Blast Furnace operation: Iron and steel making
You are confusing two different stages in steel making. The blast furnace reduces iron ore to iron metal. It uses limestone as a flux and coke (made from coal) as the heat source. Air (not pure oxygen) is blown into the furnace as part of the chemical process to
Pig iron - blast furnace route | International Iron …
The blast furnace gas that leaves the top of the furnace is a mixture of carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, hydrogen and nitrogen and has a calorific value between 3,200 and 4,000 kJ/m³. After cleaning, it is used for a variety of purposes, including heating of the hot blast stoves [“cowpers”], in iron ore agglomeration plants and for electricity generation.
Lime, an essential component in the steel industry
A process, that can be made in two ways: Primary steel making or secondary steel making. Types of steel-making processes 1) Integrated or Primary steel-making: This is carried out in what is called a blast furnace where the fusion of the metal and the first
Blast Furnace Process Of Manganese
Blast furnace gas is produced during the iron oxide reduction in blast furnace iron making in which iron ore, coke and limestone are heated and melted in a blast furnace and is an indigenous process gas of the steelworks industry (Pugh et al., 2013).

The sequence of making steel in an electric arc furnace
Many countries that cannot make iron by the traditional Blast Furnace route but have sufficient supplies of scrap have developing steel industries based on the EAF process. The output of iron from Blast Furnaces is likely to decline in the future because of diminishing …
Blast Furnace Charge (Raw Materials for Steel-making) - …
1. QUALITY OF CHARGE MATERIAL: A blast furnace charge consists of coke, ore or sinter, and limestone. These materials must be in lumps of a certain size (40-60 mm). Larger lumps prolong the process of reduction and fluxing. Smaller lumps block the flue-gas passages and prevent a uniform descent of melting materials in the furnace. 2. IRON ORES: Ore is a metal bearing mineral. The most
U.S. Steel’s Fairfield electric arc furnace nearing …
The furnace then raises up hydraulically and pivots, and the scrap falls into the furnace, beginning the steel making process. Three graphite electrodes come down to melt the scrap, using eight

Steelmaking and Refining | Introduction to Chemistry
The HIsarna steelmaking process is a process of primary steelmaking in which iron ore is processed almost directly into steel. The process is based on a new type of blast furnace called a Cyclone Converter Furnace, which makes it possible to skip the process of manufacturing pig iron pellets, a necessary step in the basic oxygen steelmaking process.
STS making - Iron and steelmaking III: Other …
The stainless steel is typical produced not from blast furnace-BOF route but it is produced from electric arc furnace process by collecting the scrap which was stainless steel. This melts in electric arc furnace, however contrary to the conventional electric arc furnace process for normal carbon steel, the stainless steel contains high amount of chromium which is easily oxidized.
