Generate value from your excess pig iron

Granulation of iron has proven to be an enabler to resolve difficulties in the balance of plants in integrated steelmaking. It adds a degree of freedom which allows for a much more flexible operation where all iron produced is contributing to the steel production while the production units are allowed to operate independently at an optimum pace.

This is especially valuable when the production system is under stress or when changes are to be introduced. Ironmaking excess iron is solidified to form a high-quality iron feedstock for internal and external use. The metal granulation process’ flexibility and feedstock usability secure the plant productivity and product quality and minimise the risks associated with an unbalanced plant.

Pacing the ironmaking with steelmaking operations is a challenge. Most integrated steelmakers lose several thousand tonnes of iron annually due to downstream troubles or, which is probably worse, pacing unbalances induce ironmaking operational down-time and disturbances.

The introduction of a metal granulation unit enables the iron producer to operate without the constraints of the downstream steelmaking operations. The added flexibility and independence are valuable properties during systems transformations or periods of instability. Furthermore, metal granulation maintains the high value of iron metal.

Any excess pig iron from the blast furnace is accommodated by the granulation unit and converted into a solid metallic feedstock. This feedstock holds properties making it suitable for use in most metallurgical operations such as electric arc furnace or converter. It ensures that all iron produced adds value to the steel production or when sold to external clients.
