Manufacturing Process
Steel scraps are melted in an electric arc furnace and poured into a ladle. The ladle is lifted and slowly titled. As the molten steel flows out of the ladle and falls towards a cooling tank, it is struck mid air by a jet of water which breaks it up into drops of a spherical shape chemical . The particles solidify while flying through the air and upon entering the water. This phase is called atomization or granulation. The chemicals composition is monitored frequently because significant changes take place during this crucial phase of production. Elements such as ferroalloys are added quickly in order to produce shot with good mechanical properties and to ensure compliance with specification.

5 elements: carbon, manganese, silicon, phosphorous and sulphur are the major parameters that play a Major Role during manufacturing process. Material Coming out is a semi- finished shot, which undergo further treatment and selection. Treatment is thermal (more commonly called heat treatment) and mechanical, while selection is by size, mass and shape.

Please have a closer look at our manufacturing process:
Heat Treatments
Quenching eliminates the larger crystalline microstructure which forms in the grains as a result of the very quick change of state from liquid to solid during atomization. This process gives a fine martenstic microstructure with fine, well distributed carbides.Tempering determines the correct hardness range and also gives a microstructure of tempered martensite as per desired specifications.
Mechanical Treatments
Conditioning eliminates grains with internal and superficial defects (hollows or crackers) by causing them to break up and thus allow their removal by sieving. Conditioning gives each grain a characteristics multi facetted appearance and stabilizes hardness.
Treatments by selection
Size selection by sieving, depending on the type of shot needed and on the related specification.
Mass selection eliminates hollow grains with highly – irregular shapes. It also removes free particles of slag or oxides. This process ensures that shot has the appropriate kinetic energy.
Control Plan
We monitor our production by establishing a control plan, which is a program consisting of a series of process and products checks going from selection of raw materials all the way down to warehousing of finished product.
Our Experienced and technical Team is well aware that at what point of the production cycle each type of control must be carried out. Our control plan includes up to twelve or more separate checks and each must yield positive results before finial quality approval is given. For proper Product controls we have a sampling plan which determines not only at what point of the production cycle samples should be taken, but also states how they are to be taken, with what frequency and verified according to what test methods.
