S.P Kumaresh Babu, an associate professor working with the Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering at National Institute of Technology (NIT)-Tiruchi has been granted Rs.215.31 lakh by the Central Mine Planning and Design Institute Limited to work on a joint project with Neyyali Lignite Corporation. The project aims at preventing erosion in steel pipelines used in mines.

Kumaresh received the grant under the Coal Science and Technology (S&T) Grant, which was introduced in 1975 to enhance production methods as per the rising energy demands. NLC too has been given a sanction of 78.68 lakh. The grant helps support research which contributes to modernization and improving productivity, conservation and usage of resources.

The project headed by the associate professor is titled as 'Enhancing life of de-watering pipes in coal/lignite mines by prevention of erosion-corrosion with nano-crystalline surface engineering treatments'. The project is aimed at helping NLC counter problems of erosion that occur in the carbon steel pipes used to carry slurry water from the mines. Solid particles in the slurry cause a lot of erosion, depending on the weight of particles, velocity, pH of water, dissolved oxygen and concentration of ions.

Sources revealed that the project will analyse various causes of erosion and then find suitable ways to counter them using nano crystalline surface engineering methods.

Mr.Kumaresh has over 17 years of experience in the industry and has worked in areas including composite materials, surface engineering, metal casting and corrosion.
