Our company is one of the biggest process houses in India. The process house has the state-of-art machinery for processing quality fabric. MORE
The company has undertaken manufacturing sponge iron as the nucleus for setting up a wholly Integrated Steel Plant.
JCL is a pioneer in the country when it comes to Iron Ore Pellets’ production. Using the Grate-Kiln technology, we produce Iron Ore Pellets from Iron Ore Fines which facilitate the production of superior grade feed material for DRI and Blast Furnace which are otherwise rendered useless.
Once the Fines are wet grinded, they are made to go through Dewatering in which the fine sized concentrate is mixed with binder and other additives. The resultant is a number of green coloured balls that are formed in the Disc Pelletisers. These pellets are then heated, dried and indurated. Once done, these are then cooled and put in stock piles. Majority of the pellets produced are used in-house for the production of DRI. Using this technique, we optimise our resources and reuse waste material to maximise our output.
The production capacity of the Pellet Plat at JCL is 0.6 million tons per annum.
Sponge Iron or Direct Reduced Iron is produced by reducing Iron Ore (in the form of lumps/pellets) using non-coking coal in a rotary kiln. The coal acts as the fuel as well as a reducing agent and the Oxygen is removed from the ore to produce Sponge Iron. Since the reduction takes place in the solid phase only, the output is called Direct Reduction. The finished product has pores like a sponge due to removal of Oxygen, thus it is also known as Sponge Iron.
Sponge iron is formed through the reduction of iron ore to metallic iron through reaction with carbon in the form of coal at approximately 1100 degree Celsius. Sponge iron is also referred to as direct reduced iron, metalized iron, or hot briquetted iron.
Sponge iron is used in the iron and steel industry as a substitute for scrap in induction and electrical arc furnaces. Over the years, the shortage of expensive melting scrap has made sponge iron a significant raw material for manufacturing high quality steel.
In India, the abundance of Iron Ore deposits has led to its absorption by the Indian industry and use of ore lumps and fines has led to the country becoming the largest producer of sponge iron in the world.
