Heat Treatment Application

The esteemed customer: 

Our customer has been a significant contributor to the development of the casting industry, and their facility at Coimbatore is strategically planned to manufacture high-quality steel castings. The main offices are connected to the foundry offices to manage production processes.

They have set up a unique methodology of Pep set (three-part) no-bake foundry processes aligned to the requirements of alloy and steel industries. With the latest technologies and machinery, they have minimized human intervention in these processes and optimized their performances. Augmenting the infrastructure has been their primary objective for catering to the growing demands of this industry. The customer used Diesel for their application, which has been converted to LPG.

The challenges faced by the customer pre-conversion to LPG:

  • Scope of work finalization for Primary manifold system & Secondary piping system  
  • Critical Pipeline routing of LPG secondary piping (approx.- 300 Mts)
  • The customer’s legal team has raised queries on various clauses of the agreement & bank guarantee 

SUPERGAS’s approach: 

Our initial discussion started in 2018 by collecting the basic input data of fuel consumption, preparing a complete cost-benefit analysis report for the customer, and submitting the ROI.

They almost finalized with the local vendor for free installation and supply for LPG, based on which the LPG shed was constructed as per the drawing, which lacked technical expertise. 

Finally, after several negotiations, they chose SUPERGAS, considering our technical expertise and the strength of the support function team. The agreement was signed in September’21 and was commissioned in Feb’22, along with the secondary piping project. 

The process of heat treatment in their industry uses basic techniques, viz., case hardening, annealing, tempering, and normalizing. Our customer possesses an in-house infrastructure to conduct these processes accurately under controlled conditions.

Solution offered:

Our team explained the tangible and intangible benefits of LPG over HSD with an offer for 2 X 30 SLOT installation to fulfil their energy needs for production.  
The customer was quite impressed by the approach of SUPERGAS due to our technical expertise, dedicated sales team, as well as customer service support and our products & services. Our offer covered all their challenges and priorities, like fewer nos. of cylinders to handle, direct supply and no dealer/franchise involvement.

Benefits of partnering with SUPERGAS: 

  • LPG supply assurance, smooth and uninterrupted LPG supply 
  • Auto ordering and hence not dependent on manual intervention 
  • Huge cost savings by conversion as well as maintenance over HSD 
  • No downtime for cleaning/maintenance of the oven 
  • No spillage of fuel 
  • Smoke-free environment inside the plant, which avoids eye irritation for their employees
