    Ductile iron PiPes & Fittings

  • The largest ductile iron manufacturer on

    the Indian sub-continent, Electrosteel

    Castings Ltd. (ECL) first manufactured

    ductile iron in 1994. ECL recognised

    the performance benefits provided by

    ductile irons inherent strength, impact

    resistance and handleability.

    Electrosteel is based in Khardah, near

    Kolkata, on the east coast of India and

    has created modern state-of-the-art

    facilities for the manufacture of ductile

    iron pipes, fittings and flanged pipe

    from 80mm diameter up to 1000mm.

    Electrosteels manufacturing facilities

    meet all current international standards

    including IS:8329, ISO2531, BS EN545

    and BS EN598. Over 50% of the pipe

    and fittings supplied by the Khardah

    plant are destined for international

    markets including Europe, the Middle

    East, South East Asia and Africa.

    Electrosteel in EuropeRecognising the European markets need for a competitive supplier base, Electrosteel has established subsidiary companies in UK, France and Spain. Electrosteel supplies product into many other European markets through these subsidiaries.

    In order to service the UK market, Electrosteel UK provides a full service package that includes:

    Comprehensive stock holding of pipes,

    fittings and flanged pipe

    Fast track manufacture of flanged pipe

    specials

    Technical advice at the design stage

    Full after-sales support for the product

    As part of Electrosteels strategic European business unit, Electrosteel UK is able to call on the resources and support of its sister companies.

    Electrosteels modern facilities produce

    high quality products in an efficient,

    cost effective and environmentally-

    friendly manner. Operating to ISO9001

    and ISO14001 standards, Electrosteel

    has adopted a strategy of full process

    integration. In addition to continuous

    investment in the manufacturing

    process, emphasis has been placed

    on investing in key stages within the

    supply chain to provide greater control

    of costs and increased price stability for

    customers.

    Areas where investments have taken

    place include:

    Coal mines

    Coke ovens

    Iron ore mines

    Power generation

  • DUCTILE IRON PIPEAN OVERVIEW

    Why ductile iron?Ductile iron (spheroidal graphite or nodular cast iron)

    has replaced the use of cast iron in the manufacture of

    pipes and fittings. Ductile iron has more than double

    the tensile strength of cast iron (420Mpa compared to

    180Mpa). Simple to joint ductile iron can also be laid

    in all weather conditions without the need for selected

    backfill. Its strength, high safety factor and ability

    to accommodate ground movement make it the ideal

    pipeline material for a wide range of applications.

    Key features

    High strength

    High safety factor

    Single rated system

    Surge resistant

    Tolerates ground movement

    Proven ease of jointing and installation

    Resistant to corrosion and chemical contamination

    Extensive size range

    Suitable for above and below ground applications

    Applications

    Raw and potable water pumping and gravity

    applications

    Distribution mains

    Sewer pipelines, pumped and gravity applications

    Drainage

    Pump stations and treatment works

    River crossings

    Bridge crossings

    Piling for ground stabilisation

  • QUALITY CHECKS AT EVERYSTAGE OF MANUFACTURING

    Strict selection of raw materials is an indispensable requirement to produce

    quality ductile iron pipes & fittings. Electrosteel endeavours to achieve 'Quality

    - right the first time' with strict quality control on raw material selection and

    procurement.

    Electrosteel commissioned its Mini Blast Furnace (MBF) at its plant at Khardah

    using TKES technology. MBF produces liquid metal suited to the manufacture

    of ductile iron pipes. The liquid metal is further processed and superheated in

    induction furnaces. It is then treated with magnesium for nodularisation and

    transferred to the centrifugal spun casting machines.

    The pipes are heat treated, zinc coated, hydrostatically tested, cement mortar

    lined and finished with a layer of bitumen coating/epoxy.

    The in-process inspection and quality control at all points during the

    production cycle is strictly maintained and documented as per ISO 9001

    quality systems.
