It is worth mentioning that one of the streams i.e. Stream B of the Oxygen PRS had got damaged in June 2015. As a result only one PRS was available for Simultaneous blowing. To improve the reliability and ensure uninterrupted blowing at SMS-II the 2nd Stream was revived at a cost of Rs 1.6 crores. The erection, installation and commissioning was completed by M/s LIL in close association with Oxygen Plant. The logic and interlock was implemented by Instrumentation department. The job was carried out in phases so that SMS-II production is not affected. The programme was co-ordinated by Mrs. Asha S. Kartha, DGM, Oxygen Plant.
