Shipbreaking activities include dismantling old and damaged ships to recover metal items such as steel or other recyclable items. Steel Scrap recovered from the ship-breaking process is a predominant source of raw materials utilized in re-rolling mills. Usually, 70% of the overall light displacement tonnage of a dismantled ship comprises re-rollable scrap having extensive usage in the industry. The steel scrap is further recycled into rods and bars, which also have construction applications. There is a thriving market for steel scrap recovered from shipbreaking in India. With a reasonable price range, steel scrap attracts a horde of buyers from all over the country.
The demand for recovered steel scrap is dependent on its quality and condition. As the steel used to assemble ships can withstand pressure, high impact, and strain on account of severe cold, it is deemed fit for industrial applications. R.L. Kalthia Ship Breaking is a private organization indulged in recovering tonnes of steel scrap from dismantled ships. As India is a leading player in ship breaking business and has a huge demand for re-rolling steel. Our company also provides shipbreaking scrap material at the best price in India.
Shipbreaking scrap material mainly consists of re-rollable scrap which is further recycled into useful industrial products. As the material recovered from shipbreaking has superior yield strength, through-thickness ductility, and notch impact strength, it can be recycled into rods and bars of the same durability and strength. The chemical composition of recovered scrap is consistent and has low sulfur and phosphorus content. Steel from shipbreaking is more reliable than steel from billets and ingots.
From a metallurgic point of view, the steel from ship breaking is normalized, fully killed, and has a finer and more compact grain structure, free from inclusions, cracks, pores, and austenitic characteristics. For industrial applications that require corrosion resistance, impact resistance, machinability, formability, bendability, re-rollable scrap from shipbreaking is an ideal match. R.L. Kalitha is bringing you the best quality steel scarp right from the coasts of Alang.
One of the reasons why shipbreaking became a huge success in developing countries such as India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh is the availability of labor. Shipbreaking is a labor-intensive process that utilizes a huge workforce to dismantle a ship and scrape off re-rollable steel. The physical material recovered before dismantling the ship is given below:
Once all these items are successful, the workers proceed to dismantle the ship. The steel structure of the vessel is cut vertically by Oxygen-LPG into large blocks. These large blocks are dropped on the shores or beachside. From there on they are dragged and cut into smaller pieces for selling purposes. This steel scrap and re-rollable steel now become available to be recycled by the steel and manufacturing industry.
