JSPL | Towards a Safer Future

With a vision of building a new India, JSPL is dedicated to transform the dream of safe & high speed trains into reality.

JSPL has installed an integrated flash butt welding plant to produce long welded Rails upto 484 meter using Rolled rails which are 121 m long thereby considerably reducing the number of welds contributing to overall safety of the track by the reducing number of joints. The commuter enjoys a safe and bump-less ride & the railways saves on track life & maintenance.

Covering 65,000Km, carrying 25 million passengers and over 2.8 million tonnes of freight daily, Indian Railways is the most important means of transport in the country today.

It is the 3rd largest railway network in the world and has a demand of approx. 10,000-15,000 km of tracks every year.

JSPL endeavors to strengthen India´s industrial base by aiding infrastructural development, through sustainable development approaches and inclusive growth. The company deploys its resources to revolutionize and improve infrastructure with a state-of-the art 121m long rail making facility.

JSPL´s Rail and Universal Beam Mill:
JSPL has set up a state-of -the-art Rail & Universal Beam Mill to produce superior quality, world´s longest 121m long, finished rails for the first time in India.

JSPL is producing class-A rails in length upto 121m as per IRS-T-12-2009 being inspected by RITES before dispatch.

JSPL has perfected the process of steel making over the past decade. Adopting state-of the-art technology, JSPL is fully geared to provide international quality standards of rail steel.

JSPL has an integrated flash butt welding plant to produce long welded rails in panels upto 484 m length.

Rails produced by JSPL come with unmatched internal material soundness and dimensional compliance conforming to Indian & international standards. These ´A´ class long rails are all set to make the introduction of high speed trains in India a reality. The availability of 121 meter long rails ensures a drastic reduction of weld population per km in Indian rail tracks, resulting in better riding comfort, enhanced safety and substantial savings in costs.

Main Features

  • Minimises costs, construction time, handling and improves safety due to Reduced number of welds and hence lower welding costs.
  • Reduced number of potential defects/ failure points & lesser chances of failure
  • Faster laying and Project completion time
  • Enhanced travel comfort due to lesser rail joints
  • Rails in length of 121 meters and further delivered in welded panels´ upto 484 m length has become an established norm in the developed regions viz. Europe, Japan, South Korea etc
  • Handling operations at plant and site executed with special systems and equipment to guarantee maximum product integrity.
  • Specialised system for flash butt welding into LWRP of upto 484 m in length.
  • Synchronised monorail hoist system for and handling and loading of LWRP.
  • No drilling in the rails is necessary for loading & unloading process.
  • High security against tilting of trains.
  • Deforming strain under admissible limits during handling & transportation
  • Increased Rail Life (Minimum Defects) & Maximum Safety
  • Special Features of Rail Steel Making process of JSPL:
  • Process Route DRI/BF-EAF-LRF-RH-CCM to produce RAIL bloom.
  • Desulphurization in Ladle refining furnace
  • RH degasser with Argon purging ensures Hydrogen less than 1.6ppm (as per IRS-T-12-2009)
  • Electromagnetic stirrer in caster ensures reduced segregation & equiaxed structure of bloom.
  • As JSPL contributes to India´s growth, it has also set in place a global expansion plan in order to become one of the most prestigious and dynamic business groups of the country.

    State-of-the-art process of Long Rails
    JSPL has installed an integrated flash butt welding plant to produce long welded Rails upto 484 meter using Rolled rails which are 121 m long thereby considerably reducing the number of welds contributing to overall safety of the track by reducing number of joints.

    The welding plant by Railtech SCHLATTER-France comprises state-of-the art automatic brushing, automatic welding machine (with built-in stripping unit), post straightening and finish grinding followed by on-line ultrasonic testing of welded joints. Welding parameters of Rails complies with requirement of RDSO Flash Butt Welding Manual. JSPL has also invested in setting up a synchronised Crane Hoists system for handling and loading of long Rails into specially designed rakes meant for carrying 260meter panels. Rail handling through synchronised Crane Hoists are capable of handling long rails upto 484 meters.
