The company is well known for its concern to control the generation and liberation of fugitive dust at various sources in the mines and cement plant for the protection of environment by adoption of scientific measures. The adoption of surface miner for limestone mining, bag filters at all potential dust emission points and reverse air bag filter for raw mill and kiln gases, ESP’s are example of consciousness and commitment of the company towards the implementation of best available technological means. We are producing high quality clinker to manufacture superior quality of 53 grade portland cement from the very first date of commissioning the plant. We are maintaining high C3S in clinker with values exceeding 55%.
A choice to use lignite as 100% fuel was made due to economic reasons and process capabilities of Sanghi Industries Ltd though the plant supplier recommended the usage of lignite partly along with coal. The company is the first in India to use 100% lignite as fuel. High surface moisture content in lignite as run of mines was countered by sun-drying of lignite up to a level of 20% total moisture. Inertisation system in the process of grinding and storage of lignite was used to avoid fire hazards. Also strictly maintain 9% oxygen level in lignite mill circuit. The generation of carbon monoxide is strictly controlled through effective control of pyro section as gases for lignite mill operation is being taken through preheater. Various auto purging points identified for the purging of inert gas the system whenever any abnormality observed. It is in practice to purge raw mix powder into the mill at the time of starting and stopping of lignite mill.
