A HARD EARNED HONOR FOR THE LADLE REFINING ROUTE OF ENVIRONMENT-FRIENDLY STEELMAKING
Electrotherm (India) Limited won the Ispat Agrodoot Award in the their “integrated iron-ore – induction furnace – LRF route of steel making” category. The “integrated iron ore – IF – LRF” process is a pioneering process of refining steel which reduces the sulphur & phosphorus levels in steel thus enabling production of high quality steel. The induction based LRF process has empowered steelmakers to produce Quality Steel at par with primary steel producers.
With its commitment to producing Quality Steel at the most competitive price, Electrotherm (India) Limited was one of the foremost companies in western India to adopt this process and hence went on to achieve excellence in production, product development, and trendsetting innovation, which has been duly acknowledged with the conferment of this prestigious award.
ET TMT -COMMITTED TO EXCELLENCE
Electrotherm (India) Ltd has been committed to excellence to “Always Innovate for a Better Tomorrow” and the adoption of the “Iron ore – IF – LRF steel making route” is one of the key developments for production of high-quality Fe500D and Fe550D TMT bars in the last decade, of which ET TMT is a proud pioneer.
Electrotherm (India) Limited is the only Refined Steel Producer in Gujarat with an integrated iron ore – induction furnace – ladle refining furnace route. The company uses a combination of hot metal from mini blast furnace and sponge iron from SI Kilns for melting in Induction Furnaces. The steel is then refined in the ladle refining furnace (LRF) to reduce impurities in steel (Phosphorus and Sulphur). While the use of iron ore ensures that the steel produced is free of tramp elements, the use of LRF ensures that the levels of phosphorus and sulphur in the steel are reduced to meet with the stringent BIS norms of 500D or 550D, leading to high-quality TMT bars.
Electrotherm (India) Limited has an unshakeable commitment to producing Quality Steel at the most competitive price. Naturally, with these motives guiding its production as well as business practice it has emerged as a pioneer in achieving excellence in production, product development, and trendsetting innovation.
Considering that the Ispat Agrodoot Award comes close on the heels of its other recent achievement – the Frost and Sullivan Silver Award, also conferred to Electrotherm India in 2019, the company has been making headlines for various aspects of its business and manufacturing process.
WHAT IS THE SECRET OF ET TMT’S ALL-ROUND SUCCESS?
Electrotherm (India) Limited has registered uninterrupted success to emerge as the largest manufacturer of LRF refined TMT bars in Gujarat. It has remained true to its core philosophy – “Always innovate for a better tomorrow” and that has led it to make significant improvements in the areas of Product Quality, Customer Satisfaction, Industrial Health & Safety and Employee involvement for which it is gaining successive recognition on various national-level platforms. No wonder then that Electrotherm India has become a well known and highly reputed brand among Indian Steel producers as well as consumers.
