BDG Metal produces a wide range of continuously casted Billets in its Integrated Steel Plant. The state-of- art technology ensures international quality standards and ensures smooth and defect-free casting of billets. M.S. Billets are used for rolling of TMT Re-Bars of Fe 415/415D, Fe 500/500D, Fe 550/550D & Fe 600 Grade. The following are the specification of Billets available with BDG Metal & Power.

Billets of different designations are manufactured in three different grades namely A, B, C having sulphur, phosphorous content (on ladle analysis) and carbon equivalent as follows

Chemical Analysis

Grade Sulphur Phosphorous Carbon Equivalent (CE)1
Max Max Max
A 0.050 0.050 0.42
B 0.045 0.045 0.41
C 0.040 0.040 0.39
  1. Carbon equivalent based on ladle analysis = C + Mn/6 + (Cr+Mo+V)/5 + (Ni+Cu)/15
  2. When steel is required in copper bearing quality, copper content is between 0.20 60 0.35 percent

The following are the Special features of the Billets:

Excellent Surface Finish: The Billets produced are free from any surface. Magnetic particle test in order to identify any crack on the surface is done on a regular basis.

Dimensional Tolerance: Billets produced strictly in accordance to IS 2830 for dimensional tolerance.

No Internal Defects: The Billets produced are free from any internal defects. Defects such as piping blowholes and pinholes are identified and segregated by Sulphur Print Test.
