A new case study, in « Case Studies, in Engeeniring Failure Analysis », Volume 2, Issue 2, October 2014, Pages 76–83.
Diversion due to coil break in cold rolled non oriented (CRNO) grades of coils showed an increasing trend during Jan–May’12 at Silicon Steel Mill (SSM), Rourkela Steel Plant (RSP). Coil break increased from a level of less than 1% during to a level of 30% in May’12. Further studies were carried out in the processing lines and material flow was tracked from steel making to final product. The probable reasons were identified and corrective measures were taken leading to reduction in diversion due to coil break less than 2%.
