RSP develops body sanitizer dispensing system to combat Coronavirus

The enterprising collective of SAIL's Rourkela Steel Plant (RSP) has developed a full-body sanitizer to combat the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic

Rourkela: The enterprising collective of Steel Authority of India Limited's (SAIL) Rourkela Steel Plant (RSP) has developed a full-body sanitizer to combat the pandemic Coronavirus (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 four 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 structural and 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 RSP's General Manager (Mechanical Shop) Shekhar Narayan under the guidance of Chief General Manager (Mechanical) Raj Sekhar and CGM In-charge (Maintenance) Ram Narayan Nayak. 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.
