Burner number: Total 22 • 10 in heating zone, 12 in soaking zone

Air-Fuel ratio: 10:1Fuel used:

Duel fuel:• Natural Gas• Light Diesel Oil (LDO)

Pressure: 0.3 bar Temperature: 1200 degree Celsius

Page 11: Bangladesh steel re rolling mill (bsrm)


3 zones:• Pre-heating zone (billets are heated by pre-heated air up to 400˚ C)• Heating zone (billets are further heated up to 1200˚ C)• Soaking zone ( maintains the temperature gained in heating zone)

Peel bar :

Used to push the billet out of furnace Billet detector ;

2 billet detectors are used for positioning the billets inside the furnace Recuperator:

Used to pre heat air

Page 12: Bangladesh steel re rolling mill (bsrm)


Heated billet goes through a shape changing process by rolling Two types of rolling stand:

• Vertical: 8• Horizontal: 12

Three area:• Roughing area: 8 stands• Intermittent area: 6 stands• Finishing area: 6 stands

Looper: max. 6 (use to reduce tension of heated rod) Slitter: use to split the billet for less dia. rod

13MILL AREAQTB (Quenching and Tempering Bath)

Use for uniform cooling of heated rod Martensite formation Direct contact of water, rapid cooling Temperature is reduced by 200 C ̊ ̊

Shear Machine: Detach the billet in head & tail position Three shear machine

• Shear 1 (between stand 6&7, cuts the head portion)• Shear 2 (between stand 12&13, cuts the tail portion)• Shear 3 (placed after QTB, cuts the billets according the cooling bed size)

Page 14: Bangladesh steel re rolling mill (bsrm)

14FINISHING AREA The quenched rod after shear-3 moves through here The main components operating in Finishing Area are:

• Inclined Apron Roller Table • Cooling Bed• Cold Shear• Tying Machine

Inclined Apron Roller Table • 72 motor-driven rollers: imparts motion to the discontinuous rods• 71 Lifting Aprons: shifts the rods lengthwise to the cooling bed• 5 interconnected hydraulic cylinders: controlling simultaneous opening and closing of the

aprons• 3 Magnetic Stoppers: stops the rods moving at high velocity

Page 15: Bangladesh steel re rolling mill (bsrm)


Two types of racks; Fixed and Movable: shifts the rods along transverse direction

These Movable jaws are driven by a single motor.

Two gear boxes having worm gear transmits power from motor.

Eccentric cylindrical cams are connected in series in the driven shafts.

Cams have counterweight adjusted at 180 degree.

Hydraulically driven arms transfer the rods from the cooling bed to a rolling trolley

The rolling trolley transfers them in their longitudinal direction to Cold Shear Cold Shear

AC Motor Driven System

Motor Flywheel Clutch-Brake System

Axially displaced parallel shafts by cams to move the upper jaw to cut the rods.

25QUALITY ASSURANCE (QA) Main Purpose is to ensure the product quality. BSRM always try to improve product quality with best techniques of the world. They ensure ISO 9001:2000 One set of rebar is checked in every hour. For 500W

• Yield strength is 500MPa. • Ratio of tensile and ultimate strength is not more than 1.15

Testing Instruments:• Bar bending mandrel• CNC roll turning lathe• Universal testing machine• Computer attached with UTM• Spectrometer • Microscope

Page 26: Bangladesh steel re rolling mill (bsrm)


Three layers • Martensitic case• Transition zone• Ferrite-Pearlite core

Martensitic case provides hardness of steel. Ferrite-Pearlite core provides ductility of steel. Controlling the amount of water flow of QTB, we can control the marten site

layer thickness. Martensitic layer should not be more than 40% of total rebar x-section area.

27WORKSHOP The workshop of BSRM is very much enriched. The performance of the workshop

machines makes the industry self- dependent. Excelled engineers and technicians maintain the workshop.

The work shop instruments:• Shear Machine• CNC-Roller notching Machine• CNC-Lathe Machine• Manual Lathe Machine• Bench Drill Machine• Radial Drilling Machine• Surface Grinding Machine• Robot

Page 28: Bangladesh steel re rolling mill (bsrm)


Dressing of gear teeth Surface grinding operation Repairing mechanical equipment Interchanging between horizontal and vertical stands

BSRM does all kind of repairing and maintaining works in their workshop. This saves a large amount of money of the industry and enhances the profit.
