in the world's proven "Thermex®" technology. The Thermex® TMT process involves 3 stages of treatment for imparting the superior strength and quality to the ribbed bars - Quenching, Self-tempering and Atmospheric Cooling.
