Chemical Composition of SML Pig Iron
|Carbon||3.5 to 4|
|Silicon||1 to 1.5|
|Sulphur||.050 to .080|
|Phosphorus||.080 to .120|
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.
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. For more details, click here.
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.
