Some Significant Metallurgical Aspects of The smelting of Pig Iron in Electric Furnaces

CIM Bulletin, 1963


Almost every form of iron ore and carbon material has been used as a raw material in the production of pig iron in electric reduction furnaces. Experience derived from the operation of the large 33,000-kva. TyslandHole furnaces, however, indicates that production results are very much influenced by the raw material conditions.
