Rourkela Steel Plant has developed a full-body sanitizer to combat the pandemic COVID-19.

Rourkela:13/4/20: The enterprising collective of SAIL, Rourkela Steel Plant (RSP) has developed a full-body sanitizer to combat the pandemic COVID-19.

In view of the tough challenges being faced by the Steel Plant in preventing the highly infectious disease, a new full-body Sanitizer Dispensing System has been developed at the Shops-Mechanical Shop. The Newly developed Unit consists of a Pump Unit, a Spraying Unit, and a Sanitizer Chamber.

All the components of the system have been arranged in-house with the help of different departments of the plant. An old and discarded pump unit with the motor has been supplied by the Blast Furnaces Mechanical department for the system while the 4 nozzles fixed in the system have been provided by the Coke Ovens Mechanical department. The components were reconditioned at Shops-Mechanical. The Shops-Mechanical Shop collective fabricated the trolleys with wheels for both the Pump Unit and the Spraying Unit for portability.

Besides, the sprayer has been mounted on the stand of the trolley make it possible to swivel. The Sanitizer Chamber has been developed in-house by the Structural & Fabrication Shop department. The Sanitizer Chamber will be used to concentrate the mists being sprayed by the sprayer for effective human sanitization.

The New System has been developed by the collective led by Mr. Shekhar Narayan, GM (Mechanical Shop) under the guidance of Mr. Raj Sekhar, CGM (Mechanical) and Mr. Ram Narayan Nayak, CGM In-charge (Maintenance). The M&HS department has also helped in the development of the system. The System will be used at the Traffic gate of the Plant which witnesses a large footfall of employees and other stakeholders
