iron from ore to steel process

Steel is mainly produced via two different process routes: the path from "iron ore to steel" and the path from "scrap to steel". With the iron-ore based route, hot metal is mostly produced from iron oxide ores in blast furnaces, and more rarely in smelting reduction plants, and is processed to make crude steel in oxygen converters.

Steel mill

A steel mill or steelworks is an industrial plant for the manufacture of steel. It may be an integrated steel works carrying out all steps of steelmaking from smelting iron ore to rolled product, but may also be a plant where steel semi-finished casting products are made from molten pig iron or from scrap .

Ironworks

An ironworks or iron works is an industrial plant where iron is smelted and where heavy iron and steel products are made. The term is both singular and plural, i.e. the singular of ironworks is ironworks. Ironworks succeed bloomeries when blast furnaces replaced former methods. An integrated ironworks in the 19th century usually included one ...

Energy Use in US Steel Manufacturing

Steel is simply low-carbon iron. As such, the steel manufacturing process begins by smelting iron ore (Fe 2 O 3 or Fe 3 O 4) in a blast furnace.This smelting process melts out and separates iron from the original rock material. Iron ore is mixed with coke, a form of ...

Export Policy for Iron Ore | Ministry of Steel | GoI

KIOCL is the canalizing agency for its own products (iron ore concentrates and iron ore pellets) since it is a E.O.U (export oriented unit). High-grade iron ore (Fe content above 64%) from Bailadila in Chhattisgarh is allowed to be exported with restrictions on quantity imposed primarily, with a view to meet domestic demand on priority.

Recycling of steel plant mill scale via iron ore pelletisation …

Mill scale is an iron oxide waste generated during steelmaking, casting and rolling. Total generation of mill scale at JSWSL is around 150 t/day and contains 60–70%FeO and 30–35%Fe 2 O 3 . To recover the iron, the mill scale must be smelted in a blast furnace or other reduction furnace; however, it is usually too fine to use without previous agglomeration such as via pellet or sinter mix.
