PIG Iron

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. Pig iron types are suitable for producing ductile iron. Pig iron grades used for the production of ductile iron are low in element silicon, manganese, sulphur and phosphorus.. The purpose of a blast furnace is to chemically reduce and physically convert iron oxides into liquid iron called "hot metal". In electric furnace use of steel grade pig iron improves casting quality as well and has benefits like softening of the resulting iron and corresponding improvement of its machinability - reduction in liability to shrinkage.
