Carbon Steel and Mild Steel | Metal Casting Resources
Carbon steel is comprised of iron and carbon, and is the most common egory of steel, making up approximately 85% of all steel production in the US. The carbon content of the product is in the 0–2% range and gives the metal carbon-like properties due to the influence of the carbon on the microstructure.
Sulphur removal in ironmaking and oxygen steelmaking
itis cast intosolid steel. Figure 1 givesa schematic overview of the BF-BOF steelmaking process1–5. One of the above-mentioned unwanted impurities in the steelmaking process is sulphur (although there are certain steel grades that require sul-phur). Sulphur 6,7
Historically, the steel industry has used the blast-furnace method with coal-fired plants to process iron ore. This method is costly, inefficient, and generates significant pollution. As more producers have turned to recycled-steel metals, arc-furnace technology has become more prevalent, with the promise of lower costs, longer operations and uptime, and less pollution.

Vacuum Degassing of Steel
During the steelmaking process, while the molten steel is still in the ladle and before it is poured, the steel must be degassed in order to: (1) reduce/eliminate dissolved gases, especially hydrogen and nitrogen; (2) reduce dissolved carbon (to improve ductility); and (3) to promote preferential oxidation of dissolved carbon (over chromium) when refining stainless steel grades. In the steel
Melt Shop Processes - Nucor Steel Gallatin
The process of melting a charge of scrap is called a heat. The melt shop computer system identifies each production batch with a unique heat nuer. To begin melting, the single 30" diameter graphite electrode is lowered into the furnace, and an electric arc is struck between the top and bottom electrodes.

Influence of the chemical composition on steel casting …
2017/1/1· As known, carbon content directly influences the steel melting temperature, ranging from 1521 C in low-carbon steel (0.2%C) to 1486 C in high-carbon steel, as given in Table 1. The awareness of the liquidus temperature and steel temperature control in the refining and casting processes is essential to ensure the continuity of the productive process at melt shop  .
