SREE METALIKS – The Best Pig Iron Manufacturer In India

Sree Metaliks is one of the best pig iron manufacturers in India, producing high-quality pig iron, meeting both national and international standards, based on cutting-edge technology and years of expertise. It is manufactured at SML’s mini blast furnace using the process of producing hot metal from iron oxide burden, using coke, both as reductant and fuel.

Transforming Pig Iron into Cutting-Edge Steel Solutions

Pig Iron is an intermediate product in the iron and steel industry, produced by smelting iron ore in a blast furnace. It is high in carbon content, usually around 3-4.5%, and contains other impurities like sulphur, silicon, and phosphorus. It is brittle and unsuitable for direct use in most applications due to its high carbon content and impurities. The primary purpose of producing pig iron is to further refine it into steel through various processes. The carbon content is reduced during the steelmaking process to manufacture steel with the desired properties, such as strength, ductility, and corrosion resistance.

The state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities, rigorous quality control processes, and commitment to efficiency make us a preferred choice in the iron and steel industry. With a strong focus on customer satisfaction and reliability, Sree Metaliks continues to be a leading player, contributing significantly to India's industrial growth and steel production sector.



1. What are the three main ingredients used while manufacturing pig iron?

The three primary ingredients to be placed in the blast furnace are iron ore, carbon, and limestone. As pig iron has a lot of carbon content, it makes pig iron very brittle and not useful directly as a material except for limited applications.

2. What is the purpose of pig iron?

Pig iron is used for steel making, foundries, alloy making, automotive castings, and other iron-based castings. It is the principal component of the charge makeup used by high-quality ferrous foundries and steel mills.

3. What type of metal is pig iron?

Pig Iron is a high-iron, low residual metallic material which is used to produce high-quality iron and steel products. You can check our website for information on pig iron.
