Dec 14, 2006 · Iron is the primary raw material used to produce steel — itself an alloy of concentrated iron with a minute amount of carbon. Globally, steel production drives 98 per cent of the demand for iron, while electronics and nonmetallurgical uses drive the remaining 2 per cent.
The smelting processes were carried out using carbothermic reduction in a submerged arc furnace. Two carbonaceous reducing agents and different fluxing materials have been used to adapt optimum smelting process condition. A maximum iron recovery of 83% was obtained by using graphite compared with 76% obtained by using coke.
While the loss of iron in the slag with an electric furnace running on pig steel would probably be greater than in the case of pig iron, owing to the weaker reducing atmosphere of the pigsteel furnace, it should not be so excessive as to prohibit the use of such a process under favorable economic conditions.
Formation of slag: calcium oxide is used in slag formation which, among other things, accumulates the waste materials that are produced in the steel making process. Moreover, it protects the metal from the elements in the atmosphere, such as nitrogen and hydrogen, it is also an insulator allowing the high temperatures reached in the process to

SUBSTANCE: proposed method includes charging scrap and lime into electricarc furnace, melting the scrap, pouring molten cast iron, oxidizing carbon with gaseous oxygen, dephosphorization, flushing the oxidizing slag through foreplate followed by tapping the steel into ladle and adding slagforming mixture and ferroalloys into ladle during tapping the steel.
Evidence of what is believed to be the first example of iron mining and smelting points to the ancient Hittite culture in what is now Turkey. Because iron was a far superior material for the manufacture of weapons and tools than any other known metal, its production was a closely guarded secret. Scrap iron and steel—in the form of old
Apr 19, 2012 · The steel making process in the oxygen converterconsists of: Charging steel scrap. Pouring liquid pig iron into the furnace. Charging fluxes. Oxygen blowing. Sampling and temperature measurement Tapping the steel to a ladle. Deslagging. The iron impurities oxidize, evolving heat, necessary forthe process. The forming oxides and sulfur are
Blast furnace, a vertical shaft furnace that produces liquid metals by the reaction of a flow of air introduced under pressure into the bottom of the furnace with a mixture of metallic ore, coke, and flux fed into the top. Blast furnaces are used to produce pig iron from iron ore for subsequent processing into steel, and they are also employed in processing lead, copper, and other metals.
reaction between coke and coal (carbon) and iron ore in a blast furnace. This process is called iron ore reduction and produces hot metal (near pure iron) which is subsequently converted into steel. Presently no largescale volume production processes are available to replace the use of carbon in iron
Removal Phosphorous from High Phosphorous Converter Steel Making Slag by Hydrometallurgical Process which is carried out as part of a modernization plan aimed at creating a 21st century environmentalfriendly iron and steel works, designs the smelting reduction process of producing stainless steel crude melts in a 150 t converter and
2, while others choose decarbonizing iron and steel production, by turning to hydrogen, electricity and biomass. In the nearer term, a technology that incorporates CCS into the blast furnace process itself and is called the TopGas Recycling Blast Furnace is under development, with a scaleup to a commercial size blast furnace under way.
At the same time, the smelting process can spray a certain amount of foaming agent (carbon powder) through the 0/C supersonic oxygen lance during the oxygen smelting to form foam slag. The foam slag can stabilize the arc and bury the heat deeply, and the electricity utilization efficiency can be
Sep 21, 2017 · In the traditional "blast furnaceconverter" ironmaking process, iron ore, fluxing agent, reducing agent and the like will be gradually melted after being added into the furnace, iron will be reduced and separated into molten iron, while the rest will form slag. And the slag should be smelting slag with certain ability to absorb impurities
In the smelting of gold and silver ores carrying no lead or copper to form either a lead bullion or a copper matte, but containing iron sulphide, the electric furnace might be used in connection with an air blast for oxidation of the iron sulphide, an iron matte being used as a collecting agent for the gold and silver a fair recovery can be
Iron and steelmaking process is energy intensive. Generally speaking, energy constitutes a significant portion of production cost, from 20% to 40%, according to the estimation from world steel association .About 95% of energy for an integrated steelmaking plant comes from solid fuel (mainly coal), 3–4% from gaseous fuel and 1–2% from liquid fuel.

Slag from steel mills in ferrous smelting, on the other hand, is designed to minimize iron loss and so mainly contains oxides of calcium, silicon, magnesium, and aluminium. Any sandy component or quartz component of the original ore automatically carries through the smelting process as silicon dioxide.
Corex process distinguishes itself from the blast furnace route by (i) direct use of noncoking coal as reducing agent and energy source, (ii) Iron ore can be directly and feasibly charged to the process in form of lump ore, and pellets, and (iii) use of pure oxygen instead of nitrogen rich hot blast.
Ancient iron production refers to iron working in times from prehistory to the early Middle Ages where knowledge of production processes is derived from archaeological investigation. Slag, the byproduct of ironworking processes such as smelting or smithing, is left at the ironworking site rather than being moved away with the product also weathers well and hence it is readily available
