PPT to PDF 1.4 <br />WELCOME TO SPIRAL PIPES DIVISION<br />
SPIRAL PIPES<br /> MEIL has been constantly striving to enter into diverse engineering areas to give its customers the best and Megha Spiral Weld Pipes is just another step in this direction. In the early seventies, the sharp rise in energy consumption, particularly that of Natural Gas, has influenced ‘The Development of Transmission of Oil and Gas through Pipelines’ and this development has necessitated the use of Large Diaz Spiral Weld Pipes with High Strength Pipe Materials of Improved Weld ability and Toughness.. <br />Spiral Weld Pipes have been and are being extensively used worldwide. Our pipe production ranges from 400mm dia to 3000 <br />mm of thickness 6mmto 25mm of API-5L grade X70, the quality is indisputable. The quality assurance factors that merit special attention are no different in Spiral Weld Pipes that that of Longitudinal Pipes. Spiral welded Pipes have gained acceptance for excellent applications based on an independent assessment of the manufacturer’s technical capabilities.<br /><ul><li>MEIL Design, manufacture and supply of water Hammer Control Devices according to the requirement of pumping main.

Water Hammer (Surge Control) Solutions<br />Surge or Water Hammer is a serious cause of damage in pipelines caused by a sudden stoppage of pumps. MEIL has been a technology leader in the design, manufacture and supply of solutions for Surge Control (Water Hammer Control).<br />It is our proud privilege to place on record that we are one among only two organizations having got the similar technology in India. MEIL has supplied thousands of water hammer control devices for hundreds of projects in the government sector as well as private projects. <br />Computerized Surge Analysis<br />Our end-to-end solutions in surge control start with a computerized analysis of the surge in the pipeline using our THOR software developed in-house by our own experts. We can also provide analysis using the SAP software to clients who need this. This analysis uses the pumping main data provided by the client. <br />The design of surge protection system is an iterative process in which a particular protection is proposed, water hammer analysis is made for that choice for power failure condition, the resulting surge pressures are evaluated, the protection system is modified based on the evaluation and the process is repeated until an adequate and economical protection system is arrived at surge or water hammer analysis.<br />Based on the computerized surge analysis, we recommend the best possible surge control solutions for the project. MEIL also manufactures and supplies the water hammer control devices required for surge control. Among the various types of devices, the three most common ones are shown below.<br />
Passive Water Hammer Control Devices<br />MEIL has developed two types of passive Water Hammer Control Devices, i.e., the Proportional Spring Loaded Check (PSLC) Valve and the Quick Release Damped Air (QRDA) Valve which can be supplied in different sizes depending on the requirements of the project. <br />MEIL has been manufacturing these valves in-house for their own use for more than twenty years. Now, all these "Megha Brand" valves are now being manufactured by one of the Associate Company, Spinneret India Limited, Mumbai. <br />Our valves are designed with minimum maintenance and supervision. The robust design withstands the natural elements over many years with minimal or no maintenance. These two types of valves are passive devices requiring no power supply for their operations.<br />WarrantyWe provide a one year warranty on all parts of valves. However, we are not liable to replace excessively damaged parts when the damage is caused by mishandling or unauthorized maintenance activities on these valves.<br />Active Water Hammer Control Devices – AIR VESSELS<br />MEIL also manufactures and supplies custom made Air Vessels for active surge control. These devices are located in places where electric power is available, e.g., near the pump house. Air Vessels are usually recommended when the pipelines are carrying large flow rates and/or the flow velocities are high.<br /> <br />
Megha Fibre Glass Industries Ltd.(MFGIL-GRP) has grown to become a recognized fabricator of FRP (Fibreglass Reinforced Plastic) continuous advancing mandrel processed Glassfibre Reinforced Polyester (GRP) pipes, which represents the state of the art in GRP pipe production technology. MFGIL-GRP is the First Plant in South India to manufacture GRP pipes on CFW Machine. This process allows the use of continuous glass fibre reinforcements in the circumferential direction. We offer products ranging from custom hand lay-up fiberglass, moulded fibreglass gratings, pultrusion profiles, filament winding pipes to continuously-made translucent roof/wall panels for metal building and wide flat FRP sheets for sandwich panel. All products are manufactured in strict accordance to the ISO 9001:2000 standards certified & IS 12709 standards certified. <br />
WHY GRP PIPES ?<br />Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) Pipes represent the ideal solution for the abduction of any kind of water, chemicals, effluent and sewers, because they combine the advantage of corrosion resistance, typical of plastics, with a mechanical strength which is comparable with the steel ones. Typical properties that result in advantages in GRP pipes application, can be summarized as follows:-<br />
