Steelmaking and environmental hazards

Steelmaking and Environment Hazard Fe415 rightsteel

Steelmaking is one of the most important processes in the industrial sector all over the world. Steelmaking results in the production of steel from iron ores, which is used for a variety of purposes ranging from construction of roads, railways, infrastructures, automobiles and buildings. Even the most innovated TMT reinforced steel bars like the Fe 415, Fe 500 etc are developed from the steelmaking process. The demands for steel are always increasing to the point that we cannot imagine a world without steel.

The Corex Process Part-II

The Corex Process of Smelting of iron ore Fe415 Rightsteel

The previous blog described the alternative environment-friendly route to the conventional blast furnace known as the Corex process. It is a type of smelting reduction process which produces it by using non-coking coal instead of metallurgical coke, which is used by the Blast Furnace. The corex process consists of two parts namely Reduction stage and Melter-gasifier.

The Corex Process of Smelting of iron Fe415 Rightsteel

A building structure is incomplete without the right set of resources. There are many different resources involved in the construction of a building but the most important resource is the reinforced steel bar. The types of reinforced steel bar grades are Fe 415, Fe 500, Fe 550, Fe 600. The manufacture of steel begins with the steel making process, in which pig iron is purified and alloyed to make ingots.

Thermal Resistance of TMT bars

Thermal Resistance of TMT bars Fe415 rightsteel

Use of Thermo Mechanically Treated (TMT) reinforced bars for construction is now a standard practice. With newer technologies developing, it results in efficient constructions strategies which in turn improves the lifespan and structural integrity of the building structure. However strong the building structure claims to be, in order to for its longevity the building structure has to face several hurdles, even the natural disasters.

Corrosion Prevention on Reinforcement Bars Part – I

Corrosion Prevention on Reinforcement Bars fe415 rightsteel

Corrosion is not something to be taken lightly. It poses a dangerous threat to the overall strength of the building structure. Corrosion starts out pretty much simple and advances through several stages that result in the eventual collapsing of the structure. Even though corrosion is threatening for RCC, there are preventive measures that can be taken to considerably delay the corrosion effects.

Corrosion in RCC Part – 2

Corrosion of rebars in RCC rightsteel fe415

The last blog described the universal problem affecting the RCC which is corrosion / rusting and what are the causes of corrosion. In order for a Reinforced structure to have corrosion, the presence of these two components is needed which is moisture and air. Usually, corrosion starts out slowly and results in severe damages which in turn affects the structural integrity of the building.

Corrosion in RCC rightsteel fe415

Thermo Mechanically treated steel bars created the current standard of reinforcement. Their excellent tensile strength and ductility make them ideal and preferred for construction of building structures. Building structures are always susceptible to environmental changes. No building will ever be the same once the environmental changes kick in. Out of all the changes, the most serious and devastating is corrosion.

Bendability of Reinforcement bars

Bendability of TMT reinforcement bars fe415 rightsteel

Construction of a house requires perfect planning and the sufficient strength to withstand loads of the structure and the certain natural disasters. In order to deliver such strength, the TMT steel reinforced bars are primarily used. Thermo Mechanically Treated (TMT) steel reinforced bars are known for their absolute strength and ductility. TMT is actually an innovated procedure performed on the hot rolled steel bars, which results in a strong outer martensite layer that deals the tensile strength and a soft ferrite-pearlite inner core which deals with the ductility factor. TMT reinforced steel bars are known for its Bendability.
