About our Noble Ferro Alloys Division
Established in 1980, the Noble Ferro Alloys Division of Essel Mining & Industries Limited (EMIL) is located at Vapi in Gujarat. With a manufacturing capacity of 6,000 Million Tonnes Per Annum (MTPA) of different types of Ferro Alloys, the company is the largest producer of high quality Noble Ferro Alloys in the country.
The Noble Ferro Alloys Division produces Ferro Molybdenum, Ferro Vanadium, Ferro Titanium in lumps form and powder form and unfused Vanadium Pentoxide (V2O5) powder. Noble Ferro Alloys are used in the manufacture of alloy steels, high-speed steels and other special grade steels and imparts strength and anti-corrosive properties to steel. Ferro Molybdenum and Ferro Vanadium Powders are used in the manufacture of welding electrodes. Unfused Vanadium Pentoxide (V2O5) powder is used as catalyst in the fertiliser industry and chemical processing Industry.
Noble Ferro Alloys Division has a sharp focus on research and development (R&D) to develop new / customised products for its existing and new customers to suit specific application requirements of its customers, technical support team to help customers in efficient usage of products, a strong distribution network and a dedicated regional marketing team for efficient delivery of products and services to its customers.
The unit is first in the field of Noble Ferro Alloys to be awarded with the coveted Rajiv Gandhi National Quality Award Commendation in 1998, 1999 and 2003 under large scale category.
The manufacturing process for production of Ferro Molybdenum, Ferro Vanadium and Ferro Titanium uses aluminium and silicon as reducing agents to convert oxide ores of respective elements to its Ferro Alloy form and is called 'lumino Thermic Process'.
The major advantage of this process is that it does not require external energy input for carrying out the reaction and heat is generated by process itself using exothermic reaction.