Very Long Life, Virtually infiniteThe hydraulic design basis (HDB) of GRP pipe is such that even after 50 years of continuous service, the smooth inside surface is maintained throughout the entire life of the pipe.<br />Light WeightGRP Pipes have a high strength to weight ratio. They are light in weight in comparison to Steel Pipes, C. I. Pipes and PSC Pipes, ensuring ease in handling and quicker installation. HDPE and PVC Pipes weight is more than GRP pipe due to higher thickness.<br />Low Maintenance CostGRP pipes are virtually maintenance free throughout the life because of absence of corrosion.<br />
Easy Installation Procedure<br /> Laying of GRP pipes is a simple operation which can be done in short periods of time both above and below ground, as sleeve joints and spigot and socket joints enable fast and reliable assembling. The use of heavy equipment is practically eliminated.<br />Cost Effective GRP pipes are cheaper than D.I.Pipes, M.S. Pipes, C.I. Pipes &Pre-stressed Cement concrete pipes.<br />Corrosion ResistanceBoth the external and internal walls are in contact with the conveyed fluid. No protection such as coating, painting or mortar lining are needed. GRP pipes are resistant to nearly all chemicals even at much higher temperatures (upto 1400C) than other plastic materials.<br />
Smooth SurfaceSmoothness of the internal wall of GRP pipe minimizes the head losses and avoids the formation of deposits and also minimizes the slope. The interior pipe surface remains smooth over time in most fluid services. Therefore fluid resistance does not increase with age. The smooth interior allows the pipe diameter to be reduced while maintaining the desired flow.<br />Hydraulic EfficiencyBecause of higher “C” Value (150-160), frictional losses in GRP Pipes are much less compared to those of conventional pipes. Hence, recurring energy charges and pumping cost are lower in GRP Pipes.<br />Surge PressureDue to its inherent characteristic, Wave Celerity value is lower than conventional pipes. Thus water hammer in GRP pipes is less. Moreover, since GRP pipes can withstand pressure upto 1.4 times the surge pressure than the pipes in its on class thus it is better poised than others to minimize risk of pipe bursting due to water hammer. <br />
A Flexible Pipe, Not a Rigid PipeUnlike thick walled pipes with a high stiffness factor, which do not permit even very small deformations, GRP pipes constitute a homogeneous system together with the earth around them and transfer outside loads to the surrounding earth. Correct burial enhances the safety in case of working conditions which may be usually worse than those foreseen in the design.<br />Fire ResistanceGRP offers versatility in design and can be made fire resistant by proper selection of resin system.<br />Excellent Fatigue ResistanceUnder cyclic loading, GRP provides very high resistance to fatigue which enhances its performance for longer life.<br />Site ReparabilityGRP pipes are easily repairable at site or on field by means of butt-wrap Joint.<br />
CompatibilityGRP Pipes are compatible with DI, CI & Pre-stressed cement pipes. In addition to DI, CI fittings, GRP couplings/ GRP flanges can be used to join pipe directly to these materials.<br />Strength to weight Ratio<br /> The pipe has excellent strength to weight property. When <br /> the ratio of strength per unit of weight is considered, <br /> GRP composites surpass iron, mild steel, HDPE and <br /> PVC as shown in below table.<br />
Dimension Stability GRP piping system can maintain the critical tolerances required of the most demanding structural and piping application. The materials need the most stringent material stiffness, dimensional tolerance.<br /> Low Thermal Conductivity Low thermal conductivity of GRP pipe not only causes low temperature losses but also in many cases eliminates condensation or the need for additional thermal insulation.<br /> Proven Viable Alternative ~ Growing Demand<br /> Owing to the merits of the All Advantage GRP Pipes, make it the ultimate preferred choice over the existing pipe materials.<br />

MEIL – An Engineering Wonder -in Forbes Asia<br />It is a matter of great pride for the entire MEIL group that we have been featured in the prestigious Forbes Asia Magazine dated December 14, 2009, in an article entitled “The Big Gulp” written by Megha Bahree. Our Director, Mr. B. Srinivasa Reddy, coordinated the details of the article with the magazine correspondents which focuses mainly on our Pranahita Chevella Project. An extract from the article follows.<br />"This is almost like moving a river," says P.V. Krishna Reddy, MEIL's chief executive, and ordinary pipes just aren't big enough to do the trick. As a result the company is drilling two tunnels 120 kilometers long and 10.50 m diameter. Nor are ordinary pumps good enough. ITT has specially designed pumps large enough to power this water up to 500 meters uphill. This piece, which is known as the Pranahita Chevella project, will divert water to a tributary of the Godavari across 320 kilometers. At peak of the monsoons the pumps will require juice of 3,500 megawatts, which in India can power 1.2 million homes for a year. It will irrigate 1.6 million otherwise fertile acres, mostly in small plots, which are uncultivated or good for only one crop a year, at best. En route the flow will also supply water to villages for drinking and to growing business in Hyderabad.<br />
