Refractory Engineering Services Department of Rourkela Steel Plant (RSP), a unit of state-run Steel Authority of India Ltd (SAIL), has set new records in every area of operation during last one year. Refractory Engineering Services Department (RESD) has made significant contributions not only in increasing the lining life of Steel Converters and Ladles as well as Hot Metal ladles but also has created new records in the field of Specific Refractory consumption. RESD along with Steel Melting Shop II (SMS II) had shown an exemplary show in the field of techno economics with Converter 'B' of the Shop making a record lining life of 6842 heats in February 2013, according to an official statement of RSP. It said that “With this RSP broke its previous record of 6543 heats achieved in September 2011 in Converter 'A'. Due care was taken that all equipment are kept in proper shape to sustain such a long campaign life.” The Steel Ladle No. 8 of SMS II achieved a record life of 150 heats which is the best among SAIL Plants. This was due to a combined effort of Lime Dolomite and Brick Plant (LDBP), Refractory Engineering Services Department (RESD) and SMS II.

RDCIS, the Research and Development wing of SAIL was also associated with the in house brick manufacturing unit LDBP to develop tailor made bricks for these ladles. Refractory Engineering Services carried out relining and repair activities with utmost care. The Department also contributed to achievement of a record Steel ladle life of 100 heats at Steel Melting Shop I (SMS I) which is again the best performance in SAIL for small ladles. It may be recalled here that after the innovative introduction of full Magnesia Carbon lining, the ladle life improved up to 50 heats in 2008 to 09.
