Swarup, D and Bashforth, G Reginald (1960) The Relation of Pilot Plants to Full Scale Operation. In: Symposium on Pilot Plants in Metallurgical Research and Development, 15-18/02/1960, Jamshedpur.
The author's chief interest in pilot plants is as a means of practical instruction. At the Banaras Hindu University a number of pilot plants have been installed so as to impart some practical Idea of metallurgical processes to final year students. These pilot plants include a sintering plant, several small size cupolas, an LD converter, a basic lined side blown converter, indirect arc furnace & high frequency electric furnaces. The latest addition to this range of pilot plants is a small scalp Edwards vacuum melting unit. In addition to their use for instructional purposes, it is hoped, as candidates present themselves, that these plants will be more fully employed in post- graduate res-earch, which it is felt will be of considerable importance to the development of the iron & steel industry in India. Post-graduate research, which it is felt will be of consi-derable importance to the development of the iron and steel industry in India. Post-graduate work of this nature must play an important role in the provision of thoroughly trained personnel for the rapidly growing industry in India.
