22.5: Reduction of Metals

 · Consequently blast-furnace iron is still referred to as pig iron. A single large blast furnace may produce more than 10 6 kg iron per day. For each kilogram of iron, 2 kg iron ore, 1 kg coke, 0.3 kg limestone, 4 kg air, 63 kg water, and 19 MJ of fossil-fuel energy are required.

How iron is made

The chemical content of the iron ores received from the various mines are checked, and the ore is blended with other iron ore to achieve the desired charge. Samples are taken from each pour and checked for chemical content and mechanical properties such as strength and hardness.

3A(1) Structures of Iron and Steel

Iron atoms arrange themselves in one of two stable crystal structures called the body-centered cubic structure and the face-centered cubic structure. The body-centered cubic structure of iron, which is called ferrite, is stable at (i) a temperature of 1,665K (1,392 ) or above and (ii) at 1,184K (911 ) or below, the crystal forms being referred to as iron and a iron, respectively.

A sample of iron ore (0. g) was fused with K2 S 2 O 7 in a porcelain crucible over a meeker burner (1 hour) and after cooling was dissolved in water The Fe (III) was reduced to Fe (II) by passing the acidified solution (H 2 SO 4) through a zinc reductor.

Structural Steel in Construction from Construction …

As a basic chemical element Fe, iron is the most abundant metal on Earth. For many centuries, iron furnaces have heated limestone and iron ore that was excavated from the ground. The intense heat melts the both the rock and iron ore, along with several chemical reactions and the lighter liquid rock rises to the top and the heavier liquid iron sinks, creating pig iron.

Iron (Fe)

Iron is chemically active and forms two major series of chemical compounds, the bivalent iron (II), or ferrous, compounds and the trivalent iron (III), or ferric, compounds. Applications Iron is the most used of all the metals, including 95 % of all the metal tonnage produced worldwide.

Iron and steel

 · The coke "steals" the oxygen from the iron oxide (in a chemical process called reduction), leaving behind a relatively pure liquid iron, while the limestone helps to remove the other parts of the rocky ore (including clay, sand, and small stones), which form a wasteslag.

Different Types of Iron Ore

 · Iron formation consists of iron ore such as siderite, magnetite, and hematite, with silica in the form of chert, jasper, etc., generally in bands, but sometimes not distinctly so. The bands of iron ore are at times high-grade, but are often mixed with a good deal of silica, the whole making an ore too lean for use without concentration.

This gas reduces the iron oxide, with a valance of 3, in the ore to iron. The main chemical reactions (reduction) in molten iron production are Fe 2 O 3 s + 3 CO g → 2 Fe l + 3 CO 2 g Fe 2 O 3 s + 3 H 2 g → 2 Fe l + 3 H 2 O g.
