Processes And Procedures In The Extraction Of Iron
Of iron ore, using an integrated steel manufac turing process or a direct reduction process. In the conventional integrated steel manufacturing process, the iron from the blast furnace is con verted to steel in a basic oxygen furnace (BOF). Pig iron is manufactured from sintered, pelletized, or lump iron.The process of recovering iron from iron ores starts with mining processes, stripping the earth’s outer layers that contain this metal. Iron ore then gets converted into various versions of what we call “iron” today. Before this happens, however, it must be processed in a blast furnace, producing pig iron.
