Q) What is steel?

Steel is an alloy of iron and carbon containing _______. Steel is the most important engineering and construction material in the world. It is used in every aspect of our lives, from automotive manufacture to construction products, from Cars to refrigerators and washing machines and from cargo ships to the finest scalpel for hospital surgery. Defence, railways, construction, engineering, power, automotive, etc.

Q) What's the difference between an alloy and an ore?

An alloy is a homogeneous mixture of elements; at least one of the elements must be a metal. An ore is a naturally occuring mixture (usually heterogenous) that contains a particular metal (or a compound of that metal) in amounts that make extraction of the metal economically worthwhile.

Q) How does steel become stainless?

A: Adding 10 to 30 percent chromium to steel creates stainless steel, which is very resistant to rust.

Q) Do you manufacture aeronautical grade of alloys?
Q) What is iron ore?
Q) Have you ever wondered how people refine iron and steel? You probably have heard of iron ore, but how is it that you extract a metal from a rock?
Q) How Do We Mine Iron Ore?

To make iron, you start with iron ore. Iron ore is simply rock that happens to contain a high concentration of iron.

Common iron ores include:

Hematite - Fe2O3 - 70 percent iron
Magnetite - Fe3O4 - 72 percent iron
Limonite - Fe2O3 + H2O - 50 percent to 66 percent iron
Siderite - FeCO3 - 48 percent iron

If you had to pick a few technologies that have had a tre­mendous effect on modern society, the refining of iron and steel would have to be somewhere near the top of the list. Iron and steel show up in a huge array of modern products. Cars, tractors, bridges, trains (and their rails), tools, skyscrapers, guns, ships -- even the common steel can -- all depend on iron and steel to make them strong and inexpensive.
Basic shapes such as plates, sheets, strips, rods, bars, and tubing. This industry also uses blast furnaces and coke ovens.
