      Pig / cast iron has high carbon content. It is brittle so it has limited use. Its carbon content is lowered to desired level to get steel or wrought iron. Carbon content is reduced by adding calculated quantity of Fe2O3 (ore) to molten pig iron. The iron oxide get reduced by the carbon of pig iron to get iron of the desired carbon content. The private sector accounted for 94% of total production of pig iron in the country. Pig iron, crude iron obtained directly from the blast furnace and cast in molds. Sponge Iron: India, world’s largest producer of sponge iron (), has a host of coal based units located in the mineral-rich states of the country.

      The higher carbon content made blister steel much more workable than pig iron, allowing it to be pressed or rolled. Blister steel production advanced in the s when English clockmaker Benjamin Huntsman while trying to develop high-quality steel for his clock springs, found that the metal could be melted in clay crucibles and refined with a. Pig iron is produced as a co-product through the smelting of ilmenite in electric arc furnaces. The primary product in the process is titanium dioxide slag. Various grades of pig iron are produced at our operations in South Africa. Depending on the grade, our pig iron is sold into the foundry and steel industries.

      Pig iron production is generally only one step in the creation of a finished iron product, since the high carbon content of iron in this form makes it mostly unusable. To make it more versatile, it can be melted again and mixed with slag, creating wrought iron, or combined with additional iron ore and alloys to create cast iron. • The high density and high carbon content of Foundry Pig Iron improves melting rates or reduces energy consumption. In an electric induction furnace savings can be as high as 50 kWh/t of molten metal. In a cupola furnace savings of up to 50 kg coke/t of molten metal can be achieved.

Pig iron is classified on the basis of contents of free and combined carbon as follows. These classifications are also termed as grades. Grey pig iron (Grades 1, 2 and 3) Grey pig iron contains about 3% carbon in free form (i.e., graphite form) and about 1% carbon in combined form.

This is a soft type of pig iron. White pig iron (Grades 4). Wrought iron is made by placing pig iron and a good quality iron ore in a puddling furnace.

The ore contains oxygen which combines with the silicon and manganese to form a slag which in turn absorbs the phosphorous.

While slag still molten, mixture is stirred thus removing some carbon. Carbon is everywhere: In the paper of every book, the ink on its pages, and the glue that binds it; in the soles and leather of your shoes, the synthetic fibers and colorful dyes of your clothes Author: Robert M.

Hazen. NPTEL provides E-learning through online Web and Video courses various streams. Iron-carbon phase diagram To refine steel from either scrap or pig iron, the amount of carbon must be carefully controlled. In M&Z, Fig shows a typical iron-carbon diagram.

This helps us to understand how this control is done. A slightly more colorful version of the iron-carbon phase diagram follows. 24 Iron-carbon phase diagram--terms. Pure iron (containing a maximum of % carbon at room temperature), wrought iron (carbon) and cast (pig) iron (containing –4% carbon) have at room temperature the bcc (α-iron, ferrite) crystal structure and they are (ferro)magnetic.

They have poor mechanical properties and easily become rusty and corroded. Carbon strengthens iron by distorting its crystal latice. This distortion is similar in effect to work hardening. It is unfortunately a very complex effect and depends on how the steel is heat treated and exactly what percentage of carbon is added (4% by wieght normally).

It is not true of all metals. Iron ore is a non-fungible commodity, and its quality varies. To help facilitate price adjustment for differences between expected and delivered product specifications, PRAs have developed value-in-use (VIU) indices for the key price-affecting chemical components of iron ore - iron.

Furnace. Pig iron and refined iron ore pellets (briquetted iron) can also be used, and because his t method is economic at lower volumes these operations are called mini mills. Plants that use Electric Arc Furnaces can be sited closer to the market. Where market size permits, some degree of product specialisation is practised.

Raw Materials. Iron in all its forms (cast iron, steel and rolled metal) is the most used construction material in the modern global economy. It retains the leading place in construction ahead of wood, competing with cement and interacting with it (ferroconcrete), and still competing with new types of constructional materials (polimers, ceramics).

Description. Pig iron is the intermediate product of smelting iron ore with a high-carbon fuel such as coke, usually with limestone as a flux. Charcoal and anthracite have also been used as fuel. Pig iron has a very high carbon content, typically –% which makes it very brittle and not useful directly as a material except for limited applications.

Iron ore has been smelted in crude furnaces in the Indian subcontinent for at least the last years, but the history of its modern iron and steel industry is short.

The arrival of a fully integrated steel mill on modern lines dates back only to the end of the nineteenth century when the Bengal Iron and Steel Company was set up at Kulti in.

Question is ⇒ The percentage of carbon in pig iron varies from, Options are ⇒ (A) to %, (B) to %, (C) to 4%, (D) 4 to %, (E) to %., Leave your comments or Download question paper. The quantity of carbon contained in the iron is decisive with regard to the hardness of the material and therefore its subsequent usability.

At this point it is important to note that far more carbon can be absorbed in the gamma mixed crystal. Iron and carbon form a chemical compound called cementite (Fe3C).

Figure showing partial iron-carbon. The higher carbon content of cast iron means that it solidifies as a heterogeneous alloy, and therefore has more than one microcrystalline structure present in the material.

It is the combination of high carbon content, and the presence of silicon, that gives cast iron its excellent castability. Various types of cast irons are produced using. Technical Advisor, and the Pig Iron Sub-Committee, chaired by Rodrigo Valladares, CEO of Viena Siderúrgica S/A, for preparing and editing the information presented in this guide.

It also contains carbon and reduces the energy consumption of a melt. Because pig iron is sold to external customers, the material is shipped in bulk and often. That's a look at some basics concerning the iron-carbon-steel relationship and its influences on welding and metal alloys.

Next time we'll look at hardening and ways to make metals stronger. We'll also consider the influences of some key alloying elements and the effects of welding on metallurgy.

Pig iron and cast iron are different types of metal. Pig iron is an unrefined product that has been converted from iron ore, one step in the process to create steel. Cast iron is then derived from pig iron that has been remelted, along with scrap iron and scrap steel.

Pig iron is an intermediate product of the iron industry, also known as crude iron, which is obtained by smelting iron ore in a blast furnace. It's not just that carbon gives strength to steel, it's that a certain percentage of carbon in iron gives strength to steel by preventing dislocations (basically defects in the crystalline structure).

There is a maximum of about 2% carbon in steel. Pig iron is typically %% carbon by mass. These ferroalloy and casting standards are helpful in guiding metallurgical laboratories and refineries, product manufacturers, and other end-users of cast iron and its alloys in their proper processing and application procedures to ensure their quality towards safe use.

List of cast iron .Question is ⇒ Pig iron is the name given to, Options are ⇒ (A) raw material for blast furnace, (B) product of blast furnace made by reduction of iron ore, (C) iron containing huge quantities of carbon, (D) iron in molten form in the ladles, (E) iron scrap., Leave your comments or Download question paper.Pig iron was believed to already exist in some areas of China during the 11th century.

Out of pig iron, the Chinese people had built their cannons and other iron weapons. Some used pig iron in decorative arts like molding figurines and statues. Carbon steel is one of the products of refined pig iron.

Creating pig iron is the intermediary step.
