Inauguration of Nitrogen Pressure Reducing Stations  - Yet another initiative by RINL to increase productivity of Blast furnaces and reduce cost of production

Higher rate of injection of Pulverised Coal in Blast Furnaces facilitates replacement of high cost Coke with lower cost Coal and thereby reduces the cost of production and also will help increase productivity of Blast Furnaces. 

In this direction RINL team has taken initiatives and put efforts to increase its PCI (Pulverised Coal Injection) rate from existing 100 kg/per ton of Hot Metal to around 180 kg/ton of Hot Metal in Blast Furnaces 1, 2 and 3 at Visakhapatnam steel plant.
