India’s biggest private sector steel company – JSW Steel Ltd., operates several manufacturing plants in India and is a world leader in the supply of steel for the automotive, construction and energy markets.
The successful completion of a similar contract at JSW Steel’s Vijayanagar works in Bellary, resulted in Kirloskar Corrocoat Private Ltd (KCPL) securing an order to clean and corrosion protect the internal steelwork of a blast furnace stove dome at the company’s Dolvis steel manufacturing plant.
The stove dome, which holds the gases used to heat a blast furnace is 10m diameter by 45m long – in all a total of 1800m2 was airless sprayed using Polyglass VEF and for smaller areas where spraying was impractical, VEHA was used – applied by brush. Polyglass VEF/VEHA offer excellent corrosion, chemical and temperature resistance.
“Satisfied customers placing repeat orders are testament to the quality of Corrocoat products and the professionalism of our service” says KCPL’s Chief Executive – Jackie Dias. “As an existing customer, JSW Steel is well aware of the advantages of using our services, and has chosen KCPL as a preferred provider of anti-corrosion services.”
