Thermax supplies CCCT to Tata Steel
The Process Cooling division of Thermax bagged a major order by supplying three Closed Circuit Cooling Towers (CCCT) to Tata Steel’s Kalinganagar plant in Odisha. The towers installed for the ladle furnace and steel melting shops will help Tata steel achieve 10% of power saving.
Closed circuit cooling towers offer unmatched flexibility, provide evaporative cooling and optimised solutions for various process requirements and climatic conditions, utilising multiflow configuration.
Implementation of CCCT will eliminate the requirement of various other pumps and cooling towers, and lower the power consumption considerably, while maintaining the water intake.
Thermax’s scope of work includes designing, manufacturing, supplying and supervising the plant and equipment for CCCT, for the ladle furnace and steel melting shop (SMS).
The customer conducted a feasibility study based on the technical analysis provided by Thermax, for the soft water circuits in steel melting shop and found it to be more energy efficient than the conventional system in terms of its operating cost.