New Projects<br />Irrigation projects - Gujarat & Karnataka (11th March 2011):<br />The advancements in the engineering sector have culminated in delivering huge benefits to irrigation projects. These technical advancements have guaranteed a steady improvement in the quality of projects completed in this sector. As a case in point, MEIL has competed with some international firms to obtain three irrigation projects worth Rs 556 crore from SardarSarovar Narmada Nigam Limited (SSNNL). The orders from SSNNL will be implemented in joint venture with SEW that involve construction of pumping stations (PS2 & PS3) and pump houses. Mr.Subbaiah, the Vice President of MEIL, confirmed that the projects are scheduled to be completed in 24 months. The aim of the project is to provide water for irrigational purposes, through lift-irrigation system, in the Kutch region of Gujarat. The project, in a comprehensive scale, has a discharging capacity of 20,000 cusecs and runs for a length of 385 kms. The Managing director of MEIL, Mr. Krishna Reddy, has assured that the<br />projects will be completed on time along with adherence to strict quality standards.<br />MEIL has also bagged three projects from the Karnataka government valued at Rs 50 crore. These projects involve facilitating water for both drinking and irrigational purposes. A crucial part of the project entails a bulk water supply project to BasavaKalyan town in Bidar district, Karnataka.<br /> <br />
MahaGenco contract (Oct 27, 2010):<br />MEIL, the engineering, construction and manufacturing giant, secured a Rs. 23.94 crore EPC contract from Maharashtra State Power Generation Company (MahaGenco). The contract is for establishing and commissioning of MahaGenco's 2 MW Grid Interactive Solar PV Power project at Chandrapur Super Thermal Power campus. This set up in Chandrapur will be optimized with the installation of a solar power project with a capacity of 2 MW generated with the help of 20,000 solar panels. Each individual panel will have a production capacity of 1.7 million units.<br />The project will be implemented with the use of 'Thin-film' technology, which is the most advanced in this regard. The projected will be completed in various phases like design, engineering, manufacturing, supply, erection, testing & commissioning. The target for the completion of this project is 9 months. US-based 'Green Brilliance' and Spain-based 'Bio Sun' will provide assistance to MEIL in the technological aspects. Green Brilliance has already made a mark in our country by manufacturing photovoltaic panels - in partnership with MEIL, which carves up a 26% share. Green Brilliance has a production capacity of 15 MW which will, in partnership with MEIL, produce an additional 12 MW.<br /> <br />
MEIL bags Rs. 765 crore solar project (27th November, 2010):<br />MEIL has been awarded the construction of a 50MW solar power plant, which is a component of the first phase of Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM). The project will be implemented on a build, operate, transfer (BOT) basis. The estimated cost of the project is Rs.765 crore that has to be operational in a span of 30 months.<br />The managing director of MEIL, Mr. PV Krishna Reddy, stated that the 114 million units of power to be generated by the proposed plant will be sold to the NTPC VidyutVyapar Nigam, the nodal agency for implementing the first phase of JNNSM. He also confirmed that this would be the first project in the country to use concentrated solar power technology to produce power on a large scale. From an environmental perspective, the project will save carbon emissions to the tune of 85000 tons.<br /> <br />
MEIL - Solar Power Plants (15th December 2010):<br />The future of power will be the future of renewable energy sources. With growing pressure on the importance to keep the environment clean, most governments are eager to pursue alternate sources of power that will be renewable and environment friendly. The Indian government has a target to achieve a capacity of at least 20 GW of solar power by the year 2022. To keep up with such changing trends, MEIL has recently ventured into solar power generation.<br />A total of 37 companies have been chosen for the construction of solar power plants. From the complete list, there are some major companies from Andhra Pradesh which were awarded these bids: LancoInfratech, KVK energy ventures for the 100MW ventures; and MEIL & GPIL for the 50MW Though the initial costs are high, the company plans to beat the competition in terms of pricing by executing efficient methods in the process of mass production.<br /> <br />
Hydrocarbons – Assam (17th March 2009):<br />MEIL has gained a number of strengths that have become innate through its ventures in the field of engineering. Its excellence has also enabled MEIL to foray into the hydrocarbons sector - to tap prospects in both offshore and onshore projects. This sector is a key derivative that directs the company's efforts and expertise in generating global prospects. Starting with the implementation of numerous renewable projects on EPC basis, the company proved to be competent with facilities for Separation, Crude Distillation and Desalting, Gas Dehydration, and Gas Compression.<br />The company is currently executing a revamping project of one of India's largest onshore oil and gas field facilities for Lakwa fields in Assam. Endowed with a spirit of adaptability, MEIL has also forayed into divisions like laying of Trunk Pipelines, Gas Power generation, Hydrocarbon effluent treatment, Storage Tanks, Structural and processing plant piping, Shut-down maintenance and revamp works.<br />
