Steel Wool

Steel wool, also known as iron wool, wire wool, steel wire or wire sponge, is a bundle of very fine and flexible sharp-edged steel filaments. It was described as a new product. It is used as an abrasive in finishing and repair work for polishing wood or metal objects, cleaning household cookware, cleaning windows, and sanding surfaces.

Steel wool is most often used in refinishing furniture and sometimes in the kitchen (in the form of the popular Brillo pad,) but those are by no means its only uses! Steel wool is an inexpensive and effective workhorse inside and outside of home.

Steel wool is the name given to fine metal wire that are bundled together to form a cluster of abrasive, sharp-edged metal strips. The metal strips are massed together in a sheet, folded, and turned into pads that are easily held in the hand. These steel wool pads are used for a variety of purposes, but primarily as an abrasive material, sometimes replacing sandpaper. Steel wool may be best known to consumers as the pink-colored abrasive pads that have soap added so that they may be used to scrub pots and pans.

Cement Grinding Unit

Cement grinding are used to improve the efficiency of cement production and reduce energy consumption. Cement grinding have been used for improving cement clinker grinding efficiency, power flow ability, and strength development of binders.

India has a lot of potential for development in the infrastructure and construction sector and the cement sector is expected to largely benefit from it. Some of the recent major initiatives such as development of 98 smart cities are expected to provide a major boost to the sector.

Cement production capacity stood at 502 million tonnes per year (mtpy) in 2018. Cement consumption is expected to grow by 4.5 per cent in FY19 supported by pick-up in the housing segment and higher infrastructure spending. The industry is currently producing 280 MT for meetings its domestic demand and 5 MT for exports requirement.

The Indian cement industry is dominated by a few companies. The top 20 cement companies account for almost 70 per cent of the total cement production of the country. A total of 210 large cement plants account for a cumulative installed capacity of over 350 million tonnes, with 350 small plants accounting for the rest. Of these 210 large cement plants, 77 are located in the states of Andhra Pradesh, Rajasthan and Tamil Nadu.

Auto Bulb, Lamp

Light bulbs for automobiles are made in several standardized series. Bulbs used for headlamps, turn signals and brake lamps may be required to comply with international and national regulations governing the types of lamps used. Other automotive lighting applications such as auxiliary lamps or interior lighting may not be regulated, but common types are used by many automotive manufacturers.

India automotive lighting market is projected to grow at a CAGR of over 12% by 2023, on the back of improvement in vehicle safety standards, advanced features in vehicle lighting systems, and government regulations towards vehicle lighting systems. Moreover, increasing automobile production, as well as vehicle fleet is further contributing to the growth of India automotive lighting market.

An incandescent light bulb, incandescent lamp or incandescent light globe is an electric light with a wire filament heated to such a high temperature that it glows with visible light (incandescence). The filament is protected from oxidation with a glass or fused quartz bulb that is filled with inert gas or a vacuum. In a halogen lamp, filament evaporation is slowed by a chemical process that redeposits metal vapor onto the filament, thereby extending its life.

The global lamps market is expected to expand at a modest CAGR from 2015 to 2023. It is estimated that lighting consumes a significant portion of energy production. The growing demand from rural areas on account of initiatives taken by governments across regions is expected to boost the global lamps market. Rural areas in developing nations of India, the Middle East and Latin America are witnessing a surge in the demand for lamps. The demand for lamps exists not only from residential sectors, but also from commercial and industrial sectors, which will ensure a steady growth of the market.

Petroleum jelly prevents ingress of moisture and water inside the core in the event of any damages to the cable. The Cable is circular throughout its length and is free from any physical defects.

Furnace Oil

Furnace oil is a dark colored fuel, either distilled or residual fraction of crude oil that is extracted while petroleum distillation and is used for the purpose of generation heat and power. This fuel is sticky, thick and glutinous in nature. Furnace oil is known by the name of fuel oil internationally and also as bunker fuel. The fuel oil consists of lengthy chains of hydrogen and carbon mainly alkanes, cycloalkanes and aromatics. Basically furnace oil is termed for relatively heavier commercial extracts from crude oil.

Fuel oil (also known as heavy oil, marine fuel or furnace oil) is a fraction obtained from petroleum distillation, either as a distillate or a residue. In general terms, fuel oil is any liquid fuel that is burned in a furnace or boiler for the generation of heat or used in an engine for the generation of power, except oils having a flash point of approximately 42°C (108°F) and oils burned in cotton or wool-wick burners.

Furnace oil is largely an industrial fuel. It acts as a key ingredient in the generation of electricity and heat in a number of production units. It has been used since a long time for such purposes and has gained much importance and inevitable value. Fuel oil comes under the category of the heavier oils that include furnace oil, low sulfur heavy stock, residual fuel oil, lube oil, bitumen, petroleum coke, paraffin wax and other waxes which can be extracted from crude oil.

Paint Brush
