The mixed material is fed to pelletizing discs of 7.5 meter dia for production of green pellets, which are screened on Double Decker roller screen to remove the un-sized material.

The sized green pellets are fed to the indurating machine of 492 Sq meter grate area. The green pellets are dried, pre-heated fired at high temperature and cooled in the indurating machine. The pellets after screening to remove the undersized materials are conveyed to a stockpile.
