37) Particulars of Energy Conservation Technology Absorption Research andDevelopment Foreign Exchange Earnings and Outgo.
A] Energy Conservation 2019 20
The company has implemented an energy management system as per ISO 50001. During thisperiod the energy management system ISO 50001:2011 certification is upgraded to ISO50001:2018 at Jalgaon location. Some of the energy related improvements done in themanufacturing facilities are given below:
AC Drive installed on five extruder machines Water Bath for 2.2 kw vacuum pump whichreduced energy consumption by about 32300 KWh per year in casing pipe plant.
AC Drive installed for Air compressor 1250L & E-37 which reduced energy consumptionby about 31800 KWh per year in casing pipe plant.
PPI make close coupled vacuum pumps Installed on five extruders which reduces energyconsumption by about 29600 KWh per year in casing pipe plant.
Provision of additional unloading feeder for same grade raw material unloading at siloresulted in reduction of dry run and hence energy saving of about 5% in the driplineplant.
Modificationin turbo slim extrusion line no.81 for getting higher line speed therebysaving energy of about 10%.
The Tube lights were replaced by LED lights saving around 32472 Kwh per year in Driptape Plant.
In injection moulding plant Hot Runner/multi cavity
Moulds developed for sleeve for hammer 5022 & 5035 Mini sprinkler Nozzle bearingthereby resulting in increase of productivity reduction in energy consumption withelimination of recycling material.
Developed automation for operating multiple cooling towers as per requirement ontemperature base. This has helped in reducing water & energy consumption compared tothe previous period.
Chiller water circulation pump is controlled by VFD & during idle period ofchiller pump is operated with reduced frequency. This results in considerable energysaving for all 3 chillers.
Servo drive successfully installed on 5 IM machines.
Energy consumption monitored for 5 retrofitted IM machines for 1 year. Before retrofitment energy consumption was 1.26 unit/kg. After retro fitment it is 0.486unit/kg.
In PVC sheet Plant on Line No 7 existing DC Motor & DC Drive Replaced by AC Motorand AC drive to reduce Process wastage and also achieved energy 10892 kwh energy saving inannum.
1. Solar Photovoltaic Module plant Solar Motors with Pump & Solar PhotovoltaicAppliances operations are integrated in single building to utilize common utility.
2. Solar Photovoltaic Module plant Air Conditioning area is reduced to reduce theenergy consumption and lighting load.
3. In the new integrated layout Air Conditioners load used in motor plants are reducedto 5T from 22T to reduce energy consumption.
4. Solar Motor & Pump testing time of pump set reduced to one hour from six hoursconsidering the reduction of in process failure of Pump sets. This also reduces thecooling tower load from 13.5HP to 6 HP.
5. Solar fabrication activity utilization of high Consuming operation mainly SandBlasting Press Brake Shearing and welding machine is schedule as per time zones whereelectric power is at low rate available.
B] Technology Absorption/up gradation

C] Research and Development
HDPE pipes are used for wide variety of From water transportation to waste waterchemicals hazardous wastes leachate compressed gases oils slurries etc. Its lightweight characteristics flexibility even at low temperature resistivity towardschemicals non-corrosion makes it an ideal candidate for extremely tough and highlydemanding application. HDPE is replacing metal GI Ductile Iron and concrete pipes fortransportation of effluents sewage corrosive chemicals and sludge etc. The demand forHDPE pipe in higher diameter is very high especially for desalination industry /application. With the higher demand as well as in the process of identifying newapplication for ease of operation higher product life higher cost to performance ratioattempt has been made to develop and offer HDPE pipe in diameter 2000 mm & 2500 mm.Extrusion of HDPE with such an high diameter meant for high pressure application isextremely tricky and difficult task. When HDPE pipe having diameter 2000 mm and 2500 mm isextruded maintaining uniform wall thickness around the circumference is very important.The thickness of such large diameter is about 100 mm and 118 mm and due to this higherthickness there will be a phenomenon known as sagging during the extrusion process.Because of gravity molten polymeric mass will tend to flow towards the bottom of theextrusion die and hence thickness of such a high wall thickness higher diameter pipe isalways higher compared to top side of the pipe extruded. Mere adjustment of die gap andprocess temperature of the die will not address the problem of sagging. Material selectionwith proper viscosity number molecular weight distribution and molecular weight of theHDPE used design of the tool sets die mandrel & calibrator design of vacuumtanks / cooling tanks for maintaining the shape and cooling of molten mass and otherdownstream equipment's play a Powervital role. HDPE being poor in conducting heatcooling the pipe of thickness 100 & 118 mm was a big challenge and this was addressedthrough an innovative cooling mechanism adopted during the extrusion process. AfterExtensive trials processing conditions and grade of HDPE were established for extrusionof HDPE pipe in diameter 2000 and 2500 mm. With the in house development ofextrusion downstream machineries & processing methodology we are the only Indianmanufacture who could produce such a higher diameter pipes with wall thickness variationas minimum as possible which is a quite unique achievement as far as the process qualityand capability is concerned.
