Case Study: Hydraulic Piping for the Sinter Plant Granulator: Chattisgarh, INDIA

Project No: 3959

National Mineral Development Corporation is one of the state controlled mineral producers of the Government of India. NMDC awarded Rs. 760 crore (116 Million USD) turnkey project to build a Sinter Plant to a consortium. For their Nagarnagar Steel Plant in Jagadalapur, Chattisgarh. The responsibility of building their Sinter Plant to Primetals, Austria. NMDC being the 8th largest Iron Ore producer in the world wanted a state of the art plant built.
Primetals decided to go with Tube-Mac Non-Welded Piping Systems for the hydraulic hardline of the Hydraulic Granulator in the Sinter Plant. 

The hydraulic piping system was manufactured as a pre-fabricated piping system in TMI’s Austrian Facility and shipped to Jagadalapur, Chattisgarh for installation.

Features of the granulator hydraulic piping system are as follows:-
  1. Technology : Tube-Mac Non Welded Piping – 37 Degree Flare Flange and Retain Ring Flange System
  2. Pipe Sizes : 4” NPS, 80 mm Metric
  3. System Pressure : 315 bar
  4. Piping Length : Approx 350 mtr (4 lines – Pressure, Return, Drain, Flushing)

The scope of work was as follows:-

  1. Design and Supply of Pre-Fabricated Non-Welded Hydraulic Hardline.
  2. Installation of the Hydraulic Piping System.
